A marvelous showcase for William Schallert as Red Woodloe
4 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Red Woodloe Story" casts veteran character player William Schallert (THE PATTY DUKE SHOW) in the title role of folk singer Red Woodloe, now happy doing odd jobs while only singing in church. The Partridges try to help him revive his career, but fail to reckon with his terrible stage fright, preventing him from singing before a huge crowd. In a nice change, it's Tracy who finally inspires him, giving him the courage to perform that was always within. Schallert demonstrates his versatility by actually strumming his guitar and singing, first the closing lines from "Froggie Went a Courtin'" and later "The Wabash Cannonball," after a brief rendition of "I Can Hear Your Heartbeat" (from THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY ALBUM), composed by Wes Farrell, Mike Appel, and Jim Cretecos, easily one of the best remembered rockers they ever did, heard in its entirety in the very next episode "Mom Drops Out" (also heard in "Why Did the Music Stop?" and "A Partridge by Any Other Name"). In tribute to Red Woodloe, there is a second song, "Find Peace in Your Soul," composed by Bill Dorsey, who wrote four tracks for The Monkees' one and only TV special, 33 1/3 REVOLUTIONS PER Monkey. Unreleased at the time, "Find Peace in Your Soul" is available as a David Cassidy solo recording.
