5.0 out of 5 stars Another compilation?? THIS IS DIFFERENT!! Buy It!, 17 Oct 2013

This review is from: Playlist: the Very Best of the Partridge Family (Audio CD)
On the outset, you may wonder why Sony has released yet another compilation albeit only 14 tracks compared to 4 previous CD compilation during the past 2 decades or so (Lunchbox, David Cassidy's Partridge Favourites, Definitive and Come on Get Happy Very Best of..) Well this is a part of series of CDs called Playlist: The very best of.. on various different singers/groups and now they have turned their attention on The Partridge Family. To make this CD unique they have included the first time ever on any format the STEREO mix (Original Hit version) of 'Breaking Up is Hard To Do' which sounds absolutely STUNNING!!!

On the whole all the tracks featured are Greatest Hits Songs and popular album tracks depicted from US market sales as oppose to the different UK/worldwide releases like 'Walking in the rain'. The sound quality is excellent.

I always wondered why 'Breaking Up Is Hard To Do' was never previously released in stereo. It's probably because it was never an album track though it was made during the same recording sessions as some of the other hits. And went straight to 7" single release which was mono and this master was subsequently used for the then upcoming compilations. But especially for this Brand new compilation release the stereo backing/vocal tracks have finally been engineered together. And as I always imagined to my personal expectation a TRUE STEREO SOUND! with backing vocals and instruments nicely separated. This is the reason this CD is a must buy.

The CD: This is beautifully package, with full blown pages of rare colour photos, and terrific liner notes composite nicely together. The CD comes in a standard white coloured jewell case.

I figured apart from the umpteenth reissues of Partridge Family Albums on CD, compilations are very far inbetween making this latest one the fifth since the CD format came about as to why there haven't been that many unreleased Partridge Family Songs which are just as brilliant and very well known. I will say to SONY MUSIC who owns this material remember there's a lot of people/fans out there around the world who have seen re-runs of the TV series or bought the DVD who are familiar with all the unreleased Partridge Family songs and would like some form of CD compilation. I hope with the engineering of 'Breaking Up Is Hard To Do' stereo version, this may pave way to the unreleased songs.

I'm a huge fan of The Partridge Family so I'm pretty much biased! It's a great album - brings back memories of long hot summer days and a very gorgeous and talented David Cassidy!

....and the plus for every PF Fan - the Stereo Mix of Breaking Up Is Hard To Do which really jumps out of the speakers !! Can't believe this has never been on a Best Of or Greatest Hits package before (to the best of my knowledge)
The Partridge Family are really underrated because of the session musician/TV show angle - but taking the music on it's own merits, the project had great songwriters and the Wrecking Crew as backing musicians - most of the music produced was of a very high standard.
