"The packaging is exquisite, from the textured box to the highest quality graphics and paper on cardboard jackets. All is absolutely first-rate as are the pressings. 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's music and QRP delivers it. Kevin Gray's mastering is equally superb. ... I was surprised how easily and pleasurable it was to go through the whole box numerous times before writing it up. The sonics throughout are superb ..." Music = 9/10; Sound = 9/10 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com, January 24, 2013. To read Fremer's full review, click here: http://tinyurl.com/bj8rkf7

"As you might expect, (the records) sound excellent. ... This set embodies everything this blog believes in passionately. Holding the music in your hands. A lifetime of listening pleasure from the music is massively enhanced by the pleasure of owning a physical object. The ritual of pulling out the record you want to listen to from a box set, opening the thick gatefold jackets and placing the spotless, heavyweight vinyl record on the turntable platter, is of great value to many - convenience aside, how could a mouse-click on a computer or the swipe of your thumb on your 'smart phone' ever hope to compete when it comes to listening to music?" - Review of the Norah Jones Vinyl Collection by Paul Sinclair, SuperDeluxeEdition.com, January 2013

Norah Jones is the rare artist who has combined widespread critical acclaim with immense commercial success, winning nine Grammy Awards and selling 40 million albums in just a decade, while collaborating with artists from across the spectrum from jazz to hip hop, rock to country. Her pitch-perfect voice combined with her choice of the finest musicians along with top-flight producers such as Arif Mardin, Danger Mouse and Jacquire King have made her releases go-to demonstration discs for audiophile stereo systems. Now ten years into her already impressive career, she is releasing her fifth studio album Little Broken Hearts on May 1, 2012, produced by and co-written with five-time Producer of the Year Grammy nominee Danger Mouse, and to celebrate, Blue Note Records and Analogue Productions are collaborating to re-issue her entire catalog in limited edition audiophile LP and SACD editions.

The LP editions of the five albums — 2002's Come Away With Me, 2004's Feels Like Home, 2007's Not Too Late, 2009's The Fall and Norah's new album Little Broken Hearts — have all been re-mastered from the original sources by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. The LPs are pressed on 200 Gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings (fast gaining popular consensus as the best pressing plant in the world) and, keeping with Analogue Productions' standards, they're packaged in heavy cardboard stock, tip-on, old-school gatefold sleeves.

In addition to the individual releases, Analogue and Blue Note have produced this limited edition vinyl box set comprising all five titles plus a bonus album titled 
Covers, exclusive in LP format to this box set only. Covers includes 10 rare or unreleased interpretations of classics recorded throughout Norah's career. Artists covered include Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Horace Silver, Wilco and more. The box set is wrapped in a textured paper that feels like linen.

Easy 5 Star Rating

Reviewer: Cold Shot
The vinyl pressings were flat & quiet. The sonics are an easy 5 Star rating. I wasn't a big Norah Jones fan before pulling the trigger on these audiophile quality recordings. I didn't fully appreciate her talent until I bought the vinyl box set. Highly recommended even if you're just a casual fan.


Beautifully presented, shame that there were clicks

The box set arrived in perfect condition cosmetically. I was a bit disappointed that the discs had a lot of clicks and pops upon initial listening. I had to wash each LP twice on my VPI record cleaner before the noise was gone. Sound quality is indeed very high and worth the premium.


Very good pressings and sound quality but...

Sound quality wise, there's nothing to say, it sounds absolutely gorgeous, very spacious, natural sounding (although, as I was listening to Come Away with me earlier on, it sounded a little digital to my ears, now it seems to have gone), a real treat for the ears! The one thing I want to complain about is although the covers are of very high quality, it is a bit of a shame that for the premium that we pay, we still get a barcode as well as an ugly FBI logo on the back of each cover. I realise i'm being picky, but that would have been a nice gesture given the expensive price of the pack. You buy the whole product, and the big gorgeous artwork is what you buy as well.

But if you love Norah Jones' music, you're in for a treat!


Set is the BEST ever!!!
