The Cowsills, a well-known four-brother singing group from Middletown, have made their first recording. The record, which features two songs written by Bill Cowsill, 17, and Bob Cowsill, 16, was releasted by Joda Records last Friday.

The two older Cowsills, and their brothers Barry, 11, and John, 9, have been performing professionally together for about a year. The two older brothers were well known as folk singers for seven years before their younger brothers joined the group. They are sons of Mr. and Mrs. William Cowsill of 641 Indian Ave.

Featured on the new single are "All I Really Want To Be Is Me" and "And the Next Day." The brothers will write all of their own songs for recording, according to their father, who manages them.

The boys appeared on the nationally televised Today Show last month and have scheduled concerts at Princeton and Yale Universities this month. While in Newport, they appear at Muenchinger-King Hotel.

The new recording will be introduced by the boys Oct. 30 on Channel 12 television show "Wing Ding."
