Album Notes
Dubbed the "American Pop Enya" by the Japanese press, this is the long-lost debut album of million-selling songwriter Cara Jones. Originally released in Japan in 1994 on an independent label, the first pressing sold out of stores across that country in record time.

(check out the in-store displays at Tower Records and Virgin Megastore in Tokyo -- )

Since its disappearance from the CD store shelves, the album has been in high demand in Japan. Now, for the first time, it is available in its original form. Quite different from later works, this early album has an electronica/ambient bent, combining whispy, soothing vocals with beats and synths to create an unusual and unique sound. The songwriting is pure singer-songwriter, and because the heart of the artist lies in the ballad, she had to include "I Thought I Was Over You", which was picked by Begin magazine as the #2 best love song of the season.

The opening track, "Far Away", went to #31 on the Tokio Hot 100 chart, and can still be heard in soundtracks, on TV shows, and on radio across the country. Cara's cover of the classic "Those Were The Days" also charted in the Top 40.

One music journalist said: "When Different Skies came out, people raved over her voice -- a high, clear voice that soared, rather than sang, as if dancing across the sky. And the sound -- a fresh, compelling sound that draws you in. The album was praised in the press as one which, by virtue of that voice and that sound, is relaxing and refreshing at the same time."
