Tony Brent With Norrie Paramor And His Orchestra - DB 4128 - 78 RPM

Tony Brent (26 August 1927 — 19 June 1993)was a British traditional pop music singer, most active in the 1950s. He scored seven Top 20 chart hits in the UK over an almost six-year period, starting in December 1952.

He was born Reginald Hogan Bretagne,and lived at Ebrahim Terrace, Spence Road, Byculla, Bombay, India of Anglo-Indian descent. During the 1950s Brent became a popular UK based vocalist, having relocated there in 1947. Two years after his move, Brent entered and was successful in a talent show held at the Regal Theatre in Kingston. He had sung a version of "Some Enchanted Evening", and this led him on to work with Ambrose and Cyril Stapleton's BBC Showband. His subsequent chart hits included "Walkin' to Missouri", "Cindy, Oh Cindy" and "Dark Moon". Brent's hits were all released on the Columbia label. He enjoyed iconic status in South Asia where his hits topped the music charts on Radio Ceylon. He resumed his travels in 1961, and left the UK to live in Australia. He owned a succession of Indian food restaurants, whilst maintaining his singing career. Brent died in Sydney, at the age of 65, of a heart attack in June 1993.His ashes were scattered in the Ganges.

Norrie Paramor (born Norman William Paramor; 15 May 1914– 9 September 1979) was a British record producer, composer, arranger, pianist, bandleader and orchestral conductor. He is best known for his work with Cliff Richard and the Shadows, both together and separately, steering their early career and producing and arranging most of their material from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Paramor was a composer of studio albums, theatrical productions and film scores.

Although the term "producer" was not in circulation at the time Paramor started producing records (the usual term being Artiste and Repertoire Manager, or A&R man), he effectively began this role in 1952 when he became Recording Director for EMI's Columbia Records. As well as being producer for Cliff Richard and the Shadows, he produced records for Ruby Murray, Eddie Calvert, Michael Holliday, Helen Shapiro, Frank Ifield, the Mudlarks, the Avons and Ricky Valance among others. Until George Martin—his opposite number at EMI sister label Parlophone—produced "Candle In The Wind 97" for Sir Elton John, Paramor and Martin jointly held the record for having produced the most UK Number 1 hit singles, despite Paramor having died 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 soprano Patricia Clarke, who was used in many subsequent selling albums. This became his trademark orchestral signature sound, and was featured on Autumn, Amor Amor, In London, In Love Again, Warm and Willing, My Fair Lady and Moods among others.
