A Brief History
Jimmy Ienner is a producer, advisor, publisher and consultant. He co-executive produced the "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack with Bob Feiden. The film's popularity aught the producers by surprise and the album had one million copies on back order before a single had even been released. The album spent 18 weeks at number 1 on the Billboard 200 album sales charts and went platinum eleven times, selling more than 39 million copies worldwide.
He has been awarded 85 gold and platinum albums, multiple Grammys and two Oscars, including one for the "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack, which remains one of the top selling albums of all time. He also worked on the soundtrack albums for "The Big Chill," "White Men Can't Jump" and "Sister Act."
Great record producer. Produced one of my favorite records of all time, Eric Carmen's "All By Myself." Talented guy and fun to be around.
