4.0 out of 5 stars the partridge family crossword puzzle 14 Oct 2012
By stnc
Format:Audio CD
What would be nice....is why can't these tracks be remastered to at least resemble the tv mixes..eg: bring forward the backing vocals for example on It means I'm in love.....this song has become a real durg compared to the tv mix..if the were remixed the instruments would also be more clear. You can actually hear Shirley Jones on the tv mix..did she really get lost in the album mix or did she only sing in the tv mixes?

5.0 out of 5 stars Memory Lane 17 Dec 2009

Loved the LP of this years ago, having bought this cd have realised how great a singer DC is, his voice is crisp and clear and you can hear every word, he hits the high notes well too! Fantastic would advise all DC fans to buy it NOW!
Took me back to being a teenager in love with DC listening to his voice for hours in my bedroom.
Also would highly recommend his autobiography, its sad reading he suffered a lot, but survived.
Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good example of Partride Family music 26 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There are a lot of good songs on this CD. The one that stands out is 'As Long As There's You'. It is a symbol of friendship that my friends and I have embraced, and we are probably not the only ones.
Highly recommended for it's easy listening

5.0 out of 5 stars Puzzeled by canceled release on CD! 8 Jan 2002
By Alan Russo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This LP originally came out in the spring/summer of 1973. Most of the songs came from their third season. This was their last charting LP. Bulletin Board, which followed Crossword, was released in the fall of 1973 in conjunction with their fourth season and became their final studio LP.
The songs are light and pop hit drenched. Made for AM airplay were songs like One Day At A Time, Sunshine, It Means I'm In Love With You and It Sounds Like You're Saying Hello. Unfortunately, no singles were released here in the US. Looking For A Good Time b/w Money Money was their official last US 45 released in 1974. Both songs were featured on Bulletin Board. As Long As There's You b/w Come On Love was released in Japan as was Sunshineb/w Now That You Got Me Where You Want Me. It's A Long Way To Heaven, a PF traditional ballad, became a PF favorite from this LP. Let Your Love Go was also good time pop/rock.
This re-issue by Buddha was to be released in Febuary of 2001 along with Shopping Bag (formerly re-issued by Razor & Tie),
and David Cassidy's second solo LP from 1972 called Rock Me Baby.
Buddha was to follow in the summer and fall of 2001 with Bulletin Board and David's solo LP's Dreams Are Nuthin' More Than Wishes... and Cassidy Live! There was also a PF collection of unreleased tracks from the show called Gems that was to follow by the end of 2001. David quickly put an end to the re-issues. There is little hope for their return to CD world. The decline of their popularity will continue without proof of re-issue of original material. There are rumors that this CD may be floating around out there along with Rock Me Baby. It's a shame we have to go underground for such trivial situations.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of what was left 31 Mar 2004
By J. Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's my opinion that all Partridge Family albums live and die by their hooks, and by that standard "Crossword Puzzle" fares very well. It's a given that any PF album has it's share of treacly love songs, but when luck strikes these can be some of the best PF tracks. The sexy-sounding (but utterly safe) "I've Got Your Love All Over Me" is a prime example -- the featherweight lyric about being immersed in love is buoyed by the trademark PF backup ooohs and aaaahs. And under everything else are the Bell sessionmen, like Hal Blaine and Larry Knetchell, providing the toe-tapping rhythms and melodies.
I can't say that all of "Crossword Puzzle" is as catchy as that one track, but there are plenty of memorable moments. I'd keep "One Day At A Time" (upbeat, definitely used in the show), "As Long As There's You" (downbeat, but heartfelt), "Now That You've Got Me..." (yeah, a long-winded title, but I dig that change in dynamic at the chorus), "Come On Love" (a jaunty lite-rocker), and "I've Got Your Love...". Of the remaining five, "Sunshine" seems well-intentioned, and "It's A Long Way To Heaven" has a nice vocal by David.
