The Cowsill Family’s father, Bud Cowsill was down to his last dime when their recording of The Rain, The Park and Other Thigs, became a hit.
Those lean days are a long time gone now, and the Cowsills have since released their fourth LP, The Cowsills In Concert (MGM SE4619).
As in most concert albums, this one is a collection of some of their best songs, several of their hit singles, as well as a few pop hits made famous by the Beatles, The Mamas and the Papas, and the Beach Boys.
The whole is a polished, professionally-done performance by the entire Cowsills family, and includes solos by individual members. Their harmony and blending is near-perfect; they are an exciting, entertaining bunch, and they are lucky they can stand all that togetherness.
