"This album was around my house since I was 11 years old. I think it was bought and given to my younger brother and inevitiably, I heard this through the walls and it grew on me. I have very good taste in music-I like to think and I love the Beatles and the Doors etc and I also write songs and play several instruments. With that in mind and in my humble opinion, this album is very well written and arranged. For years, when I was home from college, I had to wait till everyone in my family was not home to get this album out and crank it. There is nothing hard rocking about it-it's just well done. David Cassidy's voice was perfect for this type of music and I think this is by far the best of Wes Farrell and company did. I met David Cassidy about 1991 and I asked him about one of the songs on this album "Morning Rider on the Road" and he said "wow, I haven't thought of that song in years". He sounded sincere and I hope he realized he had touched someone in the way that every aspiring musician wants to touch their listeners. I now own the CD version and this music has stood the test of time. I've heard other Partridge Family albums and they just don't compare. The writing wasn't as fresh on later releases and more than anything, Cassidy's vocal delivery was better during this time period."
