If you’re looking for some Christmas nostalgia, A Partridge Family Christmas Card will definitely bring you back.
Originally released in the 1970s, the album featured a picture of the entire cast from the hit show, but actually only featured teen heart-throb David Cassidy and his real-life stepmother Shirley Jones on the vocals.
“My Christmas Card To You” is a delightful little diddy about spreading peace, love, and happiness to all those around you. Its sincere sentiment is welcome in these hard times.
“May your life be filled with sunshine, may your every wish come true, may you find the sweet fulfillment in everything you do, may your days be blessed with the very, very best both now and the whole year through, it says so in my Christmas card to you…”
“Jingle Bells” is performed in a more fun, upbeat way than you typically hear. There are bells jangling throughout and the drums give it a cool rock sound. It makes me want to get up and dance!
Keith Partridge (David Cassidy)’s swoon-inducing voice is most effective, however, on the sad, slow song “Blue Christmas”. The touching way he delivers the lyrics makes the emotion, loneliness, and heartache seem so real.
If you already have the album, dust it off and take another listen.
