The real-life inspiration behind the hit television series 'The Partridge Family,' The Cowsills was one of the biggest pop acts of the late '60s. Upon signing with MGM in 1967, The Cowsills, with their lineup now numbering seven (brother Paul, sister Susan and mother Barbara joining the original brothers Bill, Bob, Barry and John) had their first million-selling single, 'The Rain, the Park and Other Things' (usually called the 'The Flower Girl' song) which was featured most recently in Jim Carrey's movie, 'Dumb and Dumber.' 'Indian Lake' and 'We Can Fly' followed in the summer and in 1969 they had their biggest hit, the multi-million selling title song from the musical 'Hair.' The Cowsills also recorded the theme song for the TV show 'Love, American Style.' Today, The Cowsills tour and perform together (although brothers Barry and Bill have passed away) and their harmonies are still as infectious and bright as ever.
