Do you know The Cowsills’ greatest claim to fame?
If you answered “the theme from Love American Style” give yourself partial credit. That’s a pretty good answer, but if you answered “they were the real life Partridge Family,” go to the head of the pop culture class.
The Cowsills were huge in their time, selling millions of copies of singles like “The Rain, The Park, And Other Things,” which you might remember from Dumb and Dumber.
So yeah, pretty cool but that’s not why this record is in my stacks. I like the Cowsills, but I love that album cover by the great Jack Davis. One of these days I’ll own all of the MAD illustrator’s sleeves, and when I do the Jack Davis Album Cover Gallery will be complete, but until then: What, me worry?
Ten bucks is a reasonable price for this one, but you might find it as low as $5 or as high as $20. Whatever you pay you’ll get a great cover and good music, so what are you worried about? Happy hunting.
