I Love - Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra

My First Romance
Norrie Paramor And His Orchestra
I Love
Essex Ultraphonic ESLP-102

Here's a great 10 inch 33 album cover from a run of records released by Essex, a label own by the Miller International Company. The unsuccessful label was active from 1951 into 1956. Many covers featured these great cheese cake images.

Apparently Paramor made an interesting album, that I have yet to acquire, titled In London In Love that featured soprano Patricia Clark, singing brief snatches of wordless vocals. He also produced the first British Rock & Roll single, "Teach You To Rock" by Tony Crombie and his Rockets.

  1. FABULOUS! This reminds me of all those early Gleasons the way the cover design looks and all!Or the Melechrino Moods series!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
