Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. pressing of Sound Magazine by the Partridge Family.
About this copy: This copy of Sound Magazine is an original 1971 pressing on the Bell label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The shrink wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears, or holes. Unlike many sealed copies of this album, this copy does not have any cutout marks, such as a saw mark, cut corner, or drill hole. There are a couple of tiny corner dents, but otherwise, this copy is pretty close to perfect.
A beautiful copy of a pretty good record that is usually found in terrible condition.
Background: Sound Magazine was the third Partridge Family album, released in August of 1971. Their first three albums were all released in a 10 month span, and all three reached the American Top 10.
Sound Magazine was the last album by the “group,” which was largely David Cassidy with backing by L.A.’s famed Wrecking Crew, to reach the top 10. Sales of the album were helped by the single “I Woke Up in Love This Morning,” which reached #13 on the American pop charts.
The Partridge Family Sound Magazine, the third long-player from the pre-fab and made-for-TV combo, was also the last to make it into the Top Ten. …Providing instrumental support for Cassidy and Jones were some of the most prolific pop and rock studio musicians of the era — many of whom had likewise worked on Monkees platters. Heavyweights such as Hal Blaine (drums), Larry Carlton (guitar), Joe Osborne (bass), and Larry Knechtel (keyboards) gave the vocalists a nonconfrontational and genteel sound to match their squeaky-clean persona. Also joining the proceedings were the cavity-invoking backing harmonies of the Love Generation, who had participated to some degree on every Partridge Family release. The single “I Woke Up in Love This Morning” reached the Top 20 survey, making it the highest-profile side on the album. Other notable fan favorites included are “Echo Valley 2-6809,” “Summer Days,” and “Love Is All That I Ever Needed,” the Cassidy co-composition concluding this effort.
