As a long time fan of Donny and Marie (my first, official concert was them and the Osmond Brothers in 1978), I saw the cover and knew it was a photo from the back cover of my favorite 1976 Donny and Marie LP "Donny and Marie New Season." I thought, "Great! There will be some of my favorite songs on there from that LP and the TV show." I was completely wrong. (Note: The clothes on the cover of this CD are also the same ones found on the Donny and Marie dolls that were sold in the 1970s.)
There are certain songs that fans of the TV series would remember. Those songs are not found on this CD. Why? Who put this CD together to label it "their greatest hits" when there are more songs out there by Donny and Marie that are more classic than this and would be considered their greatest hits.
Because they had a variety show for so long, there are some songs that fans would remember more. The songs that should be on this CD that weren't:
"May Tomorrow Be a Perfect Day" (closed the TV show every week)
"A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock and Roll" (my favorite part of the TV show)
"It Takes Two"
"It's All Been Said Before"
My favorite songs on this CD are:
"Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing"
"I'm Leaving It All Up To You"
Which were featured on other Donny and Marie LPs I have.
I hope that in the future, there will be a follow up to this CD with songs that all fans and viewers will remember. For now, Donny and Marie fans will have to use this CD as a substitution.
