Retroseen: The Osmonds Return

The brand new album, Can't Get There Without You, from much-loved American family music group, The Osmonds, saw the band return to the UK charts last Sunday.

For over five decades, The Osmonds brothers have been entertaining crowds across the world and 2012 marks the year of their biggest ever - and final - UK Tour. They are currently in the midst of the 51-date run which will see them play in front of 100,000 people in total.

The Osmonds are pretty unique in their success as a band and as solo performers. They have recorded over 200 albums, selling over 100 millions copies with 50 gold and platinum recordings. They have sold out venues worldwide, breaking box office records and received countless awards; most notably in 2003 when they were honoured by the industry, receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Totalling ten tracks, Can't Get There Without You is the group's first release since 1984 and is full of fresh material reminding listener's how well these brothers harmonise - the years passed have certainly not affected their voices, with beautiful melodies. Some special guest appearances feature on the album, including Jimmy Osmond's daughter, Sophia, who sings on Fall To Fly, as well as Ruth Lorenzo from 2008s series of X Factor.

Here's a short clip of The Osmonds performing I Need You (from their new album), earlier last month at Victoria Hall in Stoke On Trent. (excuse the backs of people's heads!)
