MAY 15

Norrie Paramor (15 May 1914 – 9 September 1979) was a British record producer, composer, arranger, and orchestral conductor. Although the term 'producer' was not in frequent circulation at the time Paramor started producing records (the usual term being 'Artiste and Repertoire Manager' or 'A&R Man'), he effectively commenced this role in 1952 when he became 'Recording Director' for EMI's Columbia Records. Paramor produced hit singles for Cliff Richard.
Dreams & Desires,
 Others inckluded The Shadows, and Frank Ifield. Until George Martin produced "Candle In The Wind 97" for Elton John, Paramor and Martin jointly held the record for having produced the most number one hit singles, despite Paramor's death 18 years earlier. Paramor recorded one of the biggest selling albums from Capitol Records' "Capitol of the World" import series: In London in Love which featured the floating voice of the soprano Patricia Clark, who was used in many subsequent selling albums. This became his trademark orchestral signature sound.
