#ThrowbackThursday in 1956 Capitol Studios moved into the Capitol Records tower! #Recording #CapitolStudios #CapitolRecords #TBT Steve Genewick Recording Engineer
70 years ago today, on January 10, 1949, Capitol Records opened its 1st recording studios at 5515 Melrose Avenue, in Hollywood, California in the former home of first NBC Radio (1935-1938) then the Don Lee/Mutual radio studios.
The first session held there was for Scatman Crothers (on vocals, with Gerald Wiggins on piano, Danny Barker on guitar, John Simmons on bass, and Jesse Price on drums), who recorded the titles "Pretty Little Blue-Eyed Sally", "I'm The Only Man", "Do Something", and "I'd Rather Be A Humming Bird".
Capitol Records issued "Pretty Little Blue-Eyed Sally" and "I'd Rather Be A Humming Bird" together as a single (Capitol 15383), "I'm The Only Man" as a single (Capitol 57-70062) with "Just Looking" on the flipside, and "Do Something" as a single (Capitol 15431) with "Have You Got The Gumption" on the flipside.
The next two sessions held this day were with Jimmy Wakely (on vocals with an uncredited orchestra) recording an unissued take of the title "Just One More Kiss" and the titles "I Wish I Had A Nickel" and "You're Only In My Arms To Cry" at the first session and the tracks "If Santa Claus Could Bring You Back To Me" and "Christmas Polka" at the second session. Capitol Records issued "I Wish I Had A Nickel" as a single (Capitol Americana 57-40153) with "Someday You'll Call My Name" on the flipside, "You're Only In My Arms To Cry" as a single (Capitol Americana 57-40252) with "I Don't Know Why I Love You" on the flipside, and "If Santa Claus Could Bring You Back To Me" and "Christmas Polka" together as a single (Capitol 57-90040).
The building is now the offices of Paramount Pictures Security.
