Growing up in the late 70's this album is ingrained as part of the sound-track to my youth. Never one to follow the crowd at the time I loved (and still do) this collection of tracks, some of which (unusually for the artist) have a sweet sentiment of their own, while others are just plain curious additions to the selection here.

His better known (and, to my mind, more forgettable) songs from the era are here - Daydreamer and the Puppy Song - but there's also a couple of gems that have been long forgotten. Summer Days is a sweet, happy song celebrating long, warm summers in that bitter-sweet period between child- and adult-hood.

My all-time favourite, Can't Go Home Again, captures so perfectly the happy times and wistfulness of a lost youth. In the days following 9/11 I found myself a Brit stuck on a week's vacation in New York - having survived the horrors I was anxious to escape Manhattan and took one of the first trains out, to Southport, MA. A lovely, sleepy town full of local colour, this song truly came alive for me - it'd be so perfect for someone like Jamie Cullum to re-interpret today.

The final track - Hold On Me - I can still remember every word of, some 30 years on.

The oddity on this album is Bali Ha'i - until you realise this track is a tribute to his mother - Shirley Jones(who also appeared in the Partridge Family tv show) - who starred in the stage version of the show South Pacific.

If you're looking for a typical example of 70's pop - or of the teeny-bop phenomenon that characterised the artist's other recordings - this isn't it. But if you're interested in sweet songs with simple melodies ... keep an open mind and give it a try!

David Cassidy is an underratted singer who made some wonderful records in the 70's. I admit that I didn't like him in the early 70's because only girls liked him then. What a terrible mistake that was as I later found. First heard this album in 1977 and it has been one of my favourites ever since. Every track is a classic with Can't Go Home Again the standout among a collection of standouts.

This album is a classic and I can't recomend it highly enough.

Have always loved this cd because i bought it many years ago on vinyl but havent heard it for ages until I received cd format. This cd is so great and I havent stopped listening to it so different from Partridge Family music and even better.

As I didn't really start listening to music until the summer of 1973, I kind of 'missed' a lot of David Cassidy's hits. I'd never bothered with 'The Partridge Family' so the first time I was properly introduced to him was when 'Daydreamer/The Puppy Song' (Double A Side!) was released in October. Of course, even I was aware that Cassidy was a huge star, but I was more of an Osmonds guy, to be honest. I suppose, on reflection, I shouldn't have been listening to either!

Still, 'Daydreamer's irresistable charms pulled me in and I bought the single (on dear old Bell records) in the week it debuted at #8 in the charts. It was and still is a lovely pop song, sweetly sentimental and perfectly performed. It was one of those records that appealed not just to Cassidy's primarily young fanbase but to everyone else too.

So, the single became David's last truly massive hit and the album it came from, 'Dreams Are Nuthin'... soared to #1 on the back of it. I didn't buy the LP then. I discovered it m-a-n-y years later at a flea market, noticable more for it's fancy gatefold sleeve than anything else. I wasn't honestly expecting much from it. A lot of water had passed under the bridge for sure and Cassidy's heyday had long gone...

It's hard to imagine how Cassidy's fans would have reacted to this album upon it's release. Lulled in by 'Daydreamer', if they were expecting more obvious pop hits they would have been disappointed, but 'Dreams' is an astonishingly good and mature album. Considering he was only 23 at the time, who'd have thought he could co-compose and perform so movingly a track as heartfelt was 'Can't Go Home Again'? Or pull off a version of 'Bali Ha'i', surely something that shouldn't have worked, with such aplomb?

There are pop treats too.
