Customer Review

VINE VOICEon February 22, 2003
The Osmond family's recordings have been reissued off and on for many years now, mostly in the form of less-than-brilliantly-executed Curb CD's, and have yet to be done right, at least comprehensively hit-wise. Even after a box set, some of the hits are still not available on CD.

Unfortunately, missing the opportunity again, this piece from Universal Music takes a step backward in that quest. Though titled "Best of Donnie and Marie Osmond", three (each of which was top-forty so we're not talking minor league here) of the seven charted hits they achieved as a duo are missing, yet two of Marie's solo hits are here. With a total of twelve tracks, there was ample opportunity to include these missing hits instead of the b-sides and album cuts used. To further taint the effort here, if the compilers insisted on tacking on Marie's solo hits to this compilation, then they should have used her never-before-on-CD last pop charting hit, "This Is The Way That I Feel". Compiling these things is not rocket science and while many of the others in the Millennium Collection series are good, basic compilations of most, if not all, of an artist's hits, this one falls flat on its face in that respect.

If you have any of the other D&M collections, you don't need this one. Beyond the faulty track selection, the execution is decent with good sound quality and all tracks in stereo. This piece is a opportunity gone by, falls way short of its promise and offers little incentive to purchase.
