Wasn't sure about the first few songs because I wasn't an Osmond teenybooper. However the guys mature as the album goes on. So liked it in the end so to speak.

Osmond Anthology! 16 April 2003
By Alan Russo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With a majority of the Osmonds biggest hits from the 70's comes this 28 song collection in cronological order. Although the the sticker says all of their charted hits from the 70's are here, 18 charted hits (UK and US) are still missing in action! Missing are all of Jimmy's hits including the top 40 hit Long Haired Lover From Liverpool. Marie's last top 40 hit, This Is The Way That I Feel, Donny's hits I Have A Dream (Top 50 US hit) and You've Got Me Dangling On A String (US #109 hit, his last in the 70's), and We Can Make It Together was a #68 hit in 1972 for The Osmonds featuring Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, have never seen the light of day on CD! However, Donny's hit remake of I Knew You When is included for the first time.
The sound quality is good and the information provided by Robyn Flans is interesting, but I still would like to know what the original offensive lyric was for Love Me For A Reason! Most of the pictures are black and white except for the awesome colored inlay pic of all the Osmonds!
With all the collections that are out there, including a Box Set, this one is great. Most of the tracks have been released several times for several different collections. I hope there will be a follow-up collection with the "rarities" including the tracks mentioned and perhaps The Donny & Marie themes May Tomorrow Be A Perfect Day and A Little Bit Country. I could think of at least 22 Osmond tracks!

Superfine collection of 70s AM radio champs 13 May 2003
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's difficult to listen to the Osmonds' hits without initially hearing a bubblegum version of the Jackson 5. But given how catchy their songs were (and how much the Jackson's early hits leaned towards bubblegum in the first place), that's more of a compliment than a criticism. The Osmonds were a hugely talented clan, and they spent a decade sharpening their act as a family unit before pop stardom came calling. Ensemble songs like "One Bad Apple" and "Down By the Lazy River" show off their high-wattage star power, and the solo works of Donny and Marie successfully expanded the family's catalog into teen pop and country.
Donny's adolescent voice held many of the same charms as Michael Jackson's, and his Mormon upbringing brought a rather interesting twist to songs such as "Sweet and Innocent," in which he sings "I love the little wiggle in your walk / the way you cuddle on my shoulder / but you're too young to know the score / so come back when you're older" (one has to wonder how much younger the song's object of affection could be than the 13-year old singer!). His hits tended to ballads, including a #1 remake of Steve Lawrence's 1963 hit "Go Away Little Girl" (written by Brill Building legends Gerry Goffin and Carole King), a Teen Beat ready renewal of Freddie Scott's "Hey Girl," adolescent-voiced takes of Johnny Mathis' signature "The Twelfth of Never" and Sonny James' classic "Young Love," and an unusually double-tracked vocal reworking of Nat "King" Cole's 1951 hit, "Too Young." Marie Osmond worked the pop and adult contemporary charts in a country vein with "Paper Roses" and a cover of Connie Francis late '50s hit, "Who's Sorry Now." She even found crossover success on the country charts with "In My Own Little Corner of the World." Throughout the entire Osmonds' catalog the productions are sharp, with lively horn charts, well-crafted string arrangements, and, most naturally, perfectly sung backing vocals.
This disc's generous track count does a stellar job of collecting the family's "Osmondmania" chart highlights. Included are all ten of The Osmonds hits (including self-penned songs like "Down by the Lazy River," "Crazy Horses," and the surprisingly heavy "Hold Her Tight" and "Crazy Horses"), Donny's chart run from 1971-73 (missing are his 1976 recording of "C'mon Marianne" and his 1989 comeback "Soldier of Love"), Marie's successes from 1973-75 (missing is her 1977 hit "This is the Way That I Feel"), and Donny & Marie's duet successes from 1974-76 (missing are 1976's "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing," and 1978's "(You're My) Soul and Inspiration" and "On the Shelf"). Two noteworthy omissions: Little Jimmy Osmond's lone hit, "Long Haired Lover From Liverpool," and Donny & Marie's signature (though non-charting) songs from their variety show, "I'm a Little Bit Country / I'm a Little Bit Rock 'n' Roll" and "May Tomorrow Be A Perfect Day." With a running time of 79:55, however, there was simply no room for bonus tracks!
The chronological track ordering shows just how impressively the Osmond's interwove success in different combinations. Donny and Marie were recording solo hits at the same time they were scoring with duets, and Donny was still helping power The Osmonds on the charts. Robyn Flan's liner notes include generous helpings of quotes from Alan and Donny Osmond, and additional notes by Alan provide some interesting tidbits from the inside of Osmondmania. It all adds up to a stellar single disc Osmonds collection!

