I feel like I stumbled onto a hidden museum that's been lost or forgotten.

Who's Fred?

He's the guy Regina gave the tape to. He was in the music business and she hoped he would promote her music. Turns out he did't.

So years later he put the tape on ebay.

Provenance of Regina Spektor 1999 Demo Cassette.

In 1999 I had a Russian girlfriend. Irina's mom, Hinya, was friends with Regina Spektor's mom so when Regina wanted to talk to people with music business experience, Hinya mentioned my name. I had been in Black Velvet Flag, a band with an indie record deal in the mid 1990s. Regina called me up and I told her everything I knew about the record biz, then she sent me the tape. After listening to it a couple of times I realized that she had tremendous talent at making music that wasn't my taste. I put the tape away, knowing that someday someone was going to be very interested in it.

Now it's yours. Enjoy!

Thank You to: Mama and Papa-there are no words, only kisses. Babooshkas, Dedooshkas, Bear, Mous, Roza, Olgs, Colleen, Arti, Anna, and all my other friends and family-too numerous to mention, and too wonderful to attempt and describe (you know who you are...) Sam and Sonia- giving love and music, most kindest gifts of all. Evgenia little Petrov piano, wherever you are. Purchase College People- Professors Joe Ferry, James EcElwaine, Dary John Mizele, Todd Coolman, Charles Blenzig, Alyson Bellnick, and Lydia Popelyash and many more teachers, staff, and off course students, who happen to rock (very hard). Sidewalk Caffe. Nick Szatmari-for lending a bass. David Panarelli, Eric Helmuth-for kindly helping a little disc achieve its shrink-wrapped destiny. Jasyn Conklin, Keith Abrams. Richie-for your talent, dedication, and inspiring work ethic. Chris-for your musicality and strings over wood. I was so lucky to work with you both. Anderson, mermaids, moon, mozart, snow, little prince... they make me happy, singing does too, many other things also. One who paints sunsets, has no name, gives 11:11... and since, no matter how many times I say it, I'll still be in debt, might as well one more- thank you...
