Olivia Newton-John : Olivia Newton-John
Australian/British saccharine pop singer Newton-John did a cover version of Richard Manuel's "In a Station" in 1971, first released on this self-titled UK debut. The album also featured a cover of "If Not For You" which it is alleged that Dylan particularly liked.
Olivia Newton-John was produced by Bruce Welch of The Shadows; and John Farrar of The Shadows plays all guitars, and Brian Bennett plays drums. Herbie Flowers and Dave Richmond share bass duties. It sounds like Flowers' fluid style on "In A Station".
Newton-John's "In a Station" can be found on several albums and compilations, e.g. If Not For You (1971, Uni 73117), Banks of the Ohio (1975, Festival L 34320), Olivia Newton-John (1973, Festival L 45377/8), Crystal Lady (1974, EMI 6500), ONJ: Twin Best Now (1992, EMI 732122), and 48 Originals (1994, European CD).
