Press Release :
Three years after the release of our landmark Capsoul collection, we return to the scene of the crime, Columbus, Ohio, to unearth their crosstown rival: The Prix Label. The tiny imprint released less than a dozen singles between 1969-1973, but one look at the Prix archives told us that the tape never stopped rolling. In addition to choice cuts from their catalog, we've included four previously unreleased masters and a slew of demos.

The 19 track CD features Marion Black, Eddie Ray, the Royal Esquires, OFS Unlimited, the Soul Ensemble, Mitch Mitchell, Chip Willis, Penny & the Quarters, and Joe King.

When our first albuyms, Eccentric Soul: The Capsoul Label, was issued in 2004, it was lauded as Columbus, Ohio's answer to Motown. To the outside world, the capital city's soul heratige was an anomoly in a landscape dominted by Detroit, Memphis, and Chicago, but to those living inside I-270, Capsoul was just one of dozen's of tiny imprints being ignored. Across town, the tiny custom studio Harmonic Sounds was cutting and releasing equally as brilliant and left-of-center material on their Prix imprint, but it's what they didn't release that makes this record so special. In addition to 11 previously issued cuts, we've thrown on 8 more tracks that turned up an estate sale. Demos, finished masters, and what can only be described as "studio tomfollery" all here waiting to be discovered. Just like the Prix label was in 1973.
