It contains some cover versions, including John Sebastian's "Daydream" and Peggy Lee's "Fever". David Cassidy also did his version of the Partridge Family song, "Summer Days".

Unique to this album is the fold out cover and the hand-written cover notes by Cassidy commenting on why he chose each song. The album made #1 on the UK album charts in 1973 and was in the best seller lists in Germany, Australia and South Africa.
