Olivia Newton-John, who died on August 8 aged 73, began her career as the sweetheart of country-flavoured pop. It all changed when she donned black spandex for Grease, one of the most successful film musicals of all time. Her new raunchy image found its peak in her 1981 album, Physical. But a diagnosis of breast cancer saw her move to an introspective style and she devoted more time to humanitarian causes.

Her breakthrough came in 1971 when she released a Bob Dylan-penned track, If Not For You, which reached number seven in the UK charts and featured on an album of the same name. Another track from the album, Banks of the Ohio, also charted, its country sound heralding the future direction of her music. It was the country-flavoured album Let Me Be There that finally broke her in the lucrative US market. The eponymous single won her a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocalist.

Back in the UK she sang the country’s Eurovision entry, Long Live Love, in the 1974 song contest - she came fourth in the year Abba won with Waterloo.

The album If You Love Me, Let Me Know established her credentials across the Atlantic. Released only in the US and Canada, it brought her first US number one single, I Honestly Love You. It was the first of seven US number one hits she would have between 1974 and 1977, either in the Billboard Hot 100 or its Adult Contemporary chart. - bbc.com

Midland/Odessa 2017 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Wagner Noel PAC, Midland/Odessa, TX; October 1, 2017. Fairly good audience recording. A bit distant, slight echo.


Olivia Newton-John’s second-time cancer diagnosis has left her with limited mobility and a need for medical marijuana to ease the pain. The 68-year-old was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 at the age of 43. She underwent a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction, which left her with a clean bill of health. But recent back pain that left her unable to walk revealed her breast cancer was back and it had metastasized to her spine.

The singer underwent radiation treatment to help her stage 4 cancer diagnosis, but she said in an interview in September 2017 that her husband’s grown medical marijuana has helped her through the pain. Olivia’s postponed the first half of her concert tour to the US and Canada in May after her back pain was so severe that it left her crippled and unable to walk.The back pain revealed that her breast cancer was back and it had metastasized to her spine, which mean she was at the most severe stage of the diagnosis.

There is a 22 per cent chance of survival after five years for stage 4 breast cancer patients. But Olivia remains hopeful that she will overcome her diagnosis. A social media post from Olivia in May said she would be receiving a short photon radiation treatment to get her back to her work life.

  2. God bless this brave lady and prayers to her in her fight. In her hey day she was likely the sexiest pop star on the planet, but time catches up to all of us. I remember being a party and hearing of a priest friend of ours who was looking at a ONJ cover. We joked about it and he answered, “You can look at the menu without ordering anything.” Indeed.

  3. Olivia is singing in our area this week but I can’t afford to go. Thank you BigO for this. As a cancer survivor myself, the photon treatment was a wise choice, allows a lot of accuracy. Radiation or chemo can leave you weak, even a year after. God bless her. As a typical teen back in the day, I called her “Olivia Neutron Bomb”. My best friend had a monstrous crush on her, and really hated it when I called her that. I guess that’s why I did it.

  4. Olivia is singing this coming Friday locally, but as tix are $54-79, I’m very happy to have these recordings, BigO. As a cancer survivor, I pray for healing for her. God bless her. In high school, my best friend had a crush on her. He hated it when I called her Olivia Neutron-Bomb.

  5. On Olivia’s set, if you’re wondering where some of her hits are, check out the medley. They are nicely done, I think, and the ones that were country-like hits are there, such as “Let me be there”.
