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.
Highly recommended for it's easy listening

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.
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.
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.
