The Partridge Family

The Partridge Family was a sitcom about a widowed mother and her five children who traveled around in a bus to different venues to perform songs.

The series ran from 1970 until 1974. It starred Shirley Jones and David Cassidy along with Susan Dey, Danny Bonaduce, Jeremy Gelbwaks (later replaced by Brian Forster) and Suzanne Crough. Dave Madden[?] played Reuben Kincaid, who was their manager and booked all their tours. The story was loosely based around The Cowsills[?], who were a real singing family.

The Partridge Family's biggest hit was in 1970 with the song "I Think I Love You" (lyrics (http://www.superseventies.com/sl_ithinkiloveyou)). They had an album that followed which was in the top 100.

The Partridge Family lasted for four years until David Cassidy decided he just didn't want play the role of Keith Partridge any more. The show was cancelled after 96 episodes and 10 albums.

The Partridge Family made a number of record albums, some of which are available on compact disk today. The cover art of these albums reflects the spirit of the show. The albums include:

Even though the only singers were Shirley Jones and David Cassidy, people did buy the albums and the Partridge Family became a phenomenon.
