Rock Me Baby was the second solo album release from David Cassidy. It was released in 1972 and produced by Wes Farrell on Bell Records. It contains one song written by Cassidy called "Two Time Loser" and a song he co-wrote with Kim Carnes entitled "Song for a Rainy Day". The album peaked at #2 in the UK album charts and featured the #1 single "How Can I Be Sure". The album's title track was recorded around the same time by UK group Brotherhood of Man, but they shelved their release when Cassidy had a top 20 hit with it.[2] The album was reissued on Compact Disc by Arista Records in 2003.
