The second installment in the 7Ts label's series of Osbros two-fers, these are the albums that – at least until "Crazy Horses" trampled everything else underfoot – proved that there was more to the combo than those toothsome grins and some candyfloss pop. Opening Phase III, their sensibly titled third album, "Down by the Lazy River" was at least as solid as anything the rival Jackson 5 were then knocking out, and ushers the listener into an album that actually exceeds whatever demands the hit machine might have been making.

2008 release featuring these two classic Osmonds albums on one disc, available for the first time on CD. The Osmonds may have existed in one form or another before and after their massive '70s success but this is the first time in over 30 years that their musical legacy can be experienced in full. Brainstorm (1976) was their ninth album, followed by Steppin' Out a year later…
The Osmonds seventh and eighth albums were originally released in 1974 and 1975 respectively. Both are combined on a single CD for this digitally remastered reissue. Among the hit tracks are the title singles - the No. 1 U.S. hit "Love Me for a Reason" and "I'm Still Gonna Need You" - as well as "Having a Party." This release also includes in-depth liner notes and pictures of many European single sleeves.
The Osmonds 50th Reunion, starring The Osmond Brothers, with special guests Donny, Marie and Jimmy was taped before a live audience at The Orleans Hotel Showroom in Las Vegas. The concert features all 7 siblings: Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, Marie and Jimmy performing many of their chart topping hits. This show marked the first time in over 20 years that the entire Osmond family performed together on the same stage.
Following the breakout success of the Jackson 5 in 1970, it was practically inevitable that a pre-existing quintet of brothers, who had already enjoyed almost a decade in the national spotlight, would follow them to teen idol superstardom. With dynamic youngest brother Donny as a focal point (much like Michael was for the Jacksons), the Osmonds did exactly that, enjoying a run of massive popularity during 1971-1972.
