If Not For You 50th Anniversary

I am incredibly proud to have worked on the Olivia Newton-John "If Not For You" Deluxe Edition celebrating the 50th Anniversary of her 1971 Debut album. I worked on four of the six previously unreleased tracks on the Deluxe Edition CD. I spent several days and hours meticulously working on the vinyl transfer and audio restoration of those four tracks. All four are taken from original fifty-year-old 7" vinyl acetates. Considering the age and limitations of vinyl acetates I think the tracks turned out great. I can't wait for everyone to hear them. Working on preserving Olivia's legacy has been an honor. Below are the four tracks I worked on.

  • - Round and Round
  • - The Biggest Clown (Alternate Version)
  • - Game Of Love
  • - Would You Follow Me (Alternate Version)

Special thanks to Vinny Vero for this opportunity to work on this and further projects. In addition, I would like to thank James Roy who took the time to send me the acetates or else these songs would have been lost forever.

You can pre-order "If Not For You" Deluxe Edition 2/CD and 180-gram vinyl editions below. The release date is September 9, 2022.
