1964-1974: A DECADE OF ODD TALES AND WONDERS

In 1963, Pike wrote the title song for 1964's Demo Derby, a 28-minute movie that played on thousands of screens across the U.S.A. with the Beatles Hard Day's Night. He wrote ten for the 1966 Boston-based feature film Feelin' Good, performed eight of them on-screen, and in 1973, the music to his song "End of Summer" underscored The Second Gun, a Golden Globe nomination for Best Documentary of 1973, investigating the assassination of Robert Kennedy.

This new 374 page memoir of Travis Edward Pike's early career as a singer-songwriter features more than 170 photos and artifacts, the State Records vinyl 45 release Shindig! magazine named as the 3rd Best Single of 2017, session notes and lyrics from all the CDs shown on the cover, and an Afterword by music and pop culture author Harvey Kubernik, who calls it "One of the most unique musical journey's I've ever read."
