Osmond Brothers Record First Record
for MGM Records
August 8, 1963
The Osmond Brothers, sons of Mr. and Mrs. George V. Osmond, recently recorded their first record album for MGM records entitled “Songs We Sang On The Andy Williams Show.”
The boys’ father, George V. Osmond, is a former resident of Fairview. He was raised in the valley and is a graduate of Star Valley High School.
According to Andy Williams, the popular recording artist and television star, who writes about the boys on the cover of the album, says the boys have a promising career ahead of them.
“Besides their new MGM record contract,” Mr. Williams writes, “they have signed with MGM to appear regularly on the new TV adventure series, “The Travels of Jaimie MacPheeters,” which is scheduled to be aired every Sunday night on ABC-TV this fall.
Mr. Williams explains that he first met the Osmond Brothers when his father, who is in the real estate business in Los Angeles, heard the boys sing and recommended them to him for his TV show. He says that the minute he saw and heard them, he was reminded of when he and his brothers first started singing.
“I put them on the show and they were in immediate hit with the cast and the crew and studio audience.” Mr. Williams says. “But I didn’t know until the following the week when the mail started to come in, how much these boys had captured the hearts of the American public in only one appearance.”
“With the success of the Osmond Brothers on my show,” Andy states, “it was inevitable that they would be asked to record. Their new album, their first, promises to be the start of what looks like a long and tuneful career.”
