If you know anyone who claims that they don't like poetry, you should get them this album so they can hear the magic that you already see on the page.For more info, to read the amazing reviews, or to purchase the album, visit GPRRecords.com."Poetic License" is available for purchase and preview on iTunes. Here's a link to Part 1 of the album: http://bit.ly/poeticlicense_itunesMore info:Said Trav S.D. on his blog Travalanche:"Three of my favorite poems happen to occur all in a row: Poe’s Annabel Lee, Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and Tennyson’s Ulysses — it’s like back-to-back hits on the poetry Top 40. Furthermore, the indiscriminate mix of bold-faced names and literary classics produces more than usual interest. Florence Henderson reads Longfellow! Barbara Feldon reads Margaret Atwood! And a long list of others: Christine Baranksi, Jason Alexander, Cynthia Nixon, Charles Busch, Michael York, JoBeth Williams, Paul Provenza, Richard Thomas, Kate Mulgrew, etc etc etc."More Links:Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/gprrecordsFacebook: http://bit.ly/PoeticLicenseFanPageWeb Site:http://bit.ly/gprrecords
