"The entire project from the songs to the superb recorded sound and packaging just reeks of good taste. And it couldn't have come cheaply. The label or someone made a major financial investment in an unknown's debut album. The investment paid off, as the album sold more than 26 million copies and won numerous awards. It wasn't that much of a risk, really. Jones' amalgam of jazz, country, folk and a touch of rock produced something new and highly attractive to a wide demographic. ... The records coming out of QRP are definitely living up to the pressing plant's early promise. This kind of drop dead black quiet is precisely what's required for Jones' music and QRP delivers it. Kevin Gray's mastering is equally superb." — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com, January 24, 2013. To read Fremer's full review, click here: http://tinyurl.com/bj8rkf7

"The original CD of Come Away With Me was never too bad on the ears, but (on the QRP pressing) the warmth and detail from the clean, flat vinyl shines through." — Review of the Norah Jones Vinyl Collection by Paul Sinclair, Superdeluxeedition.com

The winner of eight 2003 Grammys, Come Away With Me was Norah Jones’ breakthrough triumph. Now Jones’ mellow, soul-and-country tinged music gets the richly-deserved Analogue Productions treatment on 200-gram, super-silent vinyl! Hits like the signature cut of this record "Don’t Know Why," have never sounded clearer and more sensual. Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re sitting in the recording studio, watching the magic happen. Jones’ debut on Blue Note was immaculately produced by the great Arif Mardin. Jones, the the daughter of Ravi Shankar, is not quite a jazz singer, but she is joined by some highly regarded jazz talent: guitarists Adam Levy, Adam Rogers, Tony Scherr, Bill Frisell, and Kevin Breit; drummers Brian Blade, Dan Rieser, and Kenny Wolleson; organist Sam Yahel; accordionist Rob Burger; and violinist Jenny Scheinman. Her regular guitarist and bassist, Jesse Harris and Lee Alexander, respectively, play on every track and also serve as the chief songwriters. Both have a gift for melody, simple yet elegant progressions, and evocative lyrics.

First off, I would just like to thank Acoustic Sounds for providing this review forum section in their web site. They allow all reviews to be posted here, whether good or bad. I commend them for that. No other online dealer provides this service that I know of. On to the Norah Jones review: Has anyone else noticed distortion in the left channel of this pressing? Perhaps I received a bad copy. I normally love Analogue Productions offerings but this particular pressing is unacceptable. As Steven H. described in the previous review this vocal was recorded a bit hot, perhaps a bit TOO hot thus causing the distortion. Shouldn't this have been addressed in the re-mastering process? Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio mastered this disk. Any thoughts? Unfortunately I cannot return this vinyl since it is past the thirty day return period... I am hoping that the DSD version will have fixed this problem. The high quality jacket gets 5 stars. Vinyl only gets 4 stars.


Not as good as the Classic Records release.

I love the Come Away With Me title by Norah Jones. I heard her live performance on NPR radio months before she became famous. I have this title in CD and LP (Classic Records) as well as the Norah Jones Live (at the House of Blues) DVD.

I have played the Classic Records LP over a hundred times. Although her voice is recorded a bit hot (raw) at times the dynamics, musicality, and low level detail on the recording are impressive.

Since my LP copy was getting a bit worn, I took a chance on the Analog Productions reissue.

Oh... From the first drop of the needle drop I sensed that something was not right. Her voice was moved forward and the musical instruments pushed into the background. The raw edge of her voice was tamed and as a result there was a corresponding loss of low level detail and harmonics in the music. The life was squeezed out of the music to make everything as un-offending as possible.

The out-of-print Classic Records version is much better, ;-{.


Great pressing

QRP 200g pressings seem to be consistently well done and very quiet, and this is no exception. Add to that some flawless engineering and you have an opportunity to listen to vocals that have a clarity and presence that are at times stunning. Beautifully executed record.


QRP does it again

Bought this recently on a recommendation and not having heard any of Norah's music. Glad I did. Amazing music and another stellar pressing from Quality Record Pressings. A must own.


Not your parents vinyl!

I’m a genuine son of baby boomers and recently inherited my parents entire vinyl collection for which I’m truly grateful. My parents had music playing in the house my entire home life (same turntable and stylus even!) I got VERY much used to the sound of vinyl. Alas came the digital era that brought with it the convenience of CD’s and MP3’s. And wow, no more pops and scratches! So it was set in my mind forever (so I thought) that the clarity of digital would always win out over the pops and scratches of vinyl. Fast forward to today. Being a music lover I decided to break down and buy a new turntable and order some new vinyl. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? SERIOUSLY, ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? This CAN’T by vinyl, not what I was used to hearing! Crystal clear as a bell! NOT what I was expecting at all. I thought pops and scratches were just something you had to deal with and get used too. Come Away With Me sounds amazing compared to what I was brought up hearing.


Excellent release!

I found this pressing to be better than the Classic Records version from a few years back. Surfaces are dead quiet. Another great Analogue Productions LP. Really nicely done!

I briefly compared this to the previous 200 grams Classic Records version. For me the singer has a more solid and substantial presence now as compared to the thinner sounding vocals on the Classic Records version. Subtle sonic details like the brush hitting the cymbals are more obvious, and the bass notes are a tad more substantial. The record plays dead silent too. It's a great sounding record.


Beautifully done

Very quiet vinyl... pressed slightly off-center

Reviewer: Mika Waller
I want to give this LP 5 stars, but I simply cannot wholeheartedly endorse an "audiophile" LP that is pressed slightly off-center. I realize that vinyl is an imperfect medium, but I feel that manufacturers can and *should* implement better controls for this critical prameter. In certain passages, especially on the last two tracs of Side 1, I can hear the resulting pitch instability. It's subtle, but it's there. In all other respects, this LP is a resounding success. The vinyl surfaces are incredibly quiet, and the remastering is superb. I own both the new Analog Productions the Classic Records pressings of this title, and had an opportunity to compare the two recently. The Analog Productions pressing has a leaner, more focussed sound with slightly greater trebel emphasis. The Classic Records pressing is a bit smoother, rounder, and fuller, albeit less dynamic. If you crave audio detial, you will love this new Analog Productions LP.
