Norman ‘Hurricane’ Smith was the first recording engineer to work with The Beatles and was responsible for their entire Parlophone output from their 1962 audition for George Martin through to Rubber Soul in 1965. His production and engineering credits include Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, Little Richard and Barclay James Harvest with far too many more to name.
‘Hurricane Smith’ made the transition from producer/ engineer to solo recording artist with the singles “Don’t Let It Die” and the phenomenal hit “Oh Babe, What Would You Say”, which reached number one in the U.S.A. charts.
Norman now returns with his album “From Me To You “. He lends his distinctive voice to huge hits such as the title track as well as the classic “Englishmen In New York” and under the watchful eye of his son and producer Nick Smith; Norman has created a truly collectable album.
The sleeve notes include never before seen photos of Norman and The Beatles, messages from David, Nick and Richard of Pink Floyd and a personal tribute from Sir Paul McCartney. The album also contains in-depth interviews in which ‘Hurricane’ discusses his time with The Beatles, Pink Floyd and chapters of his remarkable musical career.
A remarkable album from a remarkable musical talent!!
