The original version of that song was called Come And Take A Ride In My Boat and was released in 1966 by the "Garage Band" Rare Breed...

I like that!

Oh my gosh, I forgot there was a different song the first season. I guess they had to have a new song to go along with the new Chris.

Tommy Roe was the King of Bubblegum.  From 1962 to 1971 he had eleven songs in the Top 40, six of which were in the Top 10 and two of those were #1s.

He even covered other bubblegum hits like Ohio Express'

I have to give that tune a pass because Hal Blaine played the drums on it. My wife and I sing that song to each other practically every day as we pass each other in the hall, so its kind of a joke tune for us.

It's been written that The Cowsills turned down the TV show offer because Shirley Jones was to star as the mother.  The Cowsill family collectively declined the offer.  They wanted their own mother to play their mother.

They certainly had the looks and talent for their own TV show.  They were immensely popular at the time and their four and five part harmonies were flawless.

They were humble too.  I remember taking my sister to a local department store where The Cowsills were doing a record-signing.  My sister struck up a conversation with Susan that went on for over twenty minutes.  They were good friends by the time I had to take my sister home.  They were all genuinely friendly to all their fans that day.

I'm pretty sure my sister still has that autographed Cowsills LP.  I'll see if I can get her to scan it for me.

Sounds like she has a nice autograph collection. I've always liked The Cowsills, especially "The Rain, the Park and Other Things". It's neat that it wasn't just called "The Flower Girl".  :)

I don't think The Cowsills should be classified as Bubblegum though.  They started out in the mid-60s singing Beatles songs.  Their late 60s hits were soft-rock genre.

I enjoyed their version of Hair and Susan's "and spaghetti!"

I think The Cowsills nailed that live performance of Paperback Writer.  Paul admitted in Anthology that they had a bit of trouble performing it live.  George said it was all right though...

That was a perfect song for The Cowsills. They even did the Frère Jacques bit.  :) Nobody could probably hear The Beatle when they performed it live anyway.
