All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
This platter is the first of seven non-seasonal offerings from the pre-fabricated-for-television entity known as the Partridge Family. The idea took root in both the overtly marketing-oriented Monkees' multimedia project and combined it with the infinite storyline possibilities inherent in the honest to goodness pop
ock relations, the Cowsills. The Partridge Family ran on ABC-TV from September 25, 1970, through August 31, 1974. Just as the Monkees had been created to do, a few of the primary cast members -- in this case, Shirley Jones vocals and David Cassidy vocals -- were also the Partridge Family's lead vocalists.

All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
This platter is the first of seven non-seasonal offerings from the pre-fabricated-for-television entity known as the Partridge Family. The idea took root in both the overtly marketing-oriented Monkees' multimedia project and combined it with the infinite storyline possibilities inherent in the honest to goodness pop
ock relations, the Cowsills. The Partridge Family ran on ABC-TV from September 25, 1970, through August 31, 1974. Just as the Monkees had been created to do, a few of the primary cast members -- in this case, Shirley Jones vocals and David Cassidy vocals -- were also the Partridge Family's lead vocalists. The campaign ultimately yielded a consistently high-rated television program and The Partridge Family Album 1970 -- which was issued only a few weeks after the show's debut -- became the first of seven Top 40 LPs that yielded a pair of Top Ten hits on a double-sided 45 containing both "I Think I Love You" and "Somebody Wants to Love You." Accompanying Cassidy and Jones are session gurus Hal Blaine drums, Larry Carlton guitar, Joe Osborne bass, and Larry Knechtel keyboards. Providing the sucrose-laden backing vocals is the Love Generation, who ultimately participated on all of the Partridge Family's LPs. Along with a cast of co-collaborators, it was Wes Farrell who created the sound that would become most synonymous with the "Family." One of the only non-Farrell cuts is the Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil side "I Really Want to Know You." This is of particular note as it was also recorded by the Cowsills on one of their concurrent efforts. Along with "I'm on the Road'" -- the album's other Mann/Weil composition -- these also represent two tracks without a Cassidy or Jones lead vocal. Rather, the Love Generation provided a dated-sounding ersatz ensemble vocal. All 11 of the songs on The Partridge Family Album were incorporated into the TV show and several, such as "I Can Feel Your Heartbeat" and "Point Me in the Direction of Albuquerque," have become favorites even though they were not singles. In 2000, Buddha Records began restoring the Partridge Family catalog and reissued this title on CD for the first time.

    FANTASTIC FIRST ALBUM FOR TV'S FIRST FAMILY OF MUSIC

    The first album from the popular television series documents the early experimentations with the Partridge Family sound which makes for a very satisfying album with varied textures. Includes the #1 smash ''I Think I Love You'', the rockin' classic ''I Can Feel Your Heartbeat'',the Afro-flavored ''Bandala'' and the beautiful ''I Really Want to Know You'' which features Shirley Jones and the first rate session singers. Breathtaking in Surround Sound!
