When this song was first released in November 1971, David Cassidy and The Partridge Family were the most popular recording act on the planet. The entire world had Partridge fever, and me being a very impressionable young boy of ten was right in the thick of it. 'A Partridge Family Christmas Card' quickly became my favorite Christmas album and remains so to this day. With each passing year since that 1971 Christmas of long ago, the first thing I do on Thanksgiving Eve to welcome in the Christmas season is to put on my original vinyl copy of 'A Partridge Family Christmas Card.' I sit down, close my eyes and immerse myself in all of the warm Christmas memories that this music has given me throughout my lifetime. 'My Christmas Card To You' is very close to me and I have longed to record the song. With the recent and untimely passing of David Cassidy, I realized that the time was now. Enjoy my version of 'A Christmas Card To You' and may it make your Christmas memories a little brighter.
