DALLAS - A sock-it-to-me start for The 1968 State Fair of Texas is assured by the coming of the Cowsills - six singing, swinging brothers, a sister a mother and a father.
It's fitting that the nation's foremost musical family of the moment will be in Dallas to help the world's biggest state fair launch its Oct. 5:30 Salute to America '68. The Cowsills will present two free performances daily Oct. 5 through 8(?? hard to read) at 5:30 p.m. and at 8 p.m. on the outdoor Mobil Stage.
And judging by the record - or the records - so far, the big fair grounds will be hard pressed to hold the crowds. The Cowsills offer a distinctive mixture of family wholesomeness with songs which range from "hard rock" and "hot soul" through country and Western to folk music. They have won their following with hits like "The Rain, the Park and Other Things," "We Can Fly" and their newest, "Indian lake," now a top 10 seller.
