I am not thinking of YG approaching first Capitol Records (a major American record label) to release I AM THE BEST again. I am thinking of Capitol Records is the one who made the first act and start negotiating YG about the song. Not being arrogant but it is very unusual for a song owned by a Korean company to be uploaded again by another big agency in America. More like, maybe Capitol Records saw the potential of the song that is why they get the copyrights from YG and release it again.
I thought that the 2NE1 American album is confirmed and they are signed in Capitol Records? It turned out to be a rumor. []

R.I.P. American singer, actor, and filmmaker Frank Sinatra (1915-1998). He would've been 99 years old today! Beginning his musical career in the swing era as a boy singer with Harry James and Tommy Dorsey, Sinatra found success as a solo artist from the early to mid-1940's after being signed by Columbia Records in 1943. Being the idol of the "bobby soxers", he released his first album, The Voice of Frank Sinatra, in 1946. His professional career had stalled by the early 1950's, but it was reborn in 1953 after he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in From Here to Eternity. He signed with Capitol Records in 1953 and released several critically lauded albums (such as In the Wee Small Hours, Songs for Swingin' Lovers!, Come Fly with Me, Only the Lonely and Nice 'n' Easy). Sinatra left Capitol to found his own record label, Reprise Records in 1961 (finding success with albums such as Ring-a-Ding-Ding!, Sinatra at the Sands and Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim), tou ...
JODY MILLER Jody Miller (born November 29, 1941) is an American country music singer. Born Myrna Joy Miller, in Phoenix, Arizona, she was raised in Blanchard, Oklahoma, the youngest of five sisters. Career Discovered by actor Dale Robertson, she began her career in the early 1960s as a folk/pop singer, singing in the Los Angeles area and appearing on Tom Paxton's television series. She released her first album on Capitol Records in 1964 and had a modest pop hit that year with "He Walks Like a Man". In 1965, she participated in the San Remo Festival as a team companion of Pino Donaggio. Since the Festival was created as a composers' competition, Miller and Donaggio presented differently arranged versions of the entry "Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te)". The song came in on # 7 and was only a moderate hit until Dusty Springfield recorded an English version in 1966 which was eventually released as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me". Also in 1965, Jody Miller released an answer record to Roger Miller's blockbuster ...

The Beach Boys formed in 1961 in Hawthorne, California, and originally comprised brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Managed by the Wilsons' father Murry (not "Murray"), the Beach Boys released their debut single, "Surfin'," on the tiny Candix label in late 1961. A few months later, it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100, topping out at 1962, the group was on Capitol Records, where they enjoyed such hits as "Surfin' Safari," "Surfin' U.S.A," "Little Deuce Coupe," "Surfer Girl," "Shut Down," "Be True To Your School," "Fun, Fun, Fun," "I Get Around," "California Girls," and "Help Me Rhonda." The band's early music gained popularity across the U.S.A. for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. By the mid-1960s, however, Brian Wilson's growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group's musical direction. The primarily Wilson-composed "Pet Sounds" album and "Good ...

28th July - ON THIS DAY 1954, The first press interview with 19-year-old Elvis Presley was published in the 'Memphis Press- Scimitar'. 1956, Gene Vincent made his first appearance on national TV in the US on The Perry Como Show. Vincent had released ‘Woman Love’ the previous month, but it was the B-side, ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula,’ that eventually made the top 10. The song had been purchased from a fellow hospital patient when Vincent was recovering from leg injuries. A demo of the song made its way to Capitol Records as part of an Elvis sound-alike contest and a re-recorded version gave Vincent a hit. 1960, Cliff Richard and the Shadows were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Please Don't Tease', the singers third UK No.1. The song was chosen for release by a poll of Cliff's fans. 1960, Roy Orbison entered the UK chart with 'Only The Lonely', which went on to give Roy his first of 3 UK chart toppers. As an operatic rock ballad, it was a sound unheard of at the time, and is seen as a seminal event in the ...
This day in music history: In 1989, Paul's Boutique, the second studio album by The Beastie Boys, was released on Capitol Records.

