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.

In 1978, several of the Cowsills-including Paul, John, Barry, Bob and Susan-recorded an album called Cocaine Drain with producer Chuck Plotkin. The album was never completed, and at some point the master tapes were lost. For almost 30 years the album existed only as a scratchy acetate. In March 2008 a version of the album was finally released, remastered from that acetate under Bob Cowsill's direction After the Cocaine Drain sessions, the Cowsills did some reunion shows in 1979–198. On My Side CD release 2010 by Cherry Red with 3 bonus tracks.

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".
