icans for years, and as a consequence
has dominated popular culture. Never
has non-dairy cheese been elevated to
such a high art form as it was during
the culturally formative '70s. The
thcrmidorean reaction to the '60s at-
tempted to reinstate the wholesome
innocence of an America that valued
family, not LSD. In order to do this,
the entertainment magnates decided
to return to that age-old institution
of cheesiness that had guaranteed
success to everyone from Tin Pan
Alley to the Little Rascals to
Fabian. As a result, America was
blessed with the Brady Bunch,
Donny and Marie, the Sid and Marty
Kroft puppets, and of course the
Kraft of TV families, the Partridge
With the recent success of Susan
Dey on L.A. Law, Clive Davis, in
all of his infinite pop wisdom, has
decided to capitalize on this with the
re-release of some classic Partridge
material on a new greatest hits pack-
age. The true genius of the record is
not the music, although who could
possibly live without the 34 seconds
of pure pop transcendence of "Come
on Get Happy" or David Cassidy's
meltingly sweet vocals on a cover of
the Association's "Cherish," but
rather it is the most brilliant packag-
ing since the Partridge's own Shop-
ping Bag album which included a
shopping bag inside every sleeve.
The self-deprecating humor that
marks this project is apparent on
first glance of the record. The cover
is a photograph of a Partridge Fam-
ily lunchbox against a Piet Mon-
drian painting, suggesting the prob-
lem of reconciling haute couture
and popular art that all 20th Century
intellectuals have had to tackle. The
Partridges are certainly no exception
to this phenomenon, as is especially
apparent in their monumental re-
working ot Rupert Holmes' "Echo
Valley 2-6809." Then, there are the
memoirs of Danny Bonaduce, the
role model for all alienated, freckled,
red-head eight year-olds. In his tren-
chant essay "My Life as a Partridge,"
Bonaduce explores the source of
teen-star angst and aestheticizes pop-
ular culture: "Tiger Beat magaz'ne,
pooka shell necklaces - I liked it
all, even the bell bottoms," and
"either on stage in those silly red
velvet suits, or just jammin' in the
garage, it was like shooting a rock
video every Monday."
As if Bonaduce's reminiscences
of David Cassidy, Susan Dey and
Shirley Jones weren't enough, the
good folks at Arista have blessed us
with "Pop Quiz: The Hits of The
Partridge Family and David Cas-
sidy." The quiz includes 24 true-
false, multiple choice, and essay
questions that contain nuggets of
priceless information like the fact
that Danny Bonaduce appeared in the
classic T and A flick II.O.T.S.
Considering that the '90s are al-
most upon us, the time is right for a
critical re-evaluation of the '70s.
The Partridge Familys Greatest
hits serves this function, defining a
bygone era where pasteurized Ameri-
can cheese and schmaltz weren't just
foods, they were cultural paradigms.

Distant Voices Still Lives, as in the
work of Nicholas Ray and Yazujiro
Ozu, it has reached its apotheosis.
Despite the film being generally
grim and melancholic in outlook,
it's very funny in places too, thanks
to a wonderful script that has a real
feel for the Liverpudlian vernacular
and the local humor. It's a great
movie, not to be missed. As they'd
say in Liverpool, it's the best thing
since sliced bread.
DISTANT VOICES STILL LIVES is
now showing at Ann Arbor 1 & 2.
