Retro Vinyl Find: My Personal Choice by Norrie Paramor & The Midland Radio Orchestra
Norrie was responsible for producing many big names in the 1950s and 60s including Cliff Richard, The Shadows, Helen Shapiro and Frank Ifield and for a time held the record for producing the most number one singles until he was overtaken by Sir George Martin.
This release from BBC Records pulls together 11 tracks Paramor recorded across four albums with the Midland Radio Orchestra in the 1970s including |Ebb Tide, She and Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.
A 12th track represents Paramor's own writing talents with a rendition of The Frightened City, originally a hit recording for The Shadows in 1961.
