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.”
