David Cassidy - Cassidy Live! (1974)

Well, last night was a dream come true for me! After 40 years of waiting to see him in concert, I finally got to see David Cassidy perform!!! He and Davy Jones both performed in Dallas (actually, Grand Prairie) last night and it was just wonderful! Davy Jones was on first, and he sang lots of Monkees hits, his own singles, and a song from "Oliver!" He was very entertaining and full of jokes - just adorable! After a brief intermission, David Cassidy came on and he took us on his "musical journey", singing songs that inspired him when he was a boy, some Partridge Family songs, and some of his own singles. Of course, there weren't any girls fainting and it was all quite civilized - after all, most of the audience was made up of middle-aged women. But, some women did run up to the stage and tried to touch them, and a couple even got David to sign some stuff. Yours truly was not even close to the stage, but I did have a good view and was enthralled just the same. So, since I am still floating on Cloud Nine from finally seeing David Cassidy, I thought I'd post his live album from 1974 in Great Britain. I actually recorded this about a year ago as a request for someone, but did not post it then, but here it is now!
