NORRIS: People

1-CD with 30-page booklet, 21 tracks. Playing time approx. 78 mns.

Norris - a name that is closely related to the folk and bluegrass movement at the beginning of the 70s. A truly loveable and warm hearted musician, Norris' still well remembered for his appearances at the popular German Neusüdende festival. Living in the neighbouring Netherlands, he brought his guitar, banjo, and dulcimer for these concerts.

Traditonal folk, topical songs and Norris own original material made up his repertoire. All Norris recordings from 'People', Peggy Dare, Girard and Chris - all of them clear proof of true musicianship - are featured on this CD.

All the songs were recorded between 1973 and 1974. Good friends of Norris joined him on these sessions, including Tracy Schwarz (New Lost City Ramblers), Andrew Townend, Chris Cumber and
Mike Paris.

This CD will conjure up wonderful memories of an era that now seems more lighthearted, easier and (maybe) better.

NORRIS   People

Twenty five years ago brings back fond memories. It's like a collage. Inerspersed between gigs were eating in fine restaurants, listening to German folksongs, picnics, flea markets, recording studios, new homes, jam sessions, crying children, and much more.The one thing that seemed to stick in my mind was the attitude of the musicians. They seemed to play for the pleasure of playing and entertaining the public. Records at that time were just an extention of that pleasure. There seemed to be no playing to be discovered. There seemed to be no playing with the idea of hoping there was someone in the audience to put you under a recording contract. I'll always look back on those times and be glad that I was part of it.
Norris

 

Reprint of the original LP liner notes, from January 1974:

I would like to say a few words about my friend Norris in way of introducing his new record 'People'.

First off, Norris Bennett was born in Ocala, Florida. Finished Grammar and High School, went on to College in Illinois and San Francisco. After that he did some rambling around, keeping body and soul together by doing what showed up. Everything from working in a postoffice, moving furniture, dishwashing, teaching, boys counselor, plus other jobs along the way too.

Though he's played music for years, Norris didn't become seriously interested till '61.

In '66, he hit Europe and since that time visited 13 countries, but chose Holland as his favorite where he now lives with his wife, guitar, banjo, autoharp, and dulcimer. As far as I know, no chickens and kids, as yet anyway.

We became friends about 5 years ago, when my wife and I moved to Antwerpen. Since that time, we have done numerous shows together and I have heard his music grow during that time in a way that suggests to me simplicity and truth.

A man simply singing and playing what his heart feels, not straining his gizzard to be commercial or sound like somebody else, just himself. That's why I was pleased when I received my copy of the record and heard again that Norris had stuck with his principles of that simplicity in its honesty. Funny thing simplicity; we start losing it when still quite young and spend a good part of the rest of our lives trying to get it back.

I had planned at this point to say a few words about the record, but got to thinking that the record can speak more for itself and in a better way than I can for it. So your best bet is to sit down and listen to it. You'll hear the simplicity, the honesty, the good choice of songs, good musicians, the sensitivity of Norris' own songs, some to friends, but all of them personal.

I guess in a way, this record is another step, a good step in Norris' sort of kicking around musician kind of life.

So here it is. I hope you like it.