THE BAKERSFIELD SOUND The Bakersfield sound was a genre of country music developed in the mid- to late 1950s in and around Bakersfield, California.[1] The many hit singles were largely produced by Capitol Records country music head, Ken Nelson.[1][2] Bakersfield country was a reaction against the slickly produced, string orchestra-laden Nashville sound, which was becoming popular in the late 1950s. Buck Owens and the Buckaroos, Tommy Collins, and Merle Haggard and the Strangers, are the most successful artists of the original Bakersfield sound era.[1] Other major Bakersfield country artists include Wynn Stewart, Jean Shepard, Susan Raye, and Freddie Hart. The Bakersfield sound was developed at honky-tonk bars[3] such as The Blackboard, and on local television stations in Bakersfield and throughout California in the 1950s and 1960s. The town, known mainly for agriculture and oil production, was the destination for many Dust Bowl migrants and others from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and other parts of the Sou ...

Once a Christian singer herself, Katy Perry is being sued by a group of Christian musicians for apparently ripping off their music for her hit song "Dark Horse," and tainting it with what they call "black magic." The musicians - Grammy-nominated rapper Flame (Marcus Gray), Chike Ojukwu, Emanuel Lambert and Grammy-winning rapper LeCrae (Lecrae Moore) - filed a lawsuit in in St. Louis federal court Tuesday against the pop star and Capitol Records, claiming Perry's hit single is a rip off of their 2008 song "Joyful Noise," according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The suit claims that Perry, 29, Juicy J, producers Dr. Luke and Max Martin, and other associates "infringed the copyright" of the Christian rap song, and have "exploited and profited" from its use. It also lobs that "Joyful Noise" - a song that has won awards in the Christian and Gospel music world and is featured on Flame's Grammy-nominated album "Our World: Redeemed" - has been "irreparably tarnished by its association with the witchcraft, pagani ...
Christian hip-hop duo Flame and LeCrae sued Katy Perry, Juicy J, Capitol Records and others on Tuesday for copyright infringement in a federal court in St. Louis, MO. According to the two rappers, Perry's song "Dark Horse" infringed the copyright of their Christian song "Joyful Noise". Flame, LeCrae and the rest of their God-loving posse also claimed that in addition to ripping off their song, Perry tainted it with "black magic". Waddaya think?

Mark G. Gough knew today's pop quiz answer: "Bad Man's Blunder," the Kingston Trio's eighth chart record, made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on June 20, 1960. Folksingers Gilbert V. "Cisco" Houston (who frequently toured and recorded with Woody Guthrie) and Lee Hays (a member of the Almanac Singers and the Weavers) wrote the song, which Houston had recorded under the name "Bad Man Ballad" on the Folkways label. Houston had been diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer by the time that Capitol Records released the Trio's recording of "Bad Man's Blunder," which reached No. 37 and remained on the chart for 10 weeks. It was the last single by the first-generation Trio (which included Dave Guard) to make the charts.

