Donny & Marie Osmond - Make The World Go Away (1975)

The Osmonds began as a barbershop quartet consisting of brothers Alan, Wayne, Merril, and Jay Osmond. They were later joined by younger siblings Donny and Jimmy. Their only sister Marie, who rarely sang with her brothers at that time, launched a successful solo career in 1973.

The younger siblings of the Osmond family, Donny and Marie Osmond started performing at an early age. Donny first entered the public eye when he joined his older brothers', "and appeared regularly on"The Andy Williams Show."

Donny and Marie both recorded solo albums before joining forces to star on the 70s TV variety show "Donny & Marie."

The second album from Donny & Marie “Make The World Go Away”. No truly succesful singles but a continuation of their rare beautiful harmonies and interpretations of some classic songs. “IT'S ALL IN THE GAME”, “WHEN SOMEBODY CARES FOR YOU” and “LIVING ON MY SUSPICION” are all standouts with the joyful “TOGETHER” a wonderful uptempo number.
This album showed that the success of the first was not a fluke and that Donny and Marie had staying power. It also laid the groundwork of the even more succesful future to come.
