One of his first clients was the then-unknown Redding, whom Walden met at a local talent contest. The two developed a close personal and highly successful professional relationship that lasted until Redding’s death in 1967. In 1969, with the help of Atlantic Records’ Jerry Wexler, Walden founded Capricorn Records, which he turned into the force in ’70s Southern rock by signing acts such as the Allmans, the Charlie Daniels Band, Elvin Bishop, and the Marshall Tucker Band. Capricorn ended in bankruptcy in the late ’70s, but Walden moved to Nashville, and revived the imprint in 1995—the year he signed Chesney. In 2000, Walden sold the Capricorn label, and started Velocette records, which is now run by his daughter Amantha. Walden is also survived by his wife Peggy, his son Philip Jr., and four grandchildren.
