K-Ark (TN) 45rpm 1st 1000 series (Custom pressings)


K-Ark (TN) 45rpm volume 5

In 1970 the unions closed K-Ark down as Capps had been using musicians at greatly reduced fees-some of which ended up in Capp's own pockets. His recording licence was revoked.

This didn't seem to worry Capps for long as K-Ark continued business as usual through the 70's and began scoring minor hits in 1989”

Just as Starday had before them, they recorded unknowns for a substantial fee which included 100 pressings of their disc.”


The 1st 1000 series are custom pressings for non union unknown musicians pressed in small numbers

Which is why these latter issues are hard to find. Some where pre-advertised in Billboard in 1970 but may have been held back till 1971 to escape the unions glaze.


Location : 728 16th Ave. So. Nashville, Tennessee

Owner : John Capps


1000 series (1st Series)


Note : K-Ark reused the 1000 Series numbers in the 1980’s when they moved to “6005 Port Jamaica Drive Hermitage, TN.” Please check label for address. This location will be coved in a latter volume.
