Olivia Newton-John's Albums

Olivia's musical career began in earnest when her 1971 album Olivia Newton-John released on Pye in England. This was issued with minor variations as If Not For You in America. International superstardom came when the American listening public took her to their hearts with the song If Not For You in 1971. There are differences between early US and international releases which can be confusing for collectors and fans alike since the same title is not necessarily the same album, but after 1974 Olivia's solo album releases in the English-speaking world all have the same titles and nearly all the same tracks. Not all of Olivia's early work has been issued in the US - this discography shows the UK/Aus/international releases. Many of the albums have been re-released over the years - the date of first release is shown. The reissues reflect the phenomenal popularity of the mid 70s to early 80s releases, and Olivia's more than thirty year career spans the transition from the 12" vinyl LP to the 5" compact disc in the mid 1980s. Soul Kiss was the first album originally released on both vinyl and CD, and Back to Basics was the last one originally released on both formats.
