Historic Cinesounds Library Sold to the Tape Gallery.

Sector : Retail and Consumer Listed on : 26 December 2008

Library of Four million unique sounds saved for the nation

During December 2000 Dennis Rodger one of the world’s greatest sound recordists, decided to sell the Cinesounds Library, a vast collection of sound recordings he had made and bought during his 45 year career

The unique sound library of almost four million film sound recordings, part of the United Kingdoms heritage, had been closed and put into storage at Elstree studios some three years earlier.

The sound library had been offered to the National Sound Archive who lacked the funds to buy it. Dennis had received offers from abroad but didn’t want the historic collection to leave Britain.

Turner Butler was asked to appraise the library at Elstree studios and suggested a substantial asking price. The sound recordings had been used in many major films including the James Bond series of films, “Les Miserables”, Ghandi, Chaplin, Entrapment and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

The Turner Butler research department found a ready buyer in Lloyd Billings of the Tape Gallery in London’s Soho, a company that is responsible for providing the sound tracks to a host of ads, as well as countless short films and rock albums.

Lloyd is well aware of the historical record the library will be able to provide in the future. Though the selling price achieved by Turner Butler was not disclosed, it can be revealed it was over seven times higher than the best offer Dennis had received previously from overseas.
