Olivia Newton-John: Let Me Be There

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, 1 March 1974

THERE ARE A LOT of interesting things about this album. First, it features 'Let Me Be There', one of the most pleasant surprises of early 1974 and one of the strongest productions yet in the newly emerging field of female MOR/pop. A great song, full of inspired touches such as the recurring bass voice that, for me, makes the record. And second, 'Let Me Be There' is the only new song on the album.

Total word count of piece: 366
