Thomas Gramuglia C.E.O of Michelex, states, "This acquisition fits right into the media division of Michelex and should help secure funding to continue operations and work on growth for the company."
The Hindsight catalog was created originally by the late Wally Heider - who specialized in studio recordings and the music of the Big Band era.
Gramuglia acquired the Hindsight catalog from Heider in 1979 - and began an immediate expansion of releases from the music of the 40's through the 60's, featuring Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Les Brown, Harry James, Woody Herman, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Jimmy Lunceford, Doris Day, Rosemary Clooney, Kay Starr, Johnny Mercer, Stan Kenton, Lionel Hampton, Benny Carter, Glen Gray, Eddy Howard, Jimmy Dorsey, Claude Thornhill, Dick Jurgens, Freddy Martin, Russ Morgan, Buddy Morrow, Bob Crosby, Jerry Gray, Helen Forrest, Mel Torme, Frankie Laine, Helen O'Connell, June Christy, Jan Savitt, Charlie Spivak, Billy Butterfield, Sarah Vaughn, Bobby Troup, Alvino Ray, the King Sisters with Frank DeVol, Tiny Hill, Sammy Kaye, Clyde McCoy, Jan Garber, Larry Clinton/ Bea Wain, Charlie Barnet, Carmen McRae, Henry Busse, Lester Lanin, Guy Lombardo, and others. Gramuglia's technical staff - made certain of the sound quality - before approval of these select records being issued in CD or other formats.
Hindsight's Massena headquarters warehouses all products - and acts as the control center for all business transactions. In releasing the Big Band era product, Gramuglia made certain of authentic - in-depth liner notes by securing the services of established music writers such as Dave Dexter, Jr., Eliot Tiegel, George Simon, Irving Townsend, Brad McCuen, etc. Veteran music industry executive Bobby Weiss utilized his numerous music business contacts to assist Gramuglia in securing rights to the majority of Hindsight masters.
