Numero Night 001

Numero Group releases
Started in 2003, Numero Group is small label out of Chicago that has been putting back into circulation some very cool tunes, with a focus on localized old soul, psych, and gospel. We love them because they do great work, give you the back story, package everything immaculately, and did this: http://www.numerogroup.com/products/eccentric-soul-the-capsoul-label.

On October 4th, Spoonful Records hosted "Numero Night." Owner Brett Ruland dusted off the turntables and deejayed selections from across the Numero Group catalogue, along with cuts from their first Eccentric Soul: Capsoul Label 001 & the new Eccentric Soul: Capitol City Soul 051 releases.

Daniel Moss, son of Bill Moss, founder of Capsoul Records of Columbus, Ohio, finished off the night with a 20-minute talk about his dad and the Capsoul label.

Numero Group liked our idea for the event so much that they sent us three test-pressings to give away, including the 3-LP Way Out Label and Bonus 12" and the Sensational Saints' You Won't Believe It. Winners were drawn that evening.

We enjoyed the event very much! Thank you to each of the 60 people that came out that evening. We hope to do it again soon and would love your suggestions! Which releases are you curious about?

SPECIAL THANKS to Numero Group for the test-pressings, Daniel Moss, and Reece Thompson who took these photographs!! Reece also videotaped the Daniel Moss talk, so we will post that in the near future!

Brett puts down the needle on some Purple Snow.  
A sort of pre-quel to Prince, Purple Snow chronicles the 
70's Minneapolis sound known for dance/funk/glam fusion. 
There's a whole lot of head-bopping going on!
