    Stunning vocal harmonies on this lp. A few minor pop singles (one was a hit in the UK oh lori reached #8 and the other a minor hit in Australia in seabird cracking the top 100 at 96). Sad songs was recorded by Olivia Newton John as well. This deserves to to in every collection along with their former group barnaby bye from 1974 and 75.

      A minor classic, all in my opinion. On the radio only 'Oh Lori' was played unfortunately. Great arrangements and wonderful playing.
