With 12 studio albums, four Grammy nominations, and more than 30 million worldwide album sales, acclaimed singer and songwriter Jewel has enjoyed notable career longevity since her entrance onto the scene 25 years ago. Her 1995 debut, Pieces of You, established Jewel as a bold, new voice of authenticity in the pop landscape. It was recorded in Neil Young’s ranch and included Young’s backing band, The Stray Gators. The 12x-platinum-selling album included many Top 10 hits, including “Who Will Save Your Soul,” “Foolish Games,” and the platinum-selling single, “You Were Meant For Me.”
On February 15, Craft Recordings will celebrate Jewel’s landmark debut with a new 2-LP reissue. Keeping with the long-out-of-print original pressing, the new version will include five bonus tracks that were originally released as single B-sides. The lacquers for this edition were cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and the discs were pressed at Memphis Record Pressing. Wile the standard, black vinyl version will be available wherever records are sold, Barnes and Noble will carry an exclusive, limited-edition blue vinyl edition. Meanwhile, there’s also a CD version that was released on January 18 that excludes the bonus tracks.
