"My husband offered to get this dvd for me and I jumped at it. Sadly, I already have it.
Anyone who has already purchased the Osmonds Musikladen DVD should save their money and skip this one. It's just a rerelease. If you've never purchased the Musikladen DVD - buy this one - it's cheaper!
As much as I love the Osmonds, I'm not thrilled with this DVD or the fact that the customer is duped into buying a rerelease. Will definately look further into the next DVD purchased."
To be 14 again!

"Remembering the Osmonds from my teenage years, I was thrilled to find this DVD since it is a tape from a 1972 TV performance. This brought back all my fond memories of these guys at their prime and the height of my teenage obsession. The production values aren't great (remember - this IS a 1970's TV show!), but it was so much fun seeing everyone's 'baby faces' and hearing so many of my favorites.
The biggest selling point was the capture of the "Tambourine/Dance to the Music" medley - something I've only had on an aging audio tape recorded from a TV appearance. I knew these guys were talented, but after all the media jokes, living through the "D&M" years, this was a welcome reminder of just how special they were.
I highly recommend this to any 70's era Osmond fan!"
Thank You So Much!!A+++++++++++++++++++++

"This is a must for all Osmond Fans everywhere!! It brought back so many memories from when I was a teenager. I was in love with Donny, but his whole family is just awesome!!! So, if you are a die hard Osmond fan, you will surely want this DVD in your collection."
Not nearly as good as I remember

"I was a huge fan of The Osmonds back in the day. In fact, I can even remember when they changed their name from The Osmond Brothers to The Osmonds. But, times have changed and so have I. I did not realize how much until I started watching this DVD. I had been looking forward to seeing Donny again.
What a shock I received when I placed this into my DVD player! The costumes that were hideous even back in 1972, were even more so now. They put in a tremendous effort and much work into their performance. But, all in all, their music is just not nearly as good as I remember. I watched the first five songs, then I just couldn't handle it any more. Simply put, it was bad. This DVD had poor sound and picture quality. The music was watchable until Donny sang Too Young. Than it became unbearable.
Some things should stay in the archives or the vault or wherever they keep historical recordings. Some things are better as cherished memories that are best not relived."