Not long ago, Katy Perry said she'd like to have her own record label. Well, now her dream has come true. It's called Metamorphosis Music, and it's a joint venture between her and her label, Capitol Records. Katy's first signing is Ferras, a singer/songwriter who's been a close friend of hers since 2007. You may remember his song "Hollywood's Not America," which was used as one of the "exit" songs on American Idol season season seven. He's also written songs for Adam Lambert and Ricky Martin, among other performers. Katy duets with Ferras on his brand-new EP, which is now available as a digital download, and she is also executive producer of the project. In addition, she's bringing him with her as an opening act on her Prismatic World Tour.
Dean Cyril Reed (September 22, 1938 – June 13, 1986) was an American actor, singer and songwriter, director, and social activist who lived a great part of his adult life in South America and then in East Germany. Dean Reed was born in Denver, Colorado, and moved with his family many times, living in various cities in California and Utah, and later returning to Colorado. He graduated from Wheat Ridge High School in 1956, where he was a star athlete on the track team. After a couple of years at the University of Colorado, Reed moved to California after realizing he had some talent as a musician, and recorded "Once Again" for Imperial Records as a one-off single to see if reaction to it would justify a full contract. No contract was offered by Imperial, but Reed subsequently signed a long-term recording contract with Capitol Records in 1958. Capitol groomed him to be a teen idol and he produced some modestly popular singles, including Annabelle, The Search, No Wonder, A Pair of Scissors, I Kissed a Queen, ...
Jennifer Lopez has long been a jack-of-all-trades, excelling in acting rolls, as an on-stage entertainer and in her assorted business ventures. “A.K.A.” marks the eighth studio album for the songstress, and first with Capitol Records. An eclectic mix of sounds ring throughout the set
[Perry Launches A Record Label, Duets With First-Signing Ferras On “Legends Never Die”] Who knew Katy Perry was such a baller? The serial chart-topper announced the launch of her own record label today (June 17). Metamorphosis Music, a joint venture with Capitol Records, is not a vanity project either. The company has already signed Ferras as their first artist and wasted no time releasing his self-titled EP digitally. If the name sounds a little familiar to you, it’s because Ferras was signed to Capital Records at the same time as Katy and even had a minor radio hit way back in 2008 with “Hollywood’s Not America”, which was used to promote American Idol. The Jordan-born singer/songwriter didn’t quite take off but he certainly left an impression on his then label-mate. “I believe [Ferras] is going to be an important artist to watch unfold,” the “Birthday” diva said in a statement. “I am so ecstatic the world gets to hear his music now both online and on tour with me.” She’s ref ...

Celebrating GREATNESS during Black Music Month…Thursday, June 5, 2014...The Flavor Unit “A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16 KJV Part 2 of 2…Flavor Unit Records and Management (Flavor Unit Entertainment) It was great receiving feedback from former Flavor Unit colleagues. Lynn Scott commented, “We were so young and doing BIG things.” Rebekah Foster added, “We were all learning and growing together—a real family.” And Kobie Brown profoundly said, “God puts us where we’re supposed to be for his purpose and time.” Those are my sentiments exactly. When I look back and reflect on that time in my life, I am reminded that Shakim was blessed with extraordinary vision. We all bear witness to that vision today. Although some of us didn’t go the full distance, we were a part of something that was destined for greatness. I remembered when I was leaving Flavor Unit, Shakim had a cow. He asked me to stay, but I felt in order to grow and develop . ...

Mini update on our book project: All is going really well. The layout is almost complete. We are still awaiting news from a few places from whom we have asked permission to include images. One of these is the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association who don't meet until July. JFYI - anything Disney related has been a no (or they want a giant fee)...and also the Capitol Records building wanted a fee, too. Most everyone else has been incredibly lovely and supportive and sent back immediate YESSES! There is still a lot to do in the meantime in terms of the actual creation of book - i.e. writing descriptions and credits for each image etc, perfecting the intro and acknowledgments, awaiting news from a big name to write the foreword, designing the cover, creating a website...and biggest of all putting together a press campaign and press kit and getting it out there. So, it looks like we will be aiming to publish in September, or thereabouts. :)

Rock Me Gently was a Billboard hit song for Andy Kim in 1974. The Canadian singer, who had achieved several hits from 1968 to 1971, had not had a Top 100 single since September 1971, and had been without a record label since early 1973. Nevertheless, he said in a 1974 interview, "I never mentally admitted defeat in spite of three years off the charts." He formed his own label, Ice Records, and personally financed the recording session that produced "Rock Me Gently". He could afford to record only two sides, and deciding the second side was good enough to be an A-Side, he put an instrumental of Rock Me Gently on its B-Side. The single impressed Capitol Records executives, who signed Kim to a deal. "Rock Me Gently" debuted on the Hot 100 on June 22, 1974, and took 14 weeks to reach on September 28. It also rose to on the UK Singles Chart. The Rockin' Apple
Hello everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I lived in Concord from 1951 thru 1973. I remember most of what you all describe. Brings back a ton of great memories. I graduated from Clayton Valley High in 1966. I was a member of the local rock band, The Bristols along with Rick & Jerry Nicklas and Kip Sheldon. We played all over the Bay Area, and eventually were hired as the tour band for Capitol Records Country artist Stoney Edwards for a couple of years. Still doing the music thing, and have a recording studio in my home in Arnold, Ca. I retired from Antioch Police Department as a Captain in 1997. I look forward to reading all the interesting posts here!

