"Rosewater has always been my favorite ONJ song. It took me years before I realized the song was told from the point of the house named Rosewater. On this CD I found out why. On other CD's it is edited. Here you get the COMPLETE version. Worth every penny of it."
The start of her country phase

"Olivia's first two Australian albums owed more to pop and folk than they did to country. With this third album, Olivia moves firmly into seventies pop-country territory. Note that the original album releases in Britain and America did not follow the Australian track listings.The album opens with Take me home country roads. This song had been a huge American pop hit for its writer, John Denver, but did not chart in Britain - I don't even know if it was released there as a single. Olivia's cover became a UK top 20 pop hit, deservedly so. Other covers here include Amoreuse (Kiki Dee), You ain't got the right (Dr Hook) and If we try (Don McLean).Let me be there, the title track, was a huge American hit. Brotherly love is another fine upbeat song. Most of the other original songs are ballads including Rosewater, which Olivia wrote herself. This is a lovely album, which might be regarded as essential for Olivia's fans if it weren't for the fact that all the tracks except Brotherly love appear on the British compilation 48 original tracks."
