The Definitive Collection

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Many Donny Osmond collections have appeared over the years, but none have combined his early and latter-day hits with the biggest Osmonds singles and his duets with Marie. This Definitive Collection, appearing in the wake of Donny's triumphant appearance on Dancing with the Stars, is the first to do exactly that, and while it has a couple of curious selections -- "Soldier of Love" is represented by the U.K. 12" mix, "Crazy Horses" is a solo version, not the Osmonds -- it is easily the best and most comprehensive Donny Osmond retrospective ever assembled.

    A Definite Must Have For Your Music Collection

    This CD features Donny Osmond hits from his early years through his adult years - a definitive collection. If you only have one Donny Osmond CD, this would have to be the one.

    Although I enjoyed The Osmonds and Donny when they were hot in the 70's, I really enjoy their "adult" music more. Donny's voice is one of the best in the industry; he could sing anything and it would sound great.

    My favorites on this CD are "Soldier of Love," "Sacred Emotion," "Any Dream Will Do" (from Joseph & the Technicolor Dreamcoat), with the best two being Donny's rendition of the Osmond classic "Crazy Horses" and the smooth jazz sound of "Breeze on By." While I enjoy "Puppy Love" I love it best with his adult voice.

    Do yourself a favor and when you pick up this CD, get a couple more that I have recommended - you will be very glad you did.
