Notes:
The Cowsills And The Lincoln Park Zoo - The last two songs (Love Theme From Haight Street and If You Gotta Go (Go Now)) are by The Lincoln Park Zoo and not The Cowsills. Just Bill, Bob, Barry and John contribute to this one.
The Cowsills/The Serendipity Singers/The Mindbenders/The Lincoln Park Zoo - The Cowsills do three songs on this one (on side 1 - Could It Be, Let Me Know along with Most Of All and I Know, Know, Know, I'll Never Love, Love, Love), The Serendipity Singers perform three, The Mindbenders do two and Lincoln Park Zoo add two.
The Cowsills - Barbara's voice is added on ths album and the pictures on the cover were taked at Halidon Hall, Newport, Rhode Island. In Japan this was release with a red vinyl version.
We Can Fly - Susan and Paul begin recording with the family on this album. The cover shot was taken at Palisades Park Amusement Park in Palisades Park, New Jersey, but note Paul is missing from this picture !!

Published by Birchmount a part of Quality Records Limited. Listing states it was "27 weeks at the top of the UK albums chart"
Captain Sad And The Ship Of Fools - The clown on the cover was a make-up man. John said he did makeup for the cowardly lion from The Wizard of Oz and taught John to cross one eye.

The Best Of The Cowsills - South KoreaSong list currently unknown. Click here to see the cover of the Korean version.
The Cowsills In Concert - Recorded in Cleveland, Ohio (per Bob), and fine tuned in the studio. Based on newspaper articles, I believe this may have really been in Champaign, Illinois. The photos on the cover were not taken at this particular concert. The photos were staged at the Troubadour in Hollywood while wearing clothes by Genie the Taylor.
II x II - Bob says Travis isn't among the childen on the cover. The group was "various friends of friends."

No art (cover design) credits are given on this album. Click here to see cover.
On My Side - The rock on the cover is somewhere in the Malibu Hills. Bill is missing on this LP.
Nervous Breakthrough - This is Bill's first solo LP after leaving the group. He records the song II x II, just as his siblings did. David Wray is credited with writing the song II x II but Bill really wrote the song and later sold the rights to David.
