Making their debut on CD, this is a two on one coupling of the first two albums by Marie Osmond, one of America s foremost all round family entertainers. Includes the world-wide smash hit single Paper Roses . The 'Paper Roses' album hit No.59 in America whilst both In My Little Corner Of The World single and LP reached the lower regions of the Hot 100 in the USA. Both albums have been lovingly remastered by Tim Turan and feature original LP artwork along with in-depth liner notes by Phil 'Mr. '70s' Hendriks and stacks of rare picture sleeves for all the related singles. Marie is still an active performer to this very day and was reunited with brother Donny for sold out shows at the MGM Hollywood Theatre in the summer of 2008.

I was in high school when I got the 8-Track (anybody out there remember those?) version of "In My Little Corner of the World." That was back in the early 1970's. I loved that recording and it got a lot of play time. Now like a lot of my albums and tapes they got lost over the years. I was happy to see this recording on Amazon and I had to have it. I did get around to playing it and it was every bit of the recording that I had. Of course it was nice to have her other songs and they were good as well. I'm very happy with the item and there were no flaws. Also Amazon did it's usual good job of getting the item to me in a timely manner and I used the fee free Super Saver shipping. Again good job.
Aside from the hits "Paper Roses" and "In My Little Corner of the World" (which were covers of hits), Marie Osmond's first two albums are hard to enjoy all the way through. Its not that Marie Osmond is a terrible singer, the arrangements just don't compliment her voice that well. All sentimentality aside, Marie Osmond wasn't the wunderkind that her brothers were. While she had a pretty voice, her renditions of some of these songs come across as vapid. Highly recommended to people who grew up on this music and have a warm place for it but newbies in the 21st century might be a little alienated.
Love this cd just got it growing up in the 70s was great years for me .just couldn't stop playing those love songs back then, and still the same today
