The Osmonds 20 Greatest Hits

1976, I am 9 or 10 years old and see the advert for this record on (black and white) television. I was instantly obsessed and had to have this record, even though we didn’t own a record player. I was a huge Osmond fan and was totally in love with Donny Osmond. Mum took me down to our local record shop to laybuy the record. This was my first ever record. The record shop owners knew this and were very generous in accepting my $0.20 cent a week pocket money payment off the record. I can’t remember how long it took to pay off, but it was some time. As soon as I got it home the poster went up on the wall and stayed there for years. I was lucky to be given a record player for Christmas that year (months after I got the record) and thus begun my love of vinyl. My record still gets played on a regular basis and I love it as much today as I did 45 years ago. Unfortunately the poster is no longer on my bedroom wall but at least I still have it.
