New York State of Mind - Are there Two Versions?
Does anybody know whether there are multiple versions of this song (recorded, not live)? I was listening to this song this morning on the Radio (104.3 here in NY) and it hit me that, when I was a child listening to this song, it did not sound exactly the same as the version that was playing. The version that I know is distinctive in a few ways, but one particular is, at the end of the song, when Billy sings "cuz I'm in" (and then there is a pause)...in the version I remember, there is a saxophone that mimics the notes he just sang...then he says "I'm in a Neeeeeew Yooooork" (and again, the sax mimics his notes). In the version I heard this morning, there is no sax after he sings "cuz I'm in". I checked online, and it seems like there is only one version, the Turnstiles version. I know my family owned the Turnstiles record (vinyl) when I was younger, but I no longer have it (nor do I own a record player, even if I did).
