Barbara Sigel and Harold Gould
29 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Beethoven, Brahms and Partridge" finds Keith trying to impress his new girlfriend Rachel (Barbara Sigel) by playing her some of his hit songs. Her disapproval is rooted in the belief that his music is frivolous, and can't compare with classical music (she's a cellist with the school band). Keith spends weeks composing a classical cello piece that will be unveiled publicly for a future Partridge concert. The negative reaction doesn't deter Rachel, reading terrible reviews about Beethoven's work, so the undaunted Keith is convinced that his masterpiece needs to be heard by the right people. Harold Gould puts in a nice cameo as Walter Yost, an expert on classical music, who assures Keith that music which makes people happy can be just as important as the more highbrow stuff ("I find your songs charming"). The unreleased featured song (later heard in "Al in the Family") is "I'm Into Something Good," composed by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, a cover of the Herman's Hermits #13 hit from 1964, first recorded that same year as a solo hit (#38) by Cookies singer Earl-Jean.
