Ten songs originally written for The Five Beats. However, when a car crash brought an early end to their career, many of these would end up on the soundtrack to the movie Feelin' Good. The title track here is a new song inspired by the film, while Rock'n'Roll is a stomping track dating back to 1965. The final track, End of Summer, is the quietest moment on the album and featured as the instrumental theme to the 1975 movie, The Second Gun.
GOLDMINE MAGAZINE QUICK PICKS, APRIL 2018
Travis Edward Pike, Feelin' Better
Another archival effort, Feelin' Better revisits songs written for a proposed reunion with Pike's overseas 60s back-up band, The Five Beats. Some songs made it to the score of a cult film called Feelin' Good, and all boast hit potential, thanks to this series of perky, punchy performances by this current combo. Here again, the songs are of a vintage variety, but the arrangements meld both classic and contemporary elements. Pike may not have gotten his due early on, but this belated return makes the wait worthwhile."
