"Paul Levinson's It's Real Life is a page-turning exploration into that multiverse known as rock and roll. But it is much more than a marvelous adventure narrated by a master storyteller...it is also an exquisite meditation on the very nature of alternate history." -- Jack Dann, The Fiction Writer's Guide to Alternate History

Sir! "Twice Upon a Rhyme" is very good album we marked as gem from the great past. I`m glad to hear about reissue of this gread creation. And I Have only question: who told in russian in the beginning of "Today Is Just Like You"? Greetings from Moscow

Great to have your comment here, VaTage! I'm glad you like Twice Upon a Rhyme - I put up a link to it on my Facebook music page - http://www.facebook.com/PaulLevinsonMusic - scroll down to the early December listings.

Sasha Humek was speaking in Russian at the beginning of "Today Is Just Like". Boris Midney (who played saxophone and clarinet on the album) brought Sasha into the studio, because we needed a second violin player (to play along with Israel Esquenazi, who also played violin on the album). I haven't been in touch with Sasha since 1972 - if you ever get an email address for him, please let me know!
