Caught In The Act

Ex-bubble-gum star Billy Cowsill’s something of an institution in these parts but if you’ve never treated yourself to his sweet and burnished readings of Johnny Rivers’ Poor Side of Town or Brenda Lee’s I’m Sorry, best hustle over to the Sidetrack before the week’s out. After several years of spinning his wheels the Vancouver resident has just hooked up with K.D. Lang’s manager Larry Wanagas, who plans to get an album out by early 1987. With Cowsill’s warm and personal croon, splendid taste in guitar players (not long ago Colin James was his sideman, last week it was the dazzling Gary Koliger this week ex-Prism member Lindsay Mitchell) and sturdy original rock ‘n’ roll, the opportunity may not be so easy to come by in the future.
