Pop Focus: The Singing Brady Bunch!

The Partridge Family wasn't the only singing crew on 1970s TV.

Likely inspired by the record chart success of David Cassidy and Shirley Jones, the Brady Bunch kids also got into the act, releasing several not-as-good-as-the-Partridges LPs.

Not that they were completely terrible. "Time to Change" and "Sunshine Day" are pretty likeable bubblegum pop.

As you'll see from the picture sleeves below, several solo Brady's also issued singles.

And, after the demise of the original Brady Bunch show, most of the cast (Eve "Jan" Plumb couldn't participate due to contractual problems) reconvened for 1976-77 "Brady Bunch Hour" variety show produced by Sid and Marty Krofft for more singing and dancing.

Check out the musical side of the Brady's in the pics and clips below.
