Some History Of Capitol

Capitol Records began life in the United States in 1942. Founded by the Songwriter Johnny Mercer, the idea for the label was conceived while on the golf course. Based in sunny Hollywood the label garnered a huge cannon of artists including Nat King Cole and was the US label of The Beatles.

The label focussed on Pop Music and was 96% acquired by EMI in 1955. Capitol is currently owned by Universal Music Group who bought the label in 2012.
