Well known live music archive
The Swedish Radio archive of live music recordings is known in Europe as one of the most interesting in the world.
All genres included
SR has broadcast since 1925 and the opening show was an entire concert. One of the main tasks is still to broadcast live music.
All genres of popular music are well covered on SR’s different daily music shows. Every week all year round, several hours of live music are recorded and broadcast.
A few examples from different popular music eras and genres
Lou Reed, Ray Charles, The Beatles, Beck, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix, The Cardigans, The Hives, Otis Redding, R.E.M., Frank Zappa & Mothers of Invention, Chemical Brothers, Wu-Tang Clan, Angie Stone and NAS. What steps should I take if I want to include a SR-produced recording on a CD?Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. If the terms below are accepted, we will send you a draft of a standard agreement and a copy (DAT or CD) of the performance which can be used to create the recording master.
The company is responsible for paying all costs related to post production as well as manufacturing costs and all costs associated with the distribution of the CD.
For the right to include SR-produced material on the CD, SR receives a flat fee based on the number of CDs manufactured including promo copies.
The flat fee payment is due on signature of the agreement with SR, before the CD is released. There are circumstances under which this fee can be altered but it should be checked with the SR Sales Department so that every leasing or recording from SR is treated fairly and the terms and conditions of the leasing are consistent.
The company is responsible for securing all mechanical licenses and copyrights for the use of the music included on the recording.
We also ask that the company includes, on the CD, information about the recording (when and where it was recorded, the name of the SR producer and recording engineer), plus the SR logo.
SR also reserves the right to check the quality of the recording as well as check the artwork and the liner notes.
SR should be sent 15 copies of each finished CD. 3 of these copies are sent to the record library at SR and the additional copies are given to the producers and engineers involved.
