The song COULD IT BE FOREVER on this compilation is NOT the original hit version when released in 1972 instead its sadly a waterdown version of this superb song when David originally recorded it. I AM A CLOWN has been heavily edited at the beginning compared to the original hit song. As far as I know the Partridge Family song ONE NIGHT STAND was never release in mono BUT it is here! The sound engineer who remastered this CD must have forgot to switch on the stereo button.

THE LAST KISS and the 'single' version of ROMANCE (still waiting CD debut) would have completed this compilation. But these tracks are sadly missing.

The CD booklet is bare bones. Hardly any liner notes and absolutely no pictures in sight apart from the cover.

I acknowledge that, first and foremost, I write this review as a fan. Having said that - I will also first acknowledge what is disappointing about this collection: no liner notes (the record company SHOULD have commissioned David to write about the songs); David's hit recording of 1974 "Please Please Me" is a surprise omission (recorded live, it captures the mass hysteria of David's audience at the time); the version of "Darlin'" is not the remixed track issued as a (hit) single in 1975 (the version included here is David's passionate album track vocal).

Now to the good bits: this is a fabulous selection of David's hits and greatest from 1970 to 1975. It brings together most of the songs that topped the charts worldwide during the period when David Cassidy was the undisputed King of Pop. And it reminds the listener what an incredible singer the man was/is and how well he could interpret a song. These songs are David's legacy to the pop world, a legacy that is too often ignored by self-appointed pop critics.

Songs like "Could It Be Forever", "Daydreamer", "How Can I Be Sure", "Rock Me Baby", "I Write The Songs" (David's version was the original) and "Cherish" are all pop classics and demonstrate David's vocal versatility. The Partridge Family hits are well-written, superbly performed, mini pop masterpieces.

I'm particularly pleased to note that the original version of "If I Didn't Care" with the extended harmonica section finally resurfaces as the one included in this collection!!!!

David Cassidy in his hey day was unassailable. His records sold in the millions. His concerts, held in the biggest venues worldwide, were complete sell outs. His face on a the cover of a magazine guaranteed a sold out edition. This collection is a great reminder for those of us who lived it all and a testimony for those who didn't. Buy it!!!

Sadly as an earlier reviewer has pointed out , not all the songs are the original recordings,
that aside the disc does in some form harbour most of his hit material from the 70's in the
main.
Of course ,David Cassidy came to the fore as a result of his association with the American
show 'The Partridge Family' he had that clean-cut boy-next-door image making him popular
with the girls of that time.
He was an accomplished musician and song-writer, his vocals more than acceptable back
then.
'David' had two number one successes those being 'How can I be Sure' (1972) and in 73'
'Daydreamer' / The Puppy Song.
His first chart success was in fact 'Could it be Forever' / 'Cherish' witch peaked at number '2'
in the U.K in 1972.
Among some of the other hits on-board - 'Rock ME Baby' (Chart '11' 1972) 'I am a Clown' /
Some Kind of Summer' ( Chart '3' 1973) 'If I didn't Care' (Chart '9' 1974) and 'I Write the Songs'
(Chart '11' 1975) - (This Song a 'Barry Manilow' number )...and...'Darlin' (Chart '16' 1975)....
all numbers mentioned can be found on this release, one or two of his 70's hits are not included
on-board, however the songs he's best remembered for, are.
He did have one or two chart entries beyond the seventies which also are not included.
'David Cassidy' was one of the acts that remain remembered from that time, he does in fact still
perform to this day.
Though as mentioned earlier there are one or two quibbles with this release, I have to say, overall
it's a fair reflection of the mans music and more importantly 'The Memories We Have'

I would just like to say that I really enjoy this CD but was disappointed that the track Darlin' was cut short, not like the album version. I really like the track The Puppy Song which is my favourite song. I think that as CD's go this one is most certainly the best David has done, I was really surprised that Please Please Me wasn't on here like on the Definitive Collection of David Cassidy and Partridge Family songs, but that aside I think that the songs are really great, and perhaps next Christmas David will release an album of Christmas songs.

I think that David is a great singer and can't wait for him to release a new album next year and hope to see him in the rewind tour next year - if there are any tickets left for the London Arena concert.

This C.D. played twice already by me on receipt of it and love David Cassidy's unique vocal even more now than then ! This is an excellent C.D. for those who wish like me to re - live those Partridge Family days as well as hear and appreciate just why David's music was a hit in the 70's assisted by his own natural appeal to his audiences !
