Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. promotional copy of Crossword Puzzle, the seventh album by the Partridge Family.
About this copy: This copy of Crossword Puzzle is a 1973 U.S. pressing on the Bell label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is mostly intact, but there is a 7″ (11 cm) tear in the wrap along the top edge. There is a sticker attached to the front cover that says “Promotional Copy Not for Sale.” The LP should have a white label, rather than the stock gray label (see photo.)
A nice copy of a scarce Partridge Family LP.
Background: Released in 1973, Crossword Puzzle was the seventh studio album by the Partridge Family.
The album reached #167 on the U.S. album charts.
Crossword Puzzle was the eighth LP from the Partridge Family — a multimedia, made-for-TV project that hit marketing pay dirt learning lessons from the success of the Monkees’ manufactured origins, as well as the real-life pop/rock family the Cowsills. … the best material on Crossword Puzzle comes from Tony Romeo’s lush emotive ballad “As Long as There’s You,” which points in the direction of Cassidy’s solo efforts. Of the lighter fare, another Romeo tune, “It Means I’m in Love With You,” has an airy bubblegum lilt that glides through the catchy melody. These highlights detract from the simply awful “Let Your Love Go” or the half-baked “It’s a Long Way to Heaven” — both of which are little more than mediocre filler.
