Background: Let Me Be There was the third album by Olivia Newton-John and her first to have any significant chart success, reaching #37 in the UK and #54 on the U.S. charts, helped by the title track, which reached #6 on the U.S. singles charts. gave Let Me Be There a 4 star review:

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. … It’s early Newton-John, a bit naïve and far from the sophistication of her Warm and Tender release on Geffen, but it works, especially because it contains her first two hit records.
