Honky-tonk heaven: Radney's coming to town

Billy Cowsill and his band The Blue Shadows may not have chalked up the album sales they had hoped for on their first album On The Floor Of Heaven, but they were strong enough, around 15,000, to warrant a second outing as far as Sony was concerned.

Cowsill, Jeff Hatcher and the rest of the Shadows are set to begin recording the follow-up this month on the West Coast.

The eldest singing son who had his taste of fame singing Indian Lake and Hair as a member of the family band, The Cowsills, isnít the only member of that brood who is actively touring and recording.

His sister Susan is a featured vocalist with a new band called the Continental Drifters which has just released itsí debut on Hypnotic Records, distributed in Canada by MCA.

Although a somewhat uneven disc, the band pulls off a great version of the Gram Parsons tune She and also leaves the impression it has energy to spare as a live unit.

Maybe someday one of the Cowsills will make a guest appearance on the otherís album.
