David Cassidy is David Cassidy's first U.S. album released in 14 years and was his only release on the now-defunct Enigma Records. The album was released in 1990 with the featured single, "Lyin' to Myself." "Lyin' to Myself" was the first top-30 hit for David Cassidy in eighteen years.[1] The album reached 136 on the Billboard charts.[2]

David Cassidy was released only on cassette or compact disc in the United States, although vinyl editions were available in Europe.

Shortly after the release of David Cassidy, Enigma Records would go bust, leaving David Cassidy to once again change record labels.

1990 Tour[edit]

David Cassidy performed a series of concerts in 1990 to support the album; his warm-up act was a stand-up comedy routine by Danny Bonaduce, his old Partridge Family co-star. Bonaduce credits David Cassidy for helping him out of one (of his many) dark times by inviting him on the tour.

Promotional videos[edit]

A music video was produced and released for the single "Lyin' to Myself". The video features David waiting in the terminal of New York's Grand Central Station.
