Around the same time, Capitol was able to sign New York phenom Mims. In this deal they also agreed to distribute his American King Music label. Around this time they were also able to add J. Holidaythe main artist for Music Line Group to the label as they have all become frequent collaborators.
Now it seems that Capitol has gained ground on some of the more popular labels such as Def Jamor Interscope Records with these signings. Dupri was the head of urban music for the label. In FebruaryEMI announced a merger of Virgin Records and Capitol Records into the Capitol Music Groupas part of this restructuring, hundreds of staff from multiple divisions were laid off and many artists were cut from the roster.
Capitol Records also released some of the most notable original cast albums and motion picture soundtrack albums ever made. Between andthey released the soundtrack albums of three now-classic film versions of Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals, Oklahoma!
The mono versions of the albums were all released the same year that the films were released. But all three films had been made in then state-of-the-art stereophonic sound, and so, Capitol was able to release stereo albums of the three respective soundtracks after stereo LP's became a reality. However, the mono and stereo versions did not contain always identical material. Because stereo grooves took up more space at the time than mono grooves, the former versions of the soundtracks were always somewhat shorter than the latter.
This was not much of a problem with Oklahoma! With Carouselhowever, half of the Carousel Waltz had to be lopped off from the stereo version, and with The King and Ithe instrumental bridge from the song Getting to Know You was completely removed from the stereo version. These soundtrack albums especially Oklahoma! Angel Records not only restored the portions which had been omitted from Ella Mae Morse / Freddie Slack - The Hits Of (Vinyl stereo LPs and original CD issues, but, inissued new expanded editions which included all music which had been omitted from every previous edition of these soundtracks, bringing the playing time of each to well over an hour.
All three albums continue to be best sellers to this day. InCapitol Records issued the original cast album of The Music Manstarring Robert Prestonan album which became one of the biggest cast album sellers of all time, even after the highly successful film version of the show was released in InCapitol issued a studio cast recording of the songs from Lionel Bart 's Oliver!
InCapitol released the soundtrack album of the documentary tribute, John F. However, the quality of the film was considered so high that the public was eventually allowed to see it. The film featured the voice of Gregory Peck as narrator, with narration written and music composed by Bruce Herschensohn.
The album was virtually a condensed version of the film — it included the narration as well as the music. One spoken word album which was immensely successful for Capitol was that of the soundtrack of Franco Zeffirelli 's smash film version of Shakespeare 's Romeo and Julietwhich became the highest grossing Shakespeare film for years.
The album featured not only Nino Rota 's score, but large chunks of Shakespeare's dialog. The success of this album in that pre-VHS era spurred Capitol to issue two other Romeo and Juliet albums — one a three-disk album containing the entire soundtrack of the film dialog and musicand another album containing only Nino Rota's score.
However, as Capitol was to be later accused of doing with Beatles LP), there was some tampering with the Years of Lightning and Romeo and Juliet albums. Extra music was added to some scenes which, in the actual film, contained little or no music, such as the duel between Romeo and Tybalt. Presumably this was done to show Ella Mae Morse / Freddie Slack - The Hits Of (Vinyl the score — and at the end of both the abridged and complete versions of the Romeo albums, the end credits music was omitted, especially unfortunate since virtually all of the film's credits were saved for the end of the picture.
Capitol tried to strike gold again with another spoken word album, one made from the film Cromwellstarring Richard Harris and Alec Guinnessbut in this case, both film and album were not successful.
The influence of the Romeo and Juliet album spread to other record companies for a brief while. Scott 's opening and closing speeches, as well as Jerry Goldsmith 's score, in their soundtrack album made from the film Patton. Capitol has been criticised many times for the heavy modification of albums being sold by Capitol in the USA which had been released in other countries beforehand.
Possibly most infamous is Capitol's creation of "new" albums by The Beatles. This began with Capitol's release of Meet the Beatles! Also notable is the issuing of "duophonic" stereo releases of some recordings where the original master was monophonic. Capitol engineers split the single master monaural track into two, boosted the bass on one track, boosted treble on the other track and combined them slightly out of phase to produce a "fake stereo" release. This duophonic process meant that the Beatles' Ella Mae Morse / Freddie Slack - The Hits Of (Vinyl fans would often hear a slightly different song from that heard by the rest of the world.
This trend continued through the Beatles' American discography, until the albums had little relation to their original British counterparts. The Beatles' albums were finally released unmodified starting with Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This was thanks to a renegotiation of the Beatles' complicated management and recording contracts. Tired of the way Capitol in the US and other companies around the Ella Mae Morse / Freddie Slack - The Hits Of (Vinyl were issuing their work in almost unrecognizable pieces, beginning inthey had full approval of all album titles and cover art, track listing and running order, worldwide.
Their first order of business was to stop the issuing of 45 RPM singles featuring tracks taken from their albums. Instead they would issue non-album tracks as singles in between album releases. This policy changed in late when a severe cash crunch hit the Beatles company, Apple Corps. Four months later Apple allowed Capitol Records to issue LP) singles compilation "Hey Jude" aka "The Beatles Again" to keep cash flowing to the company.
