The Partridge Family is an American musical sitcom starring Shirley Jones and featuring David Cassidy. Jones plays a widowed mother, and Cassidy plays the oldest of her five children who embark on a music career. It ran from September 25, 1970, until March 23, 1974, on the ABC network as part of a Friday-night lineup, and had subsequent runs in syndication. The family was loosely based on the real-life musical family the Cowsills, a popular band in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Besides David Cassidy singing lead and Shirley Jones on backup, the Partridge Family lip-synched all vocals and acted in playing their instruments. Meet the success behind the 70s TV series musical family in The Sound of the Partridge. Shirley Jones and David Cassidy were the only members of The Partridge Family allowed to perform on their recordings. Unlike The Monkees, the actors who were not hired to sing didn't have musical aspirations.

Tellingly, The Partridge Family Notebook (1972) became the first Partridge album to fail to reach the Top 40, or even yield a solid hit. The weekly prime time sitcom continued to run on ABC-TV, as central cast members Shirley Jones (vocals) and David Cassidy (vocals) worked in the recording studio alongside heavyweights such as Hal Blaine (drums), Larry Carlton (guitar), Joe Osborne (bass), and Larry Knechtel (keyboards). Yet the fickle nature of pop music had begun to shift away from the pre-fab, formulaic, and predictable Partridge Family

David Cassidy, the star of The Partridge Family has died. He was 67 years old. Cassidy recently announced he had been diagnosed with dementia. He recently retired from touring and doing live musical performances. Cassidy's stepmother, Shirley Jones, was married to Jack for nearly two decades until they divorced in 1975. She co-starred with David in The Partridge Family, a musical sitcom based on a real family about a widow and her children who embark on a musical career as a band. He played the oldest son, Keith

The graphics and booklet of "David Cassidy and the Partridge Family" are quite good. I do wish that real photos of the gang had always been used instead of including of a couple of rather crummy drawings, especially on the back cover of the CD case. However, the booklet has 4 good group photos along with a pretty interesting text and good song data. Until we get the hoped for 2-CD collection of David Cassidy and The Partridge Family, this is probably the best "best of" collection of them out there. One person found this helpful.
