TWO SONGS FROM LONG-GRIN
Travis Pike was sixteen when he wrote The Red-backed, Scaly, Black-bellied, Tusked, Bat-winged Dragon title song for his original animated musical fantasy. Today, the cartoon title song is no longer appropriate for his greatly-expanded, live-action/CGI theatrical series in development, but the song had a good run inn the sixties as one of Travis Pike's Tea Party's most popular songs in their live performances, and a 1984 recording of it is now on Pike's Stories in Song and Reconstructed Coffeehouse Blues CDs (see below).
This recording of "The Drinking Song." enthusiastically performed by Owen, Mastersinger of Westles (shown left as drawn in the early cartoon version) is from that same 1984 session. In Long-Grin, Part One, Princess Gwyn's Nuptials, King Galowyn requests a drinking song for his guests on the feast night prior to the morrow's contests in which a champion will win the hand of his daughter, and sole heir, Princess Gwyn. Owen, during each chorus sung by the guests, enjoys his well-deserved reputation -- as a notorious lush, passes out, and is, alas, unceremoniously expelled from the feast hall.
The image (left) is from a 1990 Hank Mayo sketch when he was creating the special effects storyboard for Long-Grin. In the story, Aver, a young noblewoman may marry for love, but Princess Gwyn must marry whomever wins the contest for “the greatest warrior in the Three Kingdoms,” which makes her feel more broodmare than princess. Their song, “Love Is” reveals their very different prospects. (These 1984 sessions were arranged by David Carr, recorded by Philip Moores and performed by Mary Moyers, Julie Long, David Carr, Michael Moores, Lonnie Snyder, and, of course, Travis Pike.)

Listen to "IN THIS PLACE," choir, procession and dance omitted from MYSTICAL ENCOUNTER
WARNING! "IN This Place" is introduced by a masked choir, followed by a procession as Fiona leads Laura's pony cart to the megalithic shrine where, representing the fertility goddess, she dismounts as the music changes from the processional to her ever-accelerating, ever-more erotic dance, directed at the buckskin-draped, solitary central upright stone, crowned with an antlered headdress, representing the fertilty god, and only ending when she finally collapses, naked, surrendering herself to the monolith. This piece will certainly be in the movie, but being rather long, and almost entirely instrumental is not included on the Mystical Encounter songs from Changeling's Return CD. Click the image (left), to buy the download.

Listen to "PEEPING TOM," the controversial song also omitted from MYSTICAL ENCOUNTER
WARNING! "Peeping Tom" underscores a chase sequence inspired by Laurel's erotic, torch-lit, dance in Changeling's Return. It remains in the screenplay and will likely remain in the movie, but within the story there is concern that the song, out of context, might seem to celebrate violent, misogynistic behavior, and therefore it is cut from Mystical Encounter in the story (and also from the album currently in release). Labeled EXPLICIT, not for its language, but for its brutish content, it is posted here, especially for readers, filmmakers, and collectors familiar with the section of Changeling's Return, "His Secrets All Revealed."

Listen to "DON'T YOU CARE AT ALL" with its simulated Newscast introduction.
I met my first California fan, Chuck Monda, in 1968, when he was a student at Mount SAC. In 1971, Chuck was drafted and sent to Vietnam, where this photo was taken. Chuck returned safely, is still one of my best friends, and I happily dedicate this 2014 recording of my Vietnam Era song, complete with helicopter gunships, jets, rockets, napalm, and a simulated newscast opening, accurately reflecting the period's sonic imagery, to Chuck and all who served in that conflict. Realizing the authentic-sounding newscast might do a “War of the Worlds” on today’s listeners, I released the song on the Reconstructed Coffeehouse Blues album without it. This single includes that simulated newscast. To buy the download, click Chuck's photo, (left).

"An award-winning audiobook by a California-based storyteller, this clever fairy tale is told entirely in narrative rhyme. The language is rich and the presentation is exhilarating . . ."

"It sounds like a cross between "The Reluctant Dragon" and "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," with a game of Dungeons and Dragons thrown into the mix. Pike's imaginative narration harkens to a medieval storyteller, which REALLY makes this piece work."

"Pike's superb skill as a storyteller elevates the tale to a rare level.  The rich language and Pike's voice variations paint vivid pictures in the listener's mind . . . an outstanding choice for school and public library collections."
