EXCLUSIVE TO CMONGETHAPPY.COM:

THE DEFINITIVE
PARTRIDGE FAMILY
SONG LIST!!

In our continuing series of Partridge Profiles, cmongethappy.com is thrilled to announce that we have just interviewed Background Vocalist Ron Hicklin! While we finish formatting the interview (and Tom Bahler's as well), we wanted to share some incredible information that Ron pulled from his personal files and shared with us! The following is what we feel is THE definitive song list of all Partridge Family songs ever recorded!! That's right: Album Songs! Episode Songs. Lost Songs!

Below you'll find the recording dates for each song and which vocalists were present each day (you will notice that two vocalists, always uncredited -- Stan Farber and Jerry Whitman -- were also present on certain days -- but more on them, later!). Since the Background Vocalists recorded their parts after David Cassidy laid down the lead track, this is believed the be the "definitive" song list! Keep in mind that this list does not include David's solo work. As more information is shared with us, we will share it with you! (Special thanks to Lisa for providing corrections!)

Be sure to check back regularly, for brand new exclusive interviews with
Bob Claver, Sandy Dvore, Tom Bahler, Ron Hicklin, Jackie Ward, and many more!!
