There are only three problems with this compilation: 1. The Partridge Family tracks are almost identical to the Partridge Family Greatest Hits CD (which incidentally includes "Come on Get Happy"). It would have been better to have more of his solo album tracks and fewer Partridge Family album tracks. 2. It has US sleeve notes and so does not refer to UK hits 3. Does not include "The Puppy Song" or any of his hits after leaving Bell - ie. "I Write the Songs" or "Darlin'" That having been said, it's great to finally have a David Cassidy Greatest Hits on CD!

I'm sorry, but it's great. I was a big David Cassidy fan and bought this CD mostly because all my LPs have stayed in their plastic covers for yonks and I never go to the trouble of getting them out and playing them. After all, I'm a grown up now - far too sensible and mature to play that sort of stuff. And CDs are so much more convenient for grown-ups to deal with. But when I saw that this collection was available on CD I thought it would be a bit of a giggle to buy it. Get ready, girls - when you put this CD on you are transported back to being a teenager! All the old feelings come rushing back - you're fourteen again! You know it's simple music and designed to appeal to young teenage girls - but what the heck, we were young teenage girls and we ate it up! You remember all the words of all the songs and you can't avoid singing along. The only strange thing is that when you played the original records to death you may have got used to jumps in the well-worn records shortening parts of the favourite songs - and yet on the CD they are miraculously whole again! Quite odd. Great stuff. If you like me don't look at the track list and just sit back, prepared for nice surprises as you hear the old songs pop up in an unexpected order, your smile muscles will ache, your eyes will be mist over with recollections of those heady 1970s and being a teenager. And if you loved this music then, you'll love it now!

This is the nearest thing to a definitive David Cassidy Greatest Hits collection - up to 1974 when he left Bell records and went to RCA to do "I Write the Songs" and his few remaining hits thereafter. "Then and Now" has inferior re-recordings of some of these songs which miss the essence of the originals' vitality and sense of fun. The only problems with this album are: 1. "I Am a Clown" is butchered with the first verse mercilessly chopped off altogether so it begins with the chorus; 2. No "Puppy Song" which was a UK #1 (with Daydreamer as a double A side) and one of my favourites - can't imagine why they forgot it; 3. One or two unnecessary cheesy Partridge Family numbers like "Point me in the Direction" which shouldn't have been included; and 4. No original theme song for the Partridge Family which would have been a good final track.
Despite these criticisms - a great CD for the car - easy to get nostalgic and sing along! 5 stars!

When I first saw this on CD I couldn't wait to order and be transported back to those days of bubblegum music and lighthearted pop. The CD was not disappointing. From the first notes to the very end every happy nerve tingles and I found myself singing along to all the old favourites. A good mix of Partridge Family and solo David Cassidy. A must for all DC fans especially if, like me, your old vinyls spend more time in the cardboard wallets than they do on the record deck

If you've been a fan of David Cassidy (and the Partridge Family - perhaps!) then this is the CD to buy. All the good sounds on one CD. Great songs with great memories for those of us born in the sixties and who enjoyed the sounds of our teens in the seventies. You'll enjoy it and won't be sorry you bought it.

If you long for the heyday when tv was not endless reality shows and music was proper songs with melodys and you were a major fan of David Cassidy and loved watching The Partridge Family then this album is for you. All the great classics are on there I woke up in love this morning, I'll meet you halfway, Doesn't somebody want to be wanted, Cherish, It's one of those nights, Am I losing you,
I am a clown, Could it be forever, How can I be sure, Rock me baby, Point me in the direction of Albuquerque, Looking through the eyes of love, Friend and Lover, Daydreamer, If I didn't care, Walking in the rain, Some kind of a summer, Please please me,
and the one song that was even sung by Jerry O' Connell in scream and David's biggest number one hit in the UK I Think I Love you.
I have never stopped playing these great tracks, the music of today is nothing compared to these magnificent classics.

Having enjoyed the Partridge Family on TV in the 70's, it was a delight to hear again such classics as Daydreamer and How can I be Sure. Cherish is included in the film Never Been Kissed with Drew Barrymore, so it can't be bad. Brilliant for all those 30 something Cassidy fans.

I loved this CD INSTANTLY..With the first track I was whisked back to the early seventies and was sucked in by the velveteen breathy voice of D.C.This is the first time in almost thirty years that I have put the stereo on repeat, and repeat and repeat. Thank God for personal stereos. You don't need to be a big P.F fan to love this ..you just need to have been "around" in your early teens in the early seventies.. This one oozes prepubescent memories, sing-a-long-ability and so more.....
