CAPRICORN
RECORDS

 American; based in Macon, Georgia.  Capricorn was financed by Atlantic Records, and was the brainchild of Phil Walden, manager of various R'n'B singers; it came into being in 1967. The label's biggest act was the Allman Brothers; thanks to that band and others in the same mould, it became renowned for its 'Southern Rock 'n' Roll' style. 1977 saw a move from Atlantic to Polygram, but the great days had gone; in 1980 Capricorn went bankrupt. As far as Britain is concerned, the Capricorn label first appeared as a member of the WEA stable in mid 1972, with numbering in the K-17500s. The injection-moulded labels and the 2089-000 numbers were from the later, Polydor group, incarnation. At the time of the change-over, in the summer of 1974, some singles with the WEA-numbered labels were stickered with a Polydor number and were distributed by that company. From 1977 the appropriate sign of the zodiac - a small picture of a goat - was added to the label, with the name shrinking in order to accommodate it. Capricorn never repeated over here the success that it enjoyed in the States. The discography below has many gaps in it, due to overseas issues. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
