So, I'm going through some old things in the basement and I found a box of my wife's old 45's.

I am, wait for it, the proud owner of, wait a little more, of a copy of Crazy Horses by the Osmonds!!!!! I'm certain that in some circles this would have to bring in 2 maybe 3 dollars (or Pesos, not sure).

The most amazing thing about this 45 is that although MGM printed it, it was produced under the Kolob Records label. I've never been so proud of the fact that I know what any of this means.

I dare any of you to top that.

Ok, so there are posts of Lord of the Rings and virginity--sorry, you guys got nothing on an original 45 of Crazy Horses.

Topping because I can.

Very good. You might say the song was a cult hit.

When I first joined the church, I found an Osmond's LP at the store. It was called "The Plan" and had songs about the plan of salvation. I enjoyed it. Wish I knew what happened to it.

I still have my copy of The Plan. So neener neener :)

Honestly Garcon, I'd just as soon have Crazy Horses - you are today's winner.

LOL! What a prize. Lucky you.

That's right up there with finding a petrified dog turd. LOL

A record label called "Kolob Records"? Wow! I'd keep that gem!

A horrible, feeble, pox ridden attempt at "rock'n'roll".
Thank you for reminding me of the existence of this drivel.

Looks like it sells for $8.00 on amazon.
Don't forget tithing, income tax and use tax.

Eight dollars? I was hoping I could get someone to take it without having to give them that much.

Had I been alive at the time, I would like to think that I would have been listening to Black Sabbath Vol. 4.

Oh, archytas! What you said. When I was fourteen in 1972 my favorite album was Black Sabbath #4. That record rocks all day. My father hated it, which was the best endorsement it could ever receive. Right now, at the age of fifty-six, I have that album on vinyl. How awesome is "Wheels of Confusion?" I get a chilly rush up my spine from that song's final guitar solo.

Once I finish looking up what a "45" was, I'm sure I'll be suitably impressed!

my first Walkman. Don't tell me you have to look that up too. I'm I just really that old, or are you just really that young?

At least it wasn't a 78.

Oh, heavens I MUST be OLD !


I STILL HAVE some 78's -- the Mormon Tab Choir Christmas carols. But no Kolob record labels.


And I DO have some original Osmond 45 vinyls.


Remember Donny's Sweet and Innocent?


That was me, back in the day...

I have a whole collection of Osmond LPs, including 45s Down by the Lazy River and The Twelfth of Never by Donny. I even have a few Donny and Marie albums. LOL

Garcon - I can't get that damn song out of my head now - thanks a bunch.

Next time try to find something from Pink Floyd. :)

The first time I saw The Osmonds perform "Crazy Horses" was on a YouTube video, and I watched until the end to see if it was a skit or a parody that would have been on Donny and Marie's 1970's show. That song was so not a good fit for them.

In the 1970's spirit of uncovering the hidden (read: Satanic) message that any given rock band was sending to the youth that could only be discovered by playing the record backwards, I submit that Brother Joseph used the same technique to send us a message about Mormonism when he named Mormon Heavenly Father's planet Kolob, i.e., bolok. The poor, uneducated farm boy just didn't know the correct way to spell bollocks.

Some record stations refused to play Crazy Horses, because they thought they were singing about drugs.

What were they singing about? What were the "crazy horses"?

(I truly don't know!)

I heard them explain it once, but I forget what they said.

Wikipedia says, "The song is claimed to be a protest about the amount of pollution created by cars," but that explanation doesn't sound familiar.

But maybe that's it.
