  1. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

  2. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    I have now a considerable collection of UK Stereo Issued LPs from 1958 till about 1963. Apart from classical ones, I adore the Capitol studio photography from that era, down to Ken Veeder I am always looking for others.
  3. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Most interesting to read. Had you worked at Capitol?
  4. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Yes, to me the Mono and stereo are very different with Capitol doing a proper stereo mix-not that awfully 'separated' stereo.
  5. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Same as I posted
  6. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    As far as I know no, they don’t exist as regular LP pressings/releases.
  7. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Nice one-last week I received Nelson’ Route 66 LP UK Stereo copy.
  8. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Yes I do actually, would make sense & keep production costs down, have you seen the cover for ‘Love Tide’ again by Nelson.
  9. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    I have both the Mono & Stereo UK copies of ‘Blue Chiffon’ George Shearing 1959. Jack Marshall UK LP: ‘Soundsville’ both ST & Mono. Capitol (I think) were unparalleled in their photographic studio artwork. Have so many other doubles too. ‘Ports of Pleasure’ Baxter ’Sea of Dreams’ Riddle ’St Louis Blues ‘ Nat King Cole ’Wild Guitars’ Baxter ’Where Are You’ Sinatra ‘There’s A Party Goin’ On’ Wanda Jackon So many others.

  12. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Thank you so much yes I have many I can post-last one I tried to message said it was too large. Beautiful studio photo one of the few that had not a UK pressing.
  13. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Most only ever one pressing, yes they are all ‘flip over’ strengthened sleeves. Some from the 1950s here in the UK indeed had thin laminated sleeves in both sides a ‘scalloped’ sleeves. I have many double issues-that is the mono & the stereo pressings of the same recordings. The Stereo ones had the banner FULL SPECTRUM OF STEREO. Capitol started the banner with either Mono or Stereo on the top right corner of photo front 1960/61 until the banners themselves were discontinued altogether in 1965. Here in the UK the first Capitol regular LP (ST) and the first classical (SP) LP we’re first issued in September 1958.

    The Capitol LP covers here in the UK were exactly the same thickness, only difference being the stereo or mono logo in the banner. The large or medium logo were the more aesthetically pleasing than the small ones.
  15. Very Early Uk Capitol Stereo LPs

    Oh yes very much so! UK were superior pressings to US ones, lovely recessed labels 180/200g heavyweight ones. The cardboard used, was very hardwearing, the front covers has exactly the same photos used, they were laminated in Clarifoil. All were bannered with top white stripe having a repetition of the LP title. In the banner in the top right were a choice of three ‘STEREO’ logo’s: LARGE, Medium and small. I still say Capitol had the best artwork/photographic plates.
