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'!"
Offered here as an exclusive Memorial Day special, is the original demo for "I'm on My Way Back Home," courtesy of the Jack Keller archives! The offer also comes with a signed Bobby Hart Lyric Commemorative! An incredibly rare and exclusive offer, and there are only 5 available!
Jack Keller and Bobby Hart teamed up only one time for "The Partridge Family," and this was their offering. "I'm On My Way Back Home" is a fan-favorite and a favorite among insiders who worked on the song and the outstanding 3rd Partridge Family album, "Sound Magazine," on which this appeared!
In the the new book you will get a lengthy story behind "I'm On My Way Back Home," and here, only until midnight on May 31, you can be the recipient of the original demo submitted to Screen Gems by the late, great songwriter Jack Keller and Monkees pioneer Bobby Hart! It is a pledge package for you, from both the songwriters!
Keller was at the top of his game as a songwriter. He wrote music for many movies, and became synonymous in the '60s in writing music especially for television.
This is a $250 offer with only 5 available!! This rare demo will NOT be found anywhere else. It is offered to us from the family of Jack Keller strictly to benefit this campaign. But hurry, because the offer expires Midnight, May 25, 2015.
New backers can open a general pledge at $250 and join in on the excitement, while current backers can simply increase their existing pledge category by $250.
Remember...every pledge moves us that much closer to winning the campaign for publication of "When We're Singin' - The Partridge Family and Their Music!" Hop on the bus now!
Songwriter David Price was involved in writing both "Stephanie" and "All of The Things" recorded by The Partridge Family. The stories behind these two particular Partridge Family songs are priceless, but the very special, poignant story behind David Price and what he did for our campaign is even more heart-warming.
While I was preparing for the campaign to publish "When We're Singin," I asked several of the songwriters to contribute signed items to our rewards packages. I thought it would be exciting to include a few items that highlighted some of the un-released songs, since many of them are fan favorites, so I approached David Price. I asked him if he would consider hand-writing the lyrics for each of his two songs to be offered as exclusive, one-of-a-kind rewards items.
He told me that he was suffering from Parkinson's disease, and that his hands shake a lot. Before he could say another word, I expressed my heartfelt apologies for having asked him to do this, as I obviously didn't know of his condition.
He immediately jumped back in to the conversation to complete his original thought. He told me that he really wanted to do this. He wanted to hand-write those lyrics. He asked me if I was in a hurry because it would take him some time. He was insistent. Not only did he want to hand-write the lyrics, but he wanted to sign the lyric commemoratives, too. He was so flattered to learn that after all these years, fans still really love this music.
So a few months went by, and the hand-written lyrics came in the mail. I couldn't have been more touched. I initially put the lyrics up at $250.00 each but listed the commemoratives separately. I am combining them into two very special packages. The "Stephanie" bundle now includes the one and only hand-written lyric by David Price AND a "Stephanie" lyric commemorative, also signed by Price. You will also get a signed copy of the book, with a souvenir bookmark to go with it and your name published on the website and in the book as a backer of the campaign. "All of The Things" is also repackaged the same way. There is only ONE of each, and are true collector's items. Each Bundle is $250 ($220 without the book.)
Thanks David, for your great heart in supporting "When We're Singin'!" We are forever grateful. http://kck.st/1DSL7zP
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!