June 4, 1942…Capitol Records opened for business, becoming the first major record label based on the U.S. west coast. The company had been established earlier in the year – by songwriters Johnny Mercer and Buddy De Sylva with Glenn Wallichs – as Liberty Records. It was Wallichs, Capitol's manager, who invented the art of record promotion by sending free copies of new releases to disc jockeys.
Nelson NEVER lived in our estate while Mr Barnes owned it. As a serious researcher, I take offense to the snide innuendo posted here and the “assumption” that Nelson Eddy never was found at 1441 Angelo Dr, just 1330. That’s just not true. Just because Sylvia Durando states that Eddy was not a renter while her grandfather had the property, does not mean he was never there. This last weekend, I spent over three hours combined on the phone with Sylvia, Jeff Hyland (who sold the property to Paul Allen) and my source (Madeline Bayless) who visited Nelson Eddy at the “cowboy bunkhouse” at 1441 on a number of occasions. I believe we have now sorted out any confusions on this and if Sylvia chooses to post here again, I’m sure she will back up everything that I’m posting here regarding her end of the story. Both she and Jeff were very friendly and helpful in sorting out this matter once and for all. First, though, I will give the background of Madeline Bayless, the now 91-year old who actually WAS TH ...

When Jim Croce and I fell madly in love, I was a 16 year old artist, a gymnast, a folk singer, a high school sophomore and thought business was a “four letter word”. It was the early Sixties and Jim was a college Sophomore at Villanova University. We met at a contest, and he asked me if I would sing with him. We wrote songs, got an album deal with Capitol Records, and travelled a hundred thousand miles a year throughout the United States, in our beat-up VW, singing our songs. Jim was determined to be independent and make music his profession. When we discovered we were going to have a child, he wrote “Time in a Bottle”, “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim”, “Operator” and “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown”. After 300 days a year, for two years on the road, Jim’s songs finally hit the top of the charts. We moved to San Diego so Jim could host the Johnny Carson Show and do a movie with Cheech and Chong, but at the peak of his career while on tour, Jim Croce died in a plane crash in Natchitoches, Lou ...
Okay, FIFA isn't the United Nations. So I guess they also aren't Capitol Records b/c that World Cup sing is awful.
MIKE CURB One of the worst pieces of timing in my career was meeting Mike Curb too soon. I met Mike shortly after he had made a deal with Capitol Records to distribute the film score from "Wild Angels" with Peter Fonda and Nancy Sinatra. He had just opened offices for his Sidewalk Records at 9000 Sunset Blvd. His sister Carole was his "right hand man" and handled all the business for him. Looking back I realize he was struggling to get his company off the ground but there was something about Mike that very few people have...it's called charisma. From day one Mike looked successful. He was young, confident and could generate excitement for a project. From artists/writers to record company executives...every one wanted to jump aboard his train and ride it to the top with him. In 1966, I signed a band from Canada called "The Unforscene". They were just 15 and 16 but their songs and talent blew me away. I brought their demos to Mike and he immediately signed them. I truly believe the sessions I did wit ...

Happy Birthday to the rocker William Haislip "Billy" Squier (born May 12, 1950) an American rock musician. Squier had a string of arena rock hits in the 1980s. He is best known for the classic song "The Stroke", from his 1981 Triple Platinum breakout album release Don't Say No. Other hits include "In the Dark", "Rock Me Tonite", "Lonely Is the Night", "Everybody Wants You" and "Emotions in Motion". Squier continued to perform and record throughout the 1980s and 1990s. He released Hear & Now, which featured the singles "Don't Say You Love Me" (which hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and went Top 10 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart) and "Tied Up." In 1991, Squier released Creatures of Habit. It peaked at on the Billboard Album Chart. Squier released his final album with Capitol Records in 1993, Tell the Truth, which featured different sets of musicians performing the various tracks. He called it his finest album since Don't Say No, yet Capitol did little to promote it, and Squier walked away from the music ...
