There's no way in the world I can feel the same blues the way I used to. When I play in Chicago, I'm playing up-to-date, not the blues I was born with. People should hear the pure blues - the blues we used to have when we had no money.
Muddy Waters

WHAT DOES UP-TO-DATE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Up to Date

The Partridge Family's second album, Up to Date, was released in February 1971. It contained such hits as "I'll Meet You Halfway" and "Doesn't Somebody Want to Be Wanted". The album reached #3 on the U.S. Billboard album chart and #1 in Canada on the RPM national Top Albums chart. The musicians were Hal Blaine on drums, Joe Osborn on bass guitar, Mike Melvoin on keyboard, Dennis Budimir and Louie Shelton on guitars. As with all Partridge Family albums, it was produced by Wes Farrell at Western Recorders, studio 2 in Los Angeles. Up to Date features David Cassidy's first contribution as a songwriter. Cassidy penned the song "Lay It on the Line" with Wes Farrell. The song features a strong guitar track. The album cover was designed in the form of a calendar indicating the birthdates of the family, which were the actual birthdates of the cast members. The album also included a bookcover. This was the last album to feature Jeremy Gelbwaks as Chris Partridge on the cover, as he left the show soon after its release.
