Cave Hollywood Posts Harvey Kubernik's Interview, "Travis Pike's Career Re-launch Celebrates the Fiftieth Anniversary of the 1967 Summer of Love."
It's not surprising that, with all the excitement generated by the overseas recordings and airplay, an enterprising American DeeJay would step forward and invite Travis to appear on his program – and one did. Tonight, at 9:00 pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time, Gary Schneider will be talking to Travis and playing a number of Travis' recent recordings on his two-hour "Open Mynd Excursion" show on Luxuria Radio. Few, if any, of tonight's recordings of Travis singing the original songs that made him a popular concert draw in his native New England, have ever been broadcast on American radio. In fact, apart from some rehearsals, none had ever been recorded for release to the public until Travis began recording them with his brother, Adam, in 2013. Should you miss tonight's broadcast, the good news is, it will be posted online, so you will be able to tune to the show at a time more convenient for you. Of course, for those tuning in to the live show, the chat room will be open, and historically, Gary manages, somehow, to keep an eye on it, all through the show.
Kubernik's comprehensive Cave Hollywood interview also discusses Pike's approach to his music, his favorite and most memorable live performances from the sixties, and even touches on Pike's "Changeling's Return," the current title of his proposed movie musical, first conceived in the seventies, then recorded in the progressive rock style popular in the mid-eighties. The story, set in the English Midlands and the supernatural realm of Morningstone, is about an American rock star, whose out-of-body experience, triggers a sudden and profound commitment to the environment, and a dramatic change in his music, its lyrical content, and purpose. Pike's book, "Changeling's Return," introduced by still another Harvey Kubernik interview, presents the entire screenplay, and features a fascinating section Pike calls "His Secrets All Revealed" about its underlying European folklore, mythology, and the supernatural. Its re-mastered soundtrack album, "Mystical Encounter (Songs from Changeling's Return)," is currently sold online and is available through select brick and mortar stores worldwide.
