Hair’s title song was turned into a hit (though not a big one around here) by The Cowsills – the most unlikely match since Jackie Kennedy married Onassis.
The Cowsills’ apple-pie wholesome, family sing-along image made a ludicrous contrast to the frankly sensual ethos of Hair’s love children.
Yes the record, a repulsively coy effect, sold a lot of copies nation-wide.
As no doubt The Cowsills In concert (MGM Se 4619) will too. A mild concert run-through of other people’s music (a little rock, a little folk, a little shuck) plus the studio-recorded hit single, this album shows all the spirit of a eunch.
