Processing file: [02. Norah Jones - I've Got To See You Again (Alternate Version – The Allaire Sessions).aucdtect] Now, 20 years later, Norah decided to release the Allaire version of the album. “It’s been a bit like time traveling to some alternate universe of the album that nobody ever heard,” she says. “When I approached Craig to tell him about it, he suggested we ask Tony Maserati to ‘balance’ the recordings. This brought my vocal to the front more and I can finally hear my little 22-year-old self trying new things and fitting into the music around me just fine. Re-visiting these sessions after listening to them only once in the last 20 years has been a lovely surprise. I’m so glad to finally re-unite with Craig and get a chance to finish what we started together. I learned a lot from him, and I always think of that time upstate as a sort of dreamy fantasy, and I still get that feeling when I listen to these recordings.”The very same youtuber mentioned it's hard to tell the difference but there are a few differences between the two.

The album’s blend of jazz, blues, country, folk and pop – had an enormous appeal and Come Away With Me has, to date, sold nearly 30 million copies, and has garnered multiple awards, including eight Grammys. When it comes to the Piano sound. it's clear which has more realistic sound. AP is clear winner on this part. Like a vocal. the piano on AP has a rich and textured bass. Jesus, I'm just having the first playthrough now, just finished "Come Away With Me" on the first original record. I only have a 2015 European BlueNote to compare it to, but this is a really really wonderful pressing. It's Pallas, so I had high expectations, but it's the mastering mix I think that really transcends it, they've done an amazing job. The voices and mids on strings and even lower notes on the double bass are more prominent, it's not in your face in any way, it's just so beautifully balanced, and feels even more personal than my previous copy (which I still thought was pretty damn good for a standard pressing). 45 RMP Audiophile said in his review he thought this copy was more analytical than the Analogue Productions which I found interesting. It is incredibly precise but still sounds wonderfully musical.I've never been a fan of Norah Jones. Just a few months ago, I reluctantly obtained AP edition of this album. Before re-selling, I played the album and found SQ amazing. So kept it under my wings. anniversary edition sounds great. especially considering the price. As one youtuber described it is more "analytical" and at the same time it is more relaxed. What we are talking about here is quality, with a capital ‘Q’ – examples that come to mind might include the cut of a Saville Row suit, the brilliance of a Tiffany diamond, or the craftsmanship of the burr walnut dash and hand-stitched leather trim in a Bentley motor car.

Processing file: [05. Norah Jones - Picture In A Frame (Alternate Mix - The Allaire Sessions).aucdtect] Just getting to the demos, these belong on an album. She was so talented from the off. The entire bonus material is stellar. There is a discernable reduction in SQ on the final record of the Allaire Sessions, but it's by no means bad, just not as impressive as the first 3 records, imagine they are digital source.


I assum that "analytical" feature of 20th anniversary could be the result that it may cut peak range on high and bottom. Processing file: [06. Norah Jones - Nightingale (Alternate Version – The Allaire Sessions).aucdtect]
