Norton Records is one of the finest — if not THE finest — record labels in business today. They just celebrated their 30th anniversary in Brooklyn last year and now, post-Sandy, they’re struggling to salvage as much of their destroyed stock as they can after their warehouse was hit hard by flooding.
Norton is famous for their re-issues and I can still remember the first record of theirs I picked up in Montreal about 10 years ago: Here Are The Sonics. Reading the liner notes calling it “the first punk record” totally gave me chills.
