Norton Records


Norton Records, a New York City based independent record label founded by musicians Miriam Linna and Billy Miller, maintains a focus on primitive, retro rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, garage punk, garage rock, lounge music and R&B. In 1986, when the couple published an article about West Virginia guitarist Hasil Adkins, the response was so intense that Linna and Miller decided to form a record label to reissue his music. They named their company after Ed Norton, Art Carney's character on The Honeymooners. Adkins had recorded about 15 singles in the 50s, but many had never been released or collected on an LP. "We made 500 copies and prayed that it would sell", recalled Linna.
Along with previously unreleased discoveries, Linna and Miller have successfully reissued many other obscurities and classics from the 1950s and 60s and their extensive catalog includes such talents as King Coleman, Roy Loney, Gene Vincent, Link Wray, etc.
