  1. Exactly James. I have all the PF albums, and I would say the first two have a lot to love on them. Cassidy’s voice was sped up slightly on the first two albums to make him sound younger, but the overall result is still very good. After Sound Magazine, I would say the albums have a little more filler. There are still excellent songs on all of them, but also several that are not as memorable. As Matthew says, Bulletin Board is a very unique album as it came out just when the pop sound was changing toward R&B/dance music. So there are songs on there from many different genres. That album also contains one of my all time Partridge faves:
  2. I love Bee Gees Main Course! One of the most eclectic albums out there. Great songs from so many genres. And anyone who hasn’t seen this video of Wally Farkas doing Nights on Broadway should watch it! 😁
  3. Honestly, I like only about half of this album. Desperate Fools, Someday, Deanie...love those. Change of Heart I like. The rest really doesn’t do it for me. The first solo album is the only one I love 100%.
  4. This is kind of a controversial issue, but I very much agree. One of the few bad things the Beatles brought us was everyone in every band wanting to be a song writer. Three members of the Beatles happened to be very good at it. But that, like almost everything with the Beatles, is not typical of other bands. Picture a Who album on which only four of the nine tracks are written by Pete Townshend. It would not be better than a Who album with every track by Pete. I enjoy some of the Dave and Wally songs, but the unavoidable truth is that every Raspberries album was weakened by including too many songs not written by Eric Carmen.
  5. I am a big fan of Lindsey but am remiss in that I haven’t listened to any of his solo material, only the FM albums I own. I think he’s so great because everything he does is in service to making the song better. It’s not ostentatious or self-aggrandizing. ”You Make Loving Fun” is a good example. All those little fills are ingenious and really make the song better.
  6. @James Hope you enjoy the Partridge Family album ol’ pal! The PF LPs have much richer arrangements than the versions shown on the TV show. Like the Monkees they are a combination of songwriting pros, great studio musicians and vocalists, and David Cassidy’s inimitable singing. But Sound Magazine is by far their best in my opinion.
  7. @LC Bee Gees 1st is a great Beatlesque psychedelic pop album. Other than the several big hits that are on it there are lots of succulent nuggets like this....
  8. Limiting it to one Beatles album... 1. Beatles - Revolver 2. The Who Sell Out 3. Partridge Family - Sound Magazine 4. Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties 5. Todd Rundgren - S/A Honorable Mention.... Bee Gees First Eric Carmen 1975
  9. I recently discovered this incredible album, though of course I was already familiar with "Time of the Season." Truly a masterpiece all the way through, and definitely appealing to the EC fan!
  10. I much prefer the Stones during the Jones period. Their best albums are Flowers, Satanic, Between the Buttons and Let it Bleed.
  11. Alice Cooper's "No More Mr. Nice Guy" is a brilliant lyric. Pete Townshend is a great lyricist. Examples include "Run, Run, Run", "Tattoo", "I Can't Reach You", and a ton of others.
