“Physical” became such a monster hit — not just a hit, but a pop-culture phenomenon that was impossible to escape — that it became difficult to view its accompanying album as anything other than a conduit for the single. The thing was, Physical was a damn good record, in many ways one of Olivia Newton-John’s very best. Continue reading “Olivia Newton-John – Physical (1981) [CD-Quality + Hi-Res Vinyl Rip]”

Newton-John has actually made a good thing blander on her 1977 release, in which she milks her tender innocence and soft vocals until all that is left is a drought-driven yearning for substance. She would later learn the rules of rock on Grease and Physical, but here she makes you suffer through an array of drippy ballads and folk music.

The 1976 edition of Olivia Newton-John continues the positive vibe that Have You Never Been Mellow initiated, and though the title track hit number one on the adult contemporary charts, it, surprisingly, failed to go higher than Top 30 pop. A shame because exactly five years later a different song with the exact same title and sentiment went Top Ten for Journey; the comparison is appropriate because Don’t Stop Believin’ is one of the slickest of Newton-John’s country pop releases.

The hit single “Have You Never Been Mellow” carried Olivia Newton-John right back to number one, six months after “I Honestly Love You” brought the singer to that coveted position for the first time. The title track is a masterpiece of songwriting by her producer, John Farrar, an exquisitely pleasant melody with a sunny and peaceful theme. Having covered John Denver’s “Take Me Home Country Roads” on the Let Me Be There album in 1973, Newton-John goes back to the Denver catalog twice on this project, including her beautiful rendition of one of his lesser-known gems, “Follow Me,” with Farrar’s lush country-pop instrumental backing.

Nine beautiful photos accompany the lyrics — Olivia with horses, Olivia in the hay, Olivia with a doggy; following up the phenomenal success of Have You Never Been Mellow was pretty elementary — Newton-John ruled the Top 40, adult contemporary, and country charts at this point in time. From the end of 1975 to early 1976, Clearly Love generated a Top 20 and two Top 30 hits: “Something Better to Do” and “Let It Shine” b/w “He Ain’t Heavy…He’s My Brother,” respectively.

The title track was released in March 1974. Newton-John performed it at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest when she represented the UK. Along with the title track, five other tracks from the LP had been the six shortlisted songs for the UK selection for Eurovision, broadcast as A Song for Europe, 1974. The song that placed second, “Angel Eyes”, was also released as the B-side of the “Long Live Love” single. (The other four songs were “Someday”, “Loving You Ain’t Easy”, “Have Love, Will Travel”, and “Hands Across the Sea”.)

In May and August of 1974, Olivia Newton-John broke through in a big way with this album, the number five title track written by John Rostil, and the number one smash “I Love You, I Honestly Love You” by Jeff Barry and Peter Allen quickly established Olivia as a superstar to be reckoned with. The album is beautifully produced by John Farrar with his friend Bruce Welch of Marvin, Welch & Farrar fame helping out with the production on two of the tracks, Gerry Rafferty’s “Mary Skeffington” and Olivia Newton-John’s sole composition, the acoustic “Changes.” Continue reading “Olivia Newton-John – If You Love, Me Let Me Know (1974) [CD-Quality + Hi-Res Vinyl Rip]”

The American publication of the album by MCA Records used the cover art from Olivia’s 1972 LP record Olivia, which was not released by MCA.

Two years after the single “If Not for You” hit the Top 25 on the Uni label, the MCA imprint re-released most of the If Not for You album, along with Newton-John’s second U.S. hit, “Let Me Be There,” and titled the disc after the new smash. With seductive blue ink shadowing her beautiful face and the word Olivia splashed atop the cover, the company created a collector’s item with the original LP, a respect from the aficionados that couldn’t have been predicted in the ’70s, and well-deserved credibility for the popular artist.

Olivia is the second studio album by the Australian singer-songwriter Olivia Newton-John, released in 1972. Two of its songs were released as singles (“What Is Life” and “Just a Little Too Much”).

Olivia Newton-John’s If Not for You covers Gordon Lightfoot, the Band, Leslie Duncan, David Gates, Kris Kristofferson, Tom Rush, and others. Though “If” is a pedestrian cover of Bread’s song which hit this same year, it would be a mistake to think these are all mere “covers.” The production and arrangements by Bruce Welch and John Farrar are innovative and worthwhile.

Olivia Newton-John skillfully made the transition from popular country-pop singer to popular mainstream soft rock singer, becoming one of the most successful vocalists of the ’70s in the process. The transition itself wasn’t much of a stretch — her early-’70s hits “I Honestly Love You” and “Have You Never Been Mellow” were country only in the loosest sense — yet the extent of her success in both fields was remarkable.

Totally Hot is one of the most fun albums from Olivia Newton John. Total abandon is its trademark, the atmosphere lightened up a bit, and from top to bottom it is one of her most satisfying projects. “Please Don’t Keep Me Waiting” is a girl group all grown up. Is it Newton-John’s voice or Michael Botticker’s synthesizer at the end of the first track? A little jarring for her country audience, but she takes care of them on “Dancin’ ‘Round and ‘Round,” a wonderful country-pop tune and quick about face. As with the Let Me Be There release, her name is prominently splashed on the cover and the tan background suits her well, with the mysterious look with the kerchief on the inside cover as playful as the music.
