Classic Episodes: The Partridge Family – Soul Club

Partridge Family Soul Club

In Soul Club, one of the most out there episodes of seventies classic The Partridge Family, on a plucky, ambitious road trip, the singing family finds itself mistakenly booked into a black nightclub in Detroit. Complication: The club’s broke owners (Richard Pryor and Louis Gossett Jr.) will lose their business if the night’s turnout isn’t huge.

When only one customer shows up, Mrs. Partridge decides to throw a block party the next day and charge admission. Keith (David Cassidy) even writes a song for the occasion, declaring, “It’s sort of an Afro thing.”

Partridge Family Soul Club

Everyone from local merchants to a Pantheresque group in black berets attends the event, and the club is saved. This may be the most outlandish episode in our classic episode features; it’s certainly one of the best-intentioned.

Original Airdate: January 29, 1971
