1978 Shaun Cassidy – Under Wraps

Under Wraps was the third studio album from Shaun Cassidy, released in 1978. Less successful commercially than its two predecessors, Under Wraps was an early indication that Cassidy’s popularity was beginning to lose momentum, as the album barely cracked the top 40 on the US Billboard charts, peaking at #33, and scoring no major hit singles. “Our Night” peaked at #80 on the US Hot 100.

The album features the song “It’s Like Heaven”, which was co-written by founding Beach Boys member Brian Wilson, along with Rocky Pamplin and Diane Rovell. This would mean Wilson would have contributed musically to an album by both Cassidy brothers, as he also co-wrote the song “Cruisin’ to Harlem” on the album Getting It in the Street by David Cassidy, Shaun Cassidy’s half-brother.
