Twice Upon a Time is a live album by the American folk music group The Kingston Trio, recorded in 1966 and released in 2008 (see 2008 in music).

History[edit]

After deciding to disband after a final tour, the trio recorded numerous performances in order to release a final live album. Their current label, Decca Records, declined to release Once Upon a Time. It wasn't until 1969 that it was eventually released on Tetragrammaton Records.[1] This compilation consists of recordings from their final performances at the Sahara Tahoe hotel.

The set list is nearly identical to Once Upon a Time. A bonus video in included.
