Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. pressing of If Not For You, the debut LP by Olivia Newton-John.
Note: Unlike most copies, this one does not have a cut corner.
About this copy: This copy of If Not For You is an original 1971 U.S. pressing on the Universal City (UNI) label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears or holes.
This album sold poorly when new and most copies were sold in discount bins. This is the only copy we’ve ever seen that did not have a cut corner.
A beautiful copy of a rare Olivia Newton-John LP. This one will likely be your final upgrade.
Background: Released in 1971, If Not For You was the first solo album by Olivia Newton- John. Released without a title in the UK, the album reached #158 on the U.S. charts, and #14 in Australia, but did not chart in the UK.
The album was quickly deleted most everywhere and is hard to find today.
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. …The musicianship by Lou Reed/David Bowie sessionman Herbie Flowers along with Dave Richmond, John Farrar, and the ever present Brian Bennett is top notch. After all her own hit records, hearing this superstar sing so many familiar tunes, and performing them so well, is utterly charming.
