Hurricane Sandy happened half a country away which makes it difficult to wrap your mind around the devastating clean up of Sandy's destruction, until you see pictures like this.

This is what the Norton Records Warehouse in Brooklyn looks like. They have lost almost all of their stock and archival material in the storm and they are asking for our financial help if they are to continue.

The name Norton might not ring some bells right away, if you are not someone to study labels on your records, but these names will. Norton is the masters of re-issuing lost compilations of garage rock as well as Rockabilly Gods. Here is just a partial list of their artists:  Hasil Adkins, Link Wray, A-Bones, Flat Duo Jets, Charlie Feathers, Flaming Groovies, Big Star, Andre Williams, Rudy Ray Moore, Sun Ra, Black Lips, 5,6,7,8's, Legendary Stardust Cowboy, and much more.
