A couple weeks ago, I appeared on Youngstown's WFMJ Midday news with anchor Jennifer Brindisi. Immediately afterword, I was called by the Vindicator, who wanted to put together a feature story on the book. The article ran today. Here's a scan of the hard copy, and I've also included the full article from the online version as well. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/2kIh3tq
There is still one more photo from Henry Diltz available, and some other offers to look at as we head for the final 2-days left in the campaign.
Henry Diltz offered a total of 11 photos for the campaign. This is the one remaining photo yet to be seen. It is David with his beloved dog, Bullseye.
If anyone would still like to pick any of the previous special offers, they are back on the table through the close of the campaign. Each 8 X 10 photo is $35 for new backers, and $30 for current backers. Henry also offered us a limited number of signed 11 X 14's as well. Of the limited quantity offered, there are only 4 slots left. The signed versions are $225 for new backers and $195 for current backers. Please send me a note if you choose the 11 X 14 signed version so I can confirm that there is availability.
For our final offer, we have the "Whale Song" Bundle. You get a lyric sheet commemorative of "Whale Song" along with one of the hand-written lyric sheets, written and signed by Marty Kaniger, for $250. These are quite special in that BOTH of the songwriters who wrote this song have signed BOTH the commemoratives and the hand-written lyric sheets.
"Whale Song" was one of the rare times Shirley Jones sang solo on the show, and certainly the most memorable. It has become one of the most-requested unreleased songs. The story behind "Whale Song" is also one of the most intriguing stories behind any of the Partridge Family songs! Guaranteed to surprise and engage!
Thank you, my good friends, supporters and incredible songwriters, Marty Kaniger and Dan Peyton for this one! We are so grateful!
This is the 2nd of the final three photos that will be offered during the final week of the campaign, courtesy of Henry Diltz.
This great shot of David was taken at his home while hanging out with Henry by the pool. The photo is from 1973, and it's one of the session outtakes for David's "Dreams Are Nuthin' More Than Wishes" LP--the 3rd Cassidy solo album, and the one that reflected David's real personality and musical interests at that time.
For new backers, pledge $35 and you will receive an 8 X 10 high resolution print, or in Henry's EXTREMELY rare offer, you can choose a signed 11 X 14 for only $225! If you are a current backer, you can add the 8 X 10 to your pledge for only $30, and the signed 11 X 14 for only $195! THE SIGNED 11 X 14'S ARE LIMITED TO ONLY 3!
This 48-hour offer is good until midnight, May 29, 2015! We need to put the campaign OVER THE TOP! We are at 92% of our funding goal with three days to go! Hop on the bus, everyone! Let's publish "When We're Singin'!"
Today I spoke with Henry Diltz.
He said in no uncertain terms he wants to see this campaign WIN!
In an extraordinary gesture, Henry has offered three more photos for the final week of the campaign, to be offered in the coming days, beginning today! But here's the most unbelievable part:
Mr. Diltz has graciously offered a select number of additional SIGNED 11 X 14's!
I have to tell you my friends, after seeing these photos myself, they are far more gorgeous and extraordinary in print, and Henry's personal signature is INCREDIBLY striking in a way that I have never seen before.
Diltz is world-renowned as the foremost photographer of the music industry during the late '60s, early '70s and beyond. He has photographed Paul McCartney, Cass Elliot, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Monkees and that's just the beginning! You will never see another offer like this.
This photograph of David Cassidy captures David in his most quintessential look of the decade. It is the face of an icon. It makes us smile. It's the essence of the young and hopeful David Cassidy whose voice has kept an entire generation following him.
For new backers, pledge $35 and you will receive an 8 X 10 high resolution print, or in Henry's EXTREMELY rare offer, you can choose a signed 11 X 14 for only $225! If you are a current backer, you can add the 8 X 10 to your pledge for only $30, and the signed 11 X 14 for only $195!! But hurry--
THE SIGNED 11 X 14'S ARE LIMITED TO ONLY 3!
Not only are these photos a gorgeous keepsake for fans, but they are an INCREDIBLE investment to collectors! The value on one of the signed 11 X 14's is TRIPLE the actual cost! Your value goes up the second you buy it! Please remember: a signed 11 X 14 Henry Diltz goes for $500-$600 out of his studio!
This 48 hour offer expires May 28 at the stroke of midnight! (EST) Hop on the bus, everyone! Let's publish "When We're Singin'!"
This is another Henry Diltz offering exclusive to our campaign to publish "When We're Singin'!" This great shot of David is an outtake from his 1976 "Home Is Where The Heart Is" LP! "Home" was the second of three solo LP's released by RCA during the mid-70s, post-Partridge Family years.
The photo pictured here is a stunning 8 X 10 shot of David taken by Henry Diltz! New backers can own this shot with a minimum $35 pledge, and current backers can get it for the discounted price of $30 by simply increasing their current pledge. Thanks, Henry!
