Video of the Week: The Cowsills Can Still Make “The Rain, the Park & Other Things” Sound Fresh

 

The Cowsills released “The Rain, the Park and Other Things” (think “the Flower Girl) in 1967 on MGM Records. Fast forward to 2018. Wish Nails, owner and operator with her husband, Steve, of Dockside Studios in Maurice, Louisiana, wakes up from a dream and believes the Cowsills should record their hit, “The Rain, the Park and Other Things” a cappella, submit it to the Grammies for consideration in the a cappella category and if any group could pull it off it’s The Cowsills. To make a long story short here is the single release of “The Rain, the Park and Other Things – A Cappella” by the Cowsills.

And the ole family band can still pull off a stunning full-band version of their classic, as evidenced by this 2004 Los Angeles performance:
