A nice copy of an LP that is very hard to find complete.

Background: Released in 1972, Shopping Bag was the fifth studio album by the Partridge Family.

The album reached #18 on the U.S. album charts and was certified gold. gave Shopping Bag a 2 1/2 star review:

This classic title was the fifth long-player to be issued under the Partridge Family moniker. Issued in the spring of 1972, the platter respectably charted in the Top 20 and was the first of their LPs not to have entered the Top Ten, despite its release during the absolute height of the Partridge Family’s television success in the early ’70s…. Instrumentally, the crème de la crème of session musicians — such as Hal Blaine (drums), Larry Carlton (guitar), Joe Osborne (bass), and Larry Knechtel (keyboards) — provided a perfect simple-but-sweet bubblegum, no-frills backing. …It also spawned a pair of singles — “Am I Losing You” and the hugely popular international hit “It’s One of Those Nights (Yes Love).” The appearance of all 11 cuts in third-season episodes no doubt helped as well.
