featuring Duran Duran

Capitol Records: 1942-2002 (also known as Capitol Records Sixtieth Anniversary: 1942-2002) is a limited edition 6-CD box set featuring Duran Duran, released by Capitol Records on October 8, 2002.

About the box set[]

This is a retrospective box set featuring a collection of songs by various artists, that have recorded for the Capitol Records label.

2002 marked the 60th anniversary of the label, which issued its first releases in the summer of 1942 in the 78 shellac format. Each decade of recordings are represented on their own disc and have been 24-bit digitally remastered. Each disc comes in its own digipak sleeve with a built in booklet, featuring track annotations, photos and essays. All housed in a special 10¾" x 10½" x 2½" silver embossed black collector's box with a cloth bound 144-page photo book.

Capitol Records: 1942-2002 was nominated for the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package.

The compilation includes "Rio", one of Duran Duran's most recognisable songs, mostly due to its music video which is widely regarded as symbolic of 1980s glamour and excess. Also featured is The Power Station's debut single "Some Like It Hot".
