Album Review

There is not much on Shaun Cassidy's debut album that he can claim as his own, other than his style, but that did not stop this album from being one of the biggest-selling solo debuts in history. It is an album comprised almost entirely of remakes, starting with his number one hit single version of the Ronettes' "Da Doo Run Run." He also suffers from comparison to his brother David Cassidy of the Partridge Family, who has an arguably richer vocal range. Shaun was not really in competition with his brother, but a successor to his teen idol throne. With such an aesthetically pleasing set of songs and talent of his own, Shaun Cassidy is a thoroughly enjoyable and old-fashionably hip record. There are two kinds of one-hit wonders, those who made bad novelty music (and are forgotten in fans' embarrassment of ever having listened to them) and those who made good music (meaning that if the singer appears on a daytime talk show, all housewives will stand up and cheer and proclaim their everlasting crushes). Shaun Cassidy is the second kind because he was not ardently cheesy — he made music for the whole family, music that has passed the test of time. The best of the tracks are his take on Eric Carmen's "That's Rock N Roll" and the vocally impressive "It's Too Late."

Customer Reviews

FINALLY!!

YES!! YES!! YES!!!

For years, we've only had that awful GH release, which didn't have some of the gems that are on the full albums. THANK YOU, Shaun's Management, or whoever worked the magic to get the full albums re-released to CD & downloadable.

Okay. Shaun does a lot of covers on this album, but he does them so well, that you don't mind. This album's a real trip down memory lane for those of us who were teenagers in the 70s. Aside from the hits, "Morning Girl" and "Take Good Care of My Baby" are the real gems here.

Now if only we can strong-arm Universal into releasing Season Three of the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries...

AWESOME!!!!!

I can't get enough of this album! Bought it last week and have already listened to it over fifty times!!!! I can't even pick favorites off this album because they're all too good!!!

<3 SHAUN CASSIDY FOREVER!!!!! <3
