The Cowsills - Expanded Edition
The Cowsills possessed one of the most pleasing vocal blends in all of popular music. In addition, they created without proper credit the blueprint for countless other singing family bands, including, the TV-created Partridge Family, who were actually based on The Cowsills. Released in 1967, The Cowsills self-titled eponymous album was the perfect long-playing launch pad, blending soft pop buoyancy with psych pop excursions and sunshine pop sensibilities. The thread that tied these elements together was their undeniable vocal dexterity. This first-ever CD issue of The Cowsills from the Original Mono Master includes the Top 10 hit The Rain, The Park And Other Things. Also included are EIGHT Bonus Tracks, including all the material that comprised The Cowsills plus The Lincoln Park Zoo album. All sourced from original masters.

Eventually it comprised his sons Bill, Bob, Barry, John and Paul, seven-year-old daughter Susan and their mother Barbara.

Original Soundtrack - Pufnstuff featuring Jack Wild & Mama Cass
The soundtrack to the film version of Sid & Marty Kroffts gigantic children's tv hit 'HR Pufnstuf'-the programme that introduced psychedelia into the diet of English and American children in the late 60s/ early 70s. It starred of course, the most famous English boy actor of all, Jack Wild (straight from the highly-acclaimed Artful Dodger in Lionel Bart's 1968 film musical smash 'Oliver!'), alongside the great Cass Elliot from the Mamas And The Papas (whose film debut this was), So a unique anglo-american appeal. Pufnstuf was a smash hit in America and is today an institution. Still remembered fondly by those that were touched by it as children and now enjoyed by younger viewers through cable transmissions. Pufnstuf was also a hit here in the uk where like 'The Simpsons' it enjoyed prime airtime slot at 6pm in the evening. The soundtrack written by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel ('Barbarella' 'Happy Days' 'Laverne & Shirley) is a remarkable amalgam of bugglegum, psychedelic instrumentation and joyful knockabout songs including ‘Zap The World’ and the fine Cass solo number ‘Different’ which is exclusive to this record. Pufnstuf is full of great, clever, funny songs sung by Jack Wild, Cass Elliot, Witchiepoo and the cast. Our Price: £9.95

Captain Sad and his Ship Of Fools
The Cowsills possessed one of the most pleasing vocal blends in all of popular music. In addition, they created—without proper credit—the blueprint for countless other singing “family bands,” including, the TV-created Partridge Family, who were actually based on The Cowsills. 1968’s Captain Sad And His Ship Of Fools—the band’s third long player for M-G-M—would prove to be a semi-conceptual album, which perfectly blended the group’s earlier helium-filled soft pop buoyancy with mystical psych pop excursions and sunshine pop sensibilities. The thread that tied these elements together was their undeniable vocal dexterity. This first-ever legitimate CD issue of Captain Sad And His Ship Of Fools includes the Top 10 hit “Indian Lake.” Also included are six bonus tracks, including the non-LP Top 50 single “Poor Baby.” Our Price: £9.95
