Norrie Paramor (born Norman William Paramor; 15 May 1914 – 9 September 1979) was a British record producer, composer, arranger and orchestral conductor. He is best known for his work with Cliff Richard and the Shadows, having steered their early career—producing and arranging most of their material from the late 1950s to the mid 1960s.
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 Frank Ifield 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's death 18 years earlier.
