It explains most of the song matching mechanisms in beaTunes. To create a list "around" a certain release year, I would create a new ruleset with heavy emphasis on the "Year of Publication" rule. Then select one song that represents the playlist best and use it to start a match list. In the match list dialog, make sure to select your new ruleset.
Alternatively, select your seed song, then "New Matchlist" and in the filter section of the match list dialog, add a filter that limits the results to the desired range (see attached screenshot).

Hendrik, I have not used the analysis or the other feature of the program will that jeopardize matching? The reason why is when I did run it once it was asking to change the integrity of the files etc which I didn’t want the program to do because in the end Traktor software is what I use and I have noticed if a file is messed with after import it reacts flaky.
