Album Cover Gallery:
#63 Cool Capitol Country - The '50s
"Sweet Dreams"
by Faron Young

Click the arrow for music


In the 1950s, Capitol album covers had a stylized chiseled look. They frequently used a photo of the recording star placed in a hand drawn background (see Hank Thompson). The music itself was always well recorded and featured a clean production with a rock edge to it.

These albums are predominately from the 1950s. However, I'm using 1961, when the Capitol logo was moved to the top of the label (T 1666 - see 7A) as the ending point for this gallery. This is prior to the Merle and Buck era that dominated Capitol country in the 1960s.
