Otherworld Cottage Posts 7-Part Harvey Kubernik - Travis Edward Pike Audio Interview for Fans and Bloggers
February 08, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsFebruary 8, 2016 - Otherworld Cotttage is offering free access to the entire 67 minute online Kubernik – Pike mp3 audio interview, broken down into 7 parts to make it easier for bloggers to link to or copy to their web pages. The subject is the fresh, 2015 BookBaby release of Pike's book, "Odd Tales and Wonders: 1964 - 1974 A Decade of Performance."
As you might expect when former West Coast Director of A&R for MCA Records, author, journalist, and pop music historian Harvey Kubernik talked to singer, songwriter, publisher, and entrepreneur Travis Edward Pike about that decade, they went beyond the pages to talk about living during the social revolution of the sixties, Pike's newly released back catalogue, and scheduled new spring album release "Outside the Box." And Harvey even spent some time with Travis' youngest brother, multi-instrumentalist and recording artist, Adam Pike, who co-produced, co-arranged, recorded, and mastered Travis' entire collection, while dealing with MS.
Last month, Kubernik reported, "One of the pleasures in my music and literary journey has been the ability to spot talent and acknowledge it. As a former A&R man for MCA Records, or as a journalist and author, I've been watching Pike's career for decades, while pursuing my own endeavors on the page and internet … Travis Pike is an overlooked, but fascinating rock 'n' roll story, which is the reason that, in the middle of working on my own books and television appearances, I spend time with him."
Which is saying quite a lot, since last year alone, Kubernik penned the books "Leonard Cohen, Everybody Knows," "Neal Young: Heart of Gold," and, with his brother Kenneth Kubernik, penned and captioned the award-winning photo book "Big Shots: Rock Legends & Hollywood Icons: Through the Lens of Guy Webster," published by Insight Editions.
Kubernik also authored the current cover story on Bob Dylan and "The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12." in Record Collector News magazine, and Chris O'Leary, in his book "Rebel Rebel: All the Songs of David Bowie from '64 to '76," a book on Bowie, published by Zero Books in 2015, cites Kubernik in his text for his research role for Bowie's "Young Americans" album. And you'll find much more posted on Kubernik's Korner.
And incidentally, Travis Edward Pike is now an interview subject in Kubernik's work in progress, "1967 A Complete Rock History of the Summer of Love" that Sterling will publish in very early 2017.
