On My Side (LP, Album, TP). London Records am I the only one who has a SEVERE pressing defect during the first 30 sec of the title track, "On My Side?" There are no scratches there or anything. Would be a NM copy if it weren't for the defect?
By the time this album was released in 1971, the Newport, RI family act had already peaked, chart-wise, and lost member Bill Cowsill to a solo career (and almost to the Beach Boys), while the band's label, MGM, was having its own structural crisis, which probably didn't help in terms of getting the album promoted.
The Cowsills is the eponymous debut album by American pop group and family, the Cowsills. The first single from the album was "The Rain, The Park & Other Things", which reaching No. 2 on the Billboard pop chart. Similar in style to pop groups The Mamas & the Papas, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, The Monkees and other Bubblegum, AM Pop and sunshine pop-style pop music of the time, the Cowsills produced a family-friendly music produced by an actual family.

Opening track from their 1971 album of the same name. Written by Waddy Wachtel and Judi Pulver, lead vocals by John Cowsill. Something about this album cover (perhaps its desolate setting) or the severe title font and the way The Cowsills are posed has always reminded me of "The Hills Have Have Eyes" (!) Not sure why, it just always has. Great album though, with several haunting harmonies, especially "Heather Says".
