🎢THE OSMONDS with Showband JUMP at THE ANVIL, Basingstoke UK 24 SEPT 2013🎢

Tuesday 24th September 2013

The day had come, I could not believe that The Osmonds were coming to my town Basingstoke, (it’s a town in Hampshire, UK on south coast).

There are many words to describe a fantastic evening watching the Osmonds perform on stage but I shall just say WOW, WOW, WOW ! They performed songs from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, Stevie Wonder songs & song dedications to Andy Williams.

I had bought 5 tickets for my girlfriends in good seats, Angela, June, Debbie & Helen, nice & close to the stage !

They were very pleased with the seats which was great, close enough to maybe get on stage, only joking!!

First on was musical showband JUMP featuring Emily Penny,

they were great performers and very funny too ! Then we had an interval and back to our seats and time for The Osmonds ! WOW, there I go again but they were fantastic, I couldn’t sit down and danced & sang all night to all the favourites ! I could have stayed all night listening to them if they had offered ! They are & always have been a class act and I hope they are back again soon.

Remembering the Vinyl LP days !!

I remembered they were up there but 2 days ago they came out of the loft ! I’m talking about vinyl LP’s I bought way back ! My daughter wanted them all out of the loft to play on her new player, time has gone right back to the 70’s. Of course all my LP’s are all Osmond related, I do go way back with this

Image

lovely family, have a read of my other blogs !! I discovered something though, I had 2 copies of ‘Donny & Marie’ Deep Purple LP featuring songs from their television show, but why 2 copies, couldn’t remember,

Image

but looking inside the sleeve I found this letter from ipc magazines, then I remembered, to be honest what the competition was about not sure but that’s ok, just glad I saved the letter, but LP was released around 1976.

Look at what I found recently in a Charity Music Shop, Marie’s LP for 99p ! As you see from a previous blog I have a few Osmond vinyls but not this one. I was lucky to find inside details of ‘The Osmonds Fan Club’ & how to join, oh sooo long ago when we all joined that !

wpid-20140302_144615.jpg

I have let Marie know & she ‘favorited’ it on Twitter ! So I have a new challenge when I go shopping, to pop into any Vinyl Shops (more & more are popping up) and try to add to my Osmond Collection, how many will I find I wonder. I have my daughter’s record player to try them on (sure she will not mind ! ) & I can then put them all on my phone to listen to, oh happy days !!

I’ve been away to Bournemouth for the weekend & guess what I found, more Osmond vinyls, the shop had quite a few at Β£1 each ! Couple of them I originally had on cassette so thought I’d get them on vinyl too ! I’ve started listening to them on my daughter’s player & they sound great, just need to transfer them onto my phone next, yippee x Anyone else found any vinyls out there, it’s interesting searching for Vinyl shops & then pot luck as to what they have, good fun, I’ll keep looking x

Image

It’s been great looking back at my vinyl’s, great to keep & play again in years to come ! x

Goodnight Everybody !
