    I wanted to let you guys know how much I enjoyed the cds I received recently (Lighthouse and Just Believe It), and to encourage you to keep making music because there is definitely an audience. I’ve had Lighthouse in my car playing for a couplea weeks now….I’ll stop once I decide which track I like best. I don’t really understand why Americana music needs a category…it seems to have stupefied the critics for some time. My friends tell me they call it just good music but I take it a step further…to me it’s good music that sadly isn’t on the radio….and this is from someone from the Nashville area who knows the crap they put out here, for I consider the stuff you all do much closer to country music, like Lucinda or Steve Earle…the joke around here was when George Jones passed the local stations had to make a dash to Walmart cause they didn’t have any of his material to play in tribute. And the irony is it’s probably true. There’s good music still being made….you just have to look for it sometimes.
    Like a lot of folks, I became “reacquainted” with Cowsills music from the recent documentary. What a fabulous piece of work that was…so heartfelt and honest and answered so many questions. I was aware of you all’s music but I guess too young to appreciate it, but even at that age I seemed to know that you guys were serious musicians, and even would hear one of the family’s names passing through this area from time to time. And thanks to the wonder of YouTube (the reason the web was created!), I’ve been able to catch up on the work and projects both you and your sibs have been involved in over the years. I love your brother Bill’s stuff…especially the Blue Shadows work. It’s like he was on the cutting edge of the Americana scene but no one in the states seemed to know it. It made me think of the Everlys, the Mavericks, BoDeans, Foster & Lloyd…I love harmonies.
    And I’ve known of the Drifters but didn’t realize you guys were involved. I enjoyed the grittiness of that work, and Brother Hobart—great lyrics, songwriting…wonderful stuff. Has a cd been released because I can’t seem to find anything? Would love to know if or when the Hobarts or you guys’ solo act is coming thru this area…
