On My Side
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 1971, On My Side was the band’s swan song of their original era. Remarkably, The Cowsills were at the peak of their powers, beautifully melding their dynamic vocal ability with an earthier, west coast sound that at times recalls Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Sunflower/Surf’s Up-era Beach Boys.
This first-ever legitimate CD issue of ON MY SIDE—from the ORIGINAL MASTERS—includes THREE BONUS TRACKS, including the non-LP ‘You (In My Mind)’. All sourced from ORIGINAL MASTERS.
The full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes by Cowsills aficionado LISA SUTTON featuring the participation of original band members.

Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook
RECORDINGS FROM 1966-1970
FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
ALL TRACKS FIRST TIME EVER RELEASED!
Having written The Association’s ‘Windy’ while living in David Crosby’s basement, RUTHANN FRIEDMAN remained an intriguing and mysterious figure of ‘60s pop for decades. Until recently her released output consisted of a lone folk album issued in 1970. Unbelievably, many fascinating recordings she created with some of the most revered names in West Coast pop have remained locked away in the vaults… until NOW!
Featuring productions by CURT BOETTCHER, TOMMY LiPUMA, and VAN DYKE PARKS, Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook contains 18 tracks from 1966-1970, focusing on Ruthann’s pop/rock efforts from this era. Musicians include RANDY NEWMAN, RON ELLIOTT of The Beau Brummels, and RUSS GIGUERE from The Association! One listen to this CD and you’ll wonder why Ruthann didn’t have more hits of the magnitude of "Windy.”
Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Ruthann herself!
