VINTAGE MUSIC & IMAGE SOURCING AND SUPPLY

With over 100,000 records and 1000s of photographs of musicians and performers (with a special emphasis on Jazz, Blues and Stage performers) from 1897-1945 at our fingertips, not to mention over 40 years’ involvement in vintage popular music, we have an unbeatable resource for supplying historically authentic music and images for film, documentary, theatre, radio, publishing, advertising and corporate clients. 

Whether it's to provide 'period' feel for a drama, or a specific track for a TV commercial or a documentary, chances are we've either got it or can source it! 

We supplied much of the visual imagery and sounds for a recent full length film on the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and have worked on numerous projects with the BBC and other broadcasters, film makers and book publishers in the UK, Europe and USA.

We carefully research each client's requirements to ensure that the music or imagery supplied is absolutely authentic to the period required - for instance you wouldn't want 1930s dance band music for a drama set in the First World War - like the BBC drama 'Parade's End' had! Oh well...

High quality audio transfers using state of the art audio and noise reduction equipment can be supplied in  formats to suit the user - wav files, audio files, mp3 etc.

High-resolution record label scans and artist photographs from our huge collection of  music and theatre performer images from the 1890s to the 1940s can also be supplied - this is particularly useful for documentary makers and publishers.

Our rates are very reasonable and turnaround times can be tailored to suit individual needs.
