Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. copy of the debut LP by the Partridge Family, The Partridge Family Album.
About this copy: This copy of The Partridge Family Album is a sealed original U.S. issue. As the album is sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The shrink wrap is fully intact except for a 1/2″ break along the spine and a small (1/4″ or so) tear near the front bottom edge. There is a saw mark in the upper right hand cover of the cover and a slight break in the wrap there.
Most copies of this album included a full-color portrait of the Partridge Family, but we have no way of knowing if that photo is included in this copy.
A nice copy of an album that’s usually found in terrible condition. It’s also a surprisingly good record.
Background: While the Partridge Family wasn’t a group in the traditional sense, they had a surprising amount of chart activity for a band that wasn’t really a band.
Consisting of singer David Cassidy and backing band the Wrecking Crew, the group put three albums in the U.S. top ten and five singles in the top 20 in a span of just two years.
The Partridge Family Album reached #4 on the U.S. album chart, helped by the #1 single, “I Think I Love You.”
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).
