Album Review

Former teen idol David Cassidy's second solo album for Bell Records is an attempt at blue-eyed soul that, for the most part, works well. Rock Me Baby was more expressive than anything he was allowed to record on the Partridge Family sessions. These 11 tracks show off Cassidy's vocal range (and his personal taste in music), but there's nothing as catchy here as on the Partridge Family's albums; but, then again, that was the point. Rock Me Baby doesn't contain monster hooks that are impossible to get out of your head, but the combination of blue-eyed soul and album rock trappings (utilizing a wah-wah pedal) sound almost experimental coming from Cassidy. Although Partridge Family associate Wes Farrell provided the production, it's obvious Cassidy had input in the direction and material. The highlights include the Cassidy-penned "Two Time Loser"; "Song for a Rainy Day," co-written with Kim Carnes; and a cover of the Rascals' hit "How Can I Be Sure," which suffers from a 5th Dimension-like arrangement, but includes one of Cassidy's most expressive vocal performances on record. The album's finest moment overall is the kickoff track, "Rock Me Baby," which has Cassidy transforming into Electric Warrior-era T. Rex.

Across This Great Nation

The 2nd solo album off of the heels of "Cherish", a remarkable album in it's own right. This is the natural progression of the 1st solo album. Little more edgier, much more personal. The precursor to the fabulous "Dreams Are Nuthin' More Than Wishes....". The hard rocking groove of "Rock Me Baby" stands toe to toe with such ballads as "Some Kind Of A Summer", "Soft As A Summer Shower" & "Song Of Love". From the first note to the last, this album stands own it's own as a testament of Cassidy's indendence on his own feet, and the beginning of his own terms as a recording artist.

My favorite record as a teenager

Every song on this album I still enjoy listening to. I can still remember the words to every song on it. I just had to purchase this and have enjoyed listening to it. I don't know what it is about Cassidy but he's one of my favorite performers along with the king of country George Strait. I liked country back then too but have always had a special place in my music taste for Cassidy and have never enjoyed a record more than this one.
