For those in the almost-40 crowd who aimed their first celebrity crush at David Cassidy, the arrival of Then and Now is almost as much fun as chewing two pieces of Super Bubble at once.

For those in the almost-40 crowd who aimed their first celebrity crush at David Cassidy, the arrival of Then and Now is almost as much fun as chewing two pieces of Super Bubble at once. Among the 15 tracks found here are such Partridge Family favorites as "I Think I Love You" and "I Can Feel Your Heartbeat," solo hits "Cherish" and "Rock Me Baby," and some surprise oldies, including "Do You Believe in Magic." While the trip down memory lane is succulent, fans should be aware that all of the selections here are newly recorded by Cassidy—not necessarily a bad thing, since the 51-year-old remains in fine voice—but for those who remember every nuance of these favorites, some things are better left untouched by time. Still, a guilty pleasure worth a giddy spin around the block.—CT
