Reelin' In The Years Productions LLC is the world's largest music footage library, housing over 10,000 hours of performances from all genres of music covering the last 50 years. We exclusively represent the rights to all of the music footage contained within 30 television stations throughout Europe & Australia and are able to license that material to all forms of media. Our music footage library includes full-length concerts; in-studio live and lip-sync performances, interviews, and exceptional b-roll footage.
In addition to our visual library, we also have over 2,000 concerts and in-studio live performances recorded for radio spanning the last 50 years. Most of the footage and radio recordings in our library have never been seen or heard by the world at large; our library is unique in the fact that most of the performances contained within were only broadcast once or twice in the country of origin. In many cases these performances were never broadcast at all.
In addition to licensing clips for documentaries, Reelin' In The Years also produces whole programs for DVD, television and other media. Among the more than 40 DVDs produced are the four-volume The American Folk Blues Festival 1962-1969 DVD series (Volume One was nominated for a GRAMMY® award in the category of “Best Long Form Music Video.”) Other DVDs include the certified-platinum The Temptations ¬ Get Ready, The Definitive Performances 1965–1972 and the certified-gold Marvin Gaye The Real Thing In Performance 1964–1981. Also released to international acclaim have been the 23 titles in the Jazz Icons DVD series featuring vintage full-length concert performances by artists such as John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington and Sonny Rollins.
Reelin' In The Years Productions will work with any and all parties to officially license and release both video and audio performances from our vast and unique archive. With more material being discovered each day, our archive of music footage is constantly increasing. If your project needs music footage, we have it!
