The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes.
A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.
Background: Norah Jones’ 2002 debut, Come Away With Me, was a monster smash, reaching #1 on the album charts in a half a dozen countries and selling more than ten million copies in the U.S. alone.
The album was also a hit with critics.
Norah Jones’ debut on Blue Note is a mellow, acoustic pop affair with soul and country overtones, immaculately produced by the great Arif Mardin. (It’s pretty much an open secret that the 22-year-old vocalist and pianist is the daughter of Ravi Shankar.) Jones 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 Wollesen; 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. …While the mood of this record stagnates after a few songs, it does give a strong indication of Jones’ alluring talents.
About Clarity vinyl: In 2008, Classic Records determined that magnetic particles in regular black vinyl were compromising playback results. This was due to trace metal contained in the carbon black that was added to the vinyl during manufacture. Classic worked with Kenan, a PVC manufacturer, to produce a proprietary vinyl compound that did not use carbon black, and thus did not contain these distortion-causing magnetic elements.
The resulting vinyl compound was called Clarity vinyl, and Classic intended to eventually produce all of their titles using this new vinyl. Unfortunately, the company went out of business after only a few titles had been produced this way, and Classic’s Clarity pressings, particularly those pressed at 45 RPM, are quite hard to find today.
