Very few people have heard "The Rain, The Park and Other Things"
by the Cowsills because WAYS doesn't want to play the record. They
don't think it is a hit The people at WAYS feel that M-G-M is buying
success for The Cowsills.
M-G-M has indeed spent a quarter of a million dollars in promotion
for The Cowsills. Whether or not this has accounted for the success
of the group is debatable. The Cowsills have real talent, I've seen
and heard them and I can see this easily. My opinion is backed up
by the fact that the record is big in the other major cities of this
state. Greensboro rated the son as number six last week. Raleigh
plays the record about every hour. Last week in one of the national
surveys, "The Rain, The Park and Other Things" was number four.
Nobody can deny the success of this record.
