Crossword Puzzle is the seventh and penultimate studio album by The Partridge Family. Released in June 1973, it was the last Partridge Family album to chart in the US, entering Billboard's Top LP's chart in July and peaking at no. 167 in its second of just five weeks in the Top 200. Bell Records, losing faith in the group after oversaturating the market with product, chose not to release a US single from the album, though "Sunshine" was released as a single in Japan.
The LP cover featured a crossword puzzle, with the answers given inside on the dust sleeve. As with previous release The Partridge Family Notebook, the American album cover of Crossword Puzzle included no group photo, but did feature small black-and-white photos of Shirley Jones (at left) and David Cassidy (at right).
In 2003 the album was released on CD on Arista's BMG Heritage Records label.
All tracks, except "It's A Long Way To Heaven", "Now That You Got Me Where You Want Me" and "Let Your Love Go", were featured on the TV show (mainly from Season 3).
