Monday/ Olivia Newton-John (1948-2022)

I got good Kentucky whiskey on the counter
And my friends around to help me ease the pain
‘Til some button-pushing cowboy plays that love song
And here I am just missing you again
Lyrics from the song Please Mr Please, from the album Have You Never Been Mellow (1975)


Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits (1977) was the very first vinyl record that I had bought.
I no longer have the vinyl record, but I do have the songs in my digital collection of .mp4 songs.

ONJ’s Greatest Hits— the vinyl record pressed for the South African market.
The selection of songs was a little different from the Greatest Hits sold elsewhere in the world. It had ONJ’s rendition of John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’,  as well as her recording of the 19th century American murder ballad ‘Banks of the Ohio’.