so much to enjoy 2 Nov 2007
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Osmond family's greatest hits are showcased very, very nicely on this CD bursting with a generous twenty seven (yes, twenty seven) tracks. The sound is excellent; and this CD is not one that Osmond fans will give up easily. Bubblegum music fans will also enjoy this album.

We get a slew of great hits from The Osmonds: "One Bad Apple" sounds as fresh and exciting today as it did all those years ago. The Osmonds make their rendition of "One Bad Apple" THE definitive rendition. The group gets its energy from all the singers; and little Danny Osmond carries his own very well. "Go Away Little Girl" is sweet and catchy; and I wonder, as another reviewer wondered, just how young WAS that little girl if a thirteen year old Donny Osmond was singing to her! "Too Young" also makes you wonder about the age of little Donny's girlfriend, too. SMILE

"Down By The Lazy River" showcases how well these guys would bat an early 70s light rock number straight out of the ballpark for a grand slam homerun! "Down By The Lazy River" is bound to make you want to dance; and the guitars are great! Whoo-ooo!

Of course, there are several other beautiful ballads with elegant arrangements that make for great songs all these decades later. Just a few of these would have to include "Too Young;" "Puppy Love;" "Lonely Boy;" "The Twelfth Of Never" and "I'm Leaving It All Up To You."

Of course, one could say that these fine young artists primarily covered a lot of songs made famous by other singers; but that would be misunderstanding the group. Sure, some songs on this CD are covers; but WOW are they ever great covers! The Osmond Family could take a song and make it their own using exceptional talent to make ballads new, exciting and bright. Listen closely and you'll hear just how well The Osmonds tweaked excellent melodies to enhance them with care and love.

For example, "Who's Sorry Now" shows how the Osmonds made a famous tune all their own through subtle tweaking and embellishments. In addition, Marie sings "Who's Sorry Now" with extra grace and flair; her timing is slightly different from Connie Francis's version and the musical arrangement seems lighter with more emphasis on a background choir and extra strings. Great! Donny and Marie perform "Deep Purple" as they sing this with a bubblegum twist and a sped-up tempo; Marie Osmond's extra spoken vocals create an extra degree of magic that just wasn't there in the original version.

The liner notes have an informative essay by Robyn Flans; and Alan Osmond adds extra notes--great!

The Osmonds remain well known not just for their work on The Andy Williams Show but also for their fine accomplishments as a group in their own right. This album showcases The Osmonds as a great family group that made hit after hit after hit using their singular ability to create good music and deliver emotionally fresh covers of songs released by other artists.

I highly recommend this CD for Osmond fans, people who enjoy light rock from the early 1970s and those of us who enjoy a "bubblegum" type of light rock.

Great job, everyone!

Same old songs 28 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sure, I love all of these songs. I love the Osmond family but what is here that hasn't been available before? I want the original albums or at least a compilation of songs from 1976-1979. This is great for newcomer fans but what about the people who really are interested in Osmond music! It's amazing that you can purchase original albums from one or two hit wonders but when it comes to a family who have an all-around entertainment background can't get the proper respect and recognition they deserve!

Concise and Well Done 16 Oct 2003
By Phil (San Diego) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the one I was willing to spring for; the inclusion of Joe South's "I Knew You When" made the difference. A single disk collection has to include all of the key hits from their primary chart run. This one does. It also leaves off material from the lower rungs of the charts that would be better suited to a more in-depth compilation.
While this won't fill the gaps in the catalog for those who want a comprehensive series of reissues, you won't find a better single disk compilation of the Osmonds. Unlike some of the earlier cheapie compilations the packaging is as well-done, informative and respectful as anything you might find on the Rhino label. One small detail that makes me smile - the typeface used on the booklet song listing is reminiscent of the typeface on the cover of the Osmonds' self-titled debut.
