Background: Released in 1968, Captain Sad and His Ship of Fools was the third studio album by the Cowsills.

The album reached #105 on the U.S. album charts.  The single, “Indian Lake” reached #10 on the U.S. single charts. gave Captain Sad and His Ship of Fools a 4 star review:

It says a great deal about how pop records were made in the 1960s that the Cowsills’ Captain Sad and His Ship of Fools was the third album the Rhode Island family band would cut within the space of just 12 months, and while most current bands would balk at the workload of cutting one album a year along with touring, 1968’s Captain Sad suggests the Cowsills were handling their busy schedule very well indeed. Captain Sad doesn’t feature as many hits as the Cowsills’ first two long-players (though “Indian Lake” would chart high for the group), but the music is uniformly splendid, and for a group that featured members who were nine and 11, the material is mature, tuneful, and beautifully executed, with excellent harmonies from the siblings and imaginative production from Billy Cowsill and Bob Cowsill.
