Project Description

Revamp of and older website for this record label.

Hindsight Records is an American record company founded by Wally Heider.

Heider built the catalog from Big Band jazz radio broadcasts that had never been released on record. In the 1970s and 1980s, he released over 100 albums, including performances by Duke Ellington, Jimmy Dorsey, Harry James, Stan Kenton, Mildred Bailey, Artie Shaw, and Woody Herman. For liner notes, he hired music historians such as Brad McCuen, and Irving Townsend.

In 1979 Thomas Gramuglia of the Michelex Corporation bought the Hindsight catalog. Through Heider, Hindsight owned over 9,000 copyrights and masters.
