Olivia Newton-John - Totally Hot (45th anniversary)

On November 17, 1978, MCA Records (USA) released Olivia Newton-John's album Totally Hot.

The ten-track Totally Hot was produced by her longtime collaborator John Farrar and included two major singles. The sultry “A Little More Love" reached No.3 in the US, No.4 in the UK, and the Top 10 in eight other countries, including No.2 in Canada. “Deeper Than the Night” peaked at No.11 on the Billboard Hot 100, No.4 on its Adult Contemporary chart, and No.7 on the AC chart in Canada.

Other highlights of the LP included the funky title track, the heartfelt ballad “Never Enough” and a truly raucous cover of the 1966 Spencer Davis Group staple “Gimme Some Lovin’.”

The album peaked at No.7 in the US pop chart, No.4 country, No.7 in Australia, and No. 30 in the UK. It hit the Top 10 in Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. It immediately went gold in America on release in November 1978 and progressed to platinum just a month later.

I pre-ordered mine several weeks ago. I'm listening to the new Apple Digital Remaster via Apple Music.

This person has assembled a lot of interesting facts, interviews, and clips from Olivia’s Totally Hot album. I love the interviews with the studio engineers from Malibu’s Indigo Ranch Recording Studio who recall what it was like working with Olivia on this album.