Though the subsequent PF album, "Bulletin Board," includes three or four audio gems, "Crossword Puzzle" is the last must-have disc, in my opinion. This reissue is quite well done, with excellent remastered sound that's bound to be an improvement on existing analog sources. I'd have given this album five stars, had the label included a bonus track, or been more adventurous when equalizing their digital master. This PFamily album, in particular, had some fairly dynamic moments, rhythmically-speaking, though they were always buried in the original AM-radio-friendly mixdown. Oh well, I guess Arista was more interested in 'preserving' the original sound, which is reasonable.
I think "Crossword Puzzle" is one of the Partridge Family's better albums overall. It's certainly a good selection for new listeners or casual fans, who might wish to expand their PF collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Partridge Pearl 16 July 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Partridge Album was originally released in 1973 as the Partridge Money making machine was grinding to a halt. Unfortunately, here in the States, once the television show was officially cancelled, DJs and the music industry people truly believed that it was time to call it quits on the whole Partridge scene.....WRONG! Thirty four years later there are still some die-hard baby boomers singing along to these great tunes. Sadly, Crossword Puzzle, although thrown together from leftovers from "Notebook" tracks, had some great, more mature sounds han most of their previous material. But Crossword Puzzle and its successor, Bulletin Board, both great albums were shunned and overlooked by the pre-teens who normally snatched up these products with fevered regularity. Some of the stronger, more noteable tunes such as "As Long As There's You", "It Means I'm In Love With You" and C'mon Love" all had hit potential but like other gems from the previous "Notebook" LP were systematically ignored as the producers also went through the motions of ending the show. The last two LPs were never promoted and some baby boomers have told me that they never knew these existed! Sad but true! This artsy LP is worth it even for the pop stature of the LP cover which is a real crossword puzzle featuring superb liner notes by foremost Partridge researcher Lisa Sutton and a reissue on the back cover of the Japanese cover art (US original back cover art is happily intact on the booklet! Great LP, super 70s sound, wonderfully remastered and worth much more than it's retail price. Hopefully the execs at Arista/BMG will find it worthwhile to put the Bulletin Board and other great Cassidy LPs out on CD before us baby boomers are all dead!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars ahhhh, bubblegum! 23 Oct 2005
By jon sieruga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the Partridge Family's weakest sellers, "Crossword Puzzle" didn't even have a stateside 45-single release (Bell Records put out "Friend and a Lover" from "Notebook" instead!). Too bad, because the songs (mostly leftovers from the "Notebook" sessions) are terrific and David Cassidy's husky post-teen vocals are charming and warm. Opening with the kicker "One Day at a Time", it's clear that Cassidy knows his way around a hook by now, and he's fully in the bubblegum spirit. A trio of ballads ("As Long As There's You", "It's a Long Way to Heaven" and "Now That You've Got Me...") give the record a kind of AM-radio feel, and, while the songs are lovely, they make the overall tone of "Crossword Puzzle" seem a little staid. But the next few songs are upbeat, especially the album's best track, "It Sounds Like You're Saying Hello", which could've been a hit single. Waiting now for "Bulletin Board"...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best!! 23 May 2003
By F. Barton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After almost a TWO year wait, this CD is finally here!!! It was worth the time, as the remastering is GREAT, and finally brings us into the musicianship that the old BELL pressings so badly lacked.
Along with the Fifth Dimention's albums on Bell, the PF's albums always looked great, but often sounded like sandpaper upon the very first playing. Many 45 rpms, I remember returning, as they skipped upon the first playing. So here, at last, we have all the fidelity that was intended, and hopefully a release to give credence to one of the best studio groups ever!!
I can't recommend this enough, and only hope that "Bulletin Board" will be next, which will complete ALL the PF albums that were made. I would ALSO like to see a 2CD set of ALL the songs on the TV show, that never made it to an album, most notably "The Whale Song" which I constantly get requests for, however it was never issued!! Let's rectify that, because there are a lot of fans out here who know what talent this group had, and continues to have to this day. "It's a Long Way to Heaven" is certainly a standout ballad on this CD, and hopefully we will hear it a lot.
Highly recommended!
