TopofPops 1972toppops27

Back in 1972, I owned the most peculiar record. It was a compilation, with a track of Crazy Horses by The Osmonds.  It was on an early Top of the Pops LP.  They were infamous for containing poor copies of the original tracks.  I used to buy them in my local Woolworths in Ashby de La Zouch – and they were cheap!

All the tracks were poor, but but during the exciting crescendo, where the Crazy Horses are imitated by a cool electronic organ sound, there features what sounds like a frightened cat.   So instead of, “Crazy Horses – (Screeching Electronic) Neigh, Neigh”, we “Get Crazy Horses – Meow, Meow“.  It did make me laugh!  Fortunately, a little later, I did manage to acquire an original recording. Crazy Horses reached Number two in the UK, and features on many people’s list of:  “Your favourite Number Twos”.  Crazy Horses is on Volume 28 of TOTP that was released in Dec 1972, so this was likely a Christmas buy, if not actually a Christmas present.

By the miracle that is Youtube, I have found the offending track – and you can also compare it to the original, which I think still sounds surprising contemporary. Especially for the Osmonds!
