Paul Levinson Twice Upon A Rhyme
Vinyl LP. Salvation Records
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 19 September 2012
Here’s an incredibly limited (only 50 copies!) reissue of Paul Levinson’s sought-after pop rarity from 1972, Twice Upon A Rhyme, which comes lovingly packaged in a brand new screenprinted sleeve design, with inserts containing lyrics and further information. Very lovely package.
The music itself mixes the psychedelic pop of the ‘60s, a dash of Simon & Garfunkel and some expansive and imaginative arrangements which recall the Beach Boys or even Burt Bacharach in places. There’s a real warmth and love running through these cuts, which were all recorded over period of ‘69 to ‘71 in various New York studios and the quality of the recordings and arrangements is consistently very high. It’s clearly a labour of love and the tones and hooks captured still sound appealing, smooth and soulful. It’s no surprise this is such a sought-after lost gem - if you want one then I reckon it’s a now or never situation with a pressing this small.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
