This is from the period when she was the quiet shy girl that would appear seated upon a stool on Top Of The Pops to perform her chart hits.
This was before the dizzy days of her tremendous success starring in movie greats such as 'Grease' and 'Xanadu' which would go on to change her forever. A fabulous collection of ten beautiful songs - penned by the likes of John Farrar who would go on to write regularly for Olivia plus Hank Marvin, and including one from herself!
This marvellous track listing includes the record that sold this album; the hauntingly beautiful and melancholic 'Sam' which captures the innocence of the unique 70s ballad, and was her massive hit from We are even treated to a very, very slightly extended version of this, where the yearnings for her much needed Sam go on and on This track is nicely placed as the second song on side B of the vinyl LP. This album captures Olivia in a classic period; both in her career and popular music.
The title track didnt chart as a single but certainly deserved to. Multi layered harmonies of Olivia's trademark crystal clear vocals thread their way through the whole album.
Also included is pretty ballad 'Sam' her first top ten hit in 6 years although probably the most forgettable track in this collection.

Don't Stop Believin'.When Olivia Newton-John released Don't Stop Believin' in , she was still firmly in contemporary country territory. Grease and Xanadu were yet to come, and the slut she was to become with Physical was worlds away. Don't Stop Believin' has some great material, with songs such as "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Sam", but much of the album just kind of sits there .
