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

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

Lost Soul Singles & Demos 1966-1967 + Bonus LP 1974
LOST SOUL is a package to draw in and collect together previously lost and loose elements from the career of british blue eyed soul singer/songwriter Jackie Lomax.Jackie Lomax was the lead vocalist and bass player with The Undertakers, a stomping Merseybeat outfit of the mid 1960's. At the end of 1965 Jackie joined an Anglo American line-up playing R&Bcalled The Lost Souls, with a name change in 1966 to Lomax Alliance.Brian Epstein came to New York and offered to manage Jackie Lomax as a solo artist but ended up signing the band. Tracks were recorded in New York and London for a single and an album, produced by John Simon. Only the single got released in the Uk, and a different single under a different name in the US , Epsteins death curtailing further action for the band, but Lomax squeezed out a further solo single.Lomax continued his Beatle associations through signing as a writer / artist to Apple in 1968. Following several releases Lomax recorded with blues outfit Heavy Jelly in 1970, then released two solo albums through Warners upon a return to the US.At the end of 1973, Jackie Lomax joined Badger, a previously prog rock band originally formed by ex-Yes keyboard player Tony Kaye, and proceeded to turn them into his type of R&B/soul band. The band became a vehicle for his songs and singing and they released one excellent LP, White Lady, in 1974. In more recent times Lomax has kept busy as a singer and guitarist for hire.
