Fifty records later, The Numero Group returns to its eccentric roots, Ohio's Capitol City and the sonorous Shangri-La carved out by the indefatigable Bill Moss.

Filling in, around, and on top of our original Capsoul Label collection, Capitol City Soul is a trove of completely unissued and underissued treasures from Moss and company.

A decade in the making, this is the set of soul discoveries that no one but The Numero Group could achieve.

Features otherwise unreleased songs from the Kool Blues, the Four Mints, Jupiter's Release, and Love Maximum, alongside rare sides by Dean Francis & the Soul Rockers, the Chandlers, Associated Press, the Soul Partners, and the Vondors.

From the vaults under the basements under the garages of one of the nation's most unsung music scenes.

This double LP set is ensconced in a thick tip-on gatefold jacket splashed with a colorful spread of vivid archival imagery accumulated over a decade of research into the Columbus, Ohio culture.

The liner notes serve as an in-depth history of Columbus soul music, linking the Capsoul label with George Peter and Clem Price's Prix label and Norman Whiteside's Wee project.

The CD version boasts all of the same, with a few extra photos. A strong addition to the already epic Eccentric Soul series from The Numero Group.
