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 The 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.

Two of Numero's new releases dig deep into two of the more fascinating stories they've mined in their history—one of them, a heartening followup to their very first collection from 10 years ago; the other, a tumultuous decade-long trip through a label where cops rubbed elbows with numbers runners and a legendary running back was recruited to secure national distro. Both the Capsoul and Way Out labels were based in Ohio, the former in Columbus (hence the "Cap" in "Capsoul") and the latter up in Cleveland, but these collections' near-concurrent release and Ohio-based commonality hide the fact that both of these collections fascination for entirely different reasons.
Eccentric Soul: Capitol City Soul is notably symbolic—it bears the catalog number of 51, marking the 50th release for the label since 2004's Eccentric Soul: The Capsoul Label. That first collection bore the weight of what then felt like unrealized, long-post potential, right down to the water-damaged photo on the cover; that picture, like most of the comp's material, was significantly cut down when label head Bill Moss' personal archives were soaked in a friend's basement flood. And yet, after launching renewed interest in the Capsoul label with their first release, Numero's staff discovered that the label's influence was significantly wider in the Columbus area than the scraped-together remnants of Moss' collection even hinted at. Capitol City Soul's 20 tracks include long-lost material by Capsoul acts highlighted on the first collection; four unreleased recordings by the sweet-harmonizing Four Mints and a trio of raw but powerful demos by the balladeers Kool Blues are ideal supplements to the material unearthed 10 years ago.
