Christmas Countdown #1

Christmas is 3 weeks from today and we’re counting down with some Cowsills’ Christmas music! We’re starting with our appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Christmas Eve in 1967. Here’s a memory from Bob about that appearance:

In the Christmas medley, I was given Sleigh Ride and it was live television and the line that kept giving me trouble during rehearsal was “it’ll nearly be like a picture print from Courier and Ives” So every time I watch the video of that I see me holding it together but as that line is coming and approaching I know I’m thinking about it while I’m singing the verse I’m in and thinking … oh my God here it comes… oh my God here it comes… Courier and Ives… Courier and Ives.
