That patch is cool. " The Partridge Family Lives"... Maybe they should do it as an anniversary release. 50th for sure if not sooner.

I hope the book continues to get publicity and a wide distribution, because it really shows a lot of love and care on the part of the author.

It is probably the most comprehensive reference out there and very current.

I noticed it even has pictures from the appearance Danny made in Philadelphia with David in 2010 with the Bass.

Wow, I can't believe that was 6 years ago now. My how time flies.

What a wonderful Christmas present, so great for Partridge reference, like a PF Encyclopedia! I also like David's new Christmas EP. And my new Amy Grant CD Tennessee Christmas. On one of the songs she says what that in my stocking? Wow it's a Partridge Family Bus!!!!

Just finished reading the book last night.

Great Read. so much information. Even things that are interesting that I didn't think related to the Partridges. I had forgotten that " My Best Girl" was from Mame and interesting fact that Jerry Herman actually had Judy Garland in mind for the role before Angela Lansbury took it on Broadway.

This book is like having a PF encyclopedia and I will probably be using it as reference and rereading it for a long time.

Can't wait to hear what everyone else thinks. Very Happy

I received mine in time to bring it to Boston for the holiday. I am so thrilled with the book. Not only does it uncover so much NEW information, it also corrects a LOT of mistakes written on past CD liner notes. John is a fantastic writer as well. This is the book we've all been waiting for. Smile

Me too. I especially love the notes and info on the songs from the albums. I really enjoy finding out what was suppose to be the singles from the albums and/or the follow-up singles and why the initial decisions were abandoned. I particularly like the realizations - after all these years - that "I can feel your heartbeat" that should have been the 2nd single. Finally, fascinating the tug of war "Summer days" went through.

Back to reading...

They are probably shipping them to the people who donated to the Kickstarter campaign first, and then the remaining copies after that.
