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.

Allmusic.com gave the album a 4 star review:

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.
