Editorial Reviews

Long before she was Sandy, the good girl of Rydell High, or Kira, the Olympian muse of the roller disco Xanadu, Olivia Newton-John was just plain Livvy, the girl singer with dreams of the big time in the 1970 sci-fi movie musical Toomorrow. This little-known motion picture was the brainchild of music impresario Don Kirshner and Harry Saltzman, best known for co-producing the first nine James Bond films with Albert R. Broccoli. And Toomorrow wasn t just the movie s title. After a lengthy talent search, Kirshner and Saltzman assembled the band Toomorrow, whom the music mogul modestly described as the best-looking total group that ever existed. Why the misspelling? As drummer Karl Chambers put it in the film itself, I dig it! We re too much, we re too morrow! At least Kirshner thought so he had visions of Toomorrow achieving the success of his previous creations the Monkees and the Archies, and enlisted the aid of songwriters Mark Barkan and Richie Adams (along with composer Hugo Montenegro) for the movie s bubblegum-meets-rock tunes. But, weighed down by legal problems surrounding Saltzman, and a premise Toomorrow was going to save a race of aliens called the Alphoids from an existence-threatening sterility of sound that was silly even by late- 60s B-movie standards, the movie went nowhere. The soundtrack, however, boasting the nascent superstar Newton-John, has attained serious cult status over the years, and our Real Gone release marks its first reissue in any format, with notes by Joe Marchese and remastering by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in NYC. Like the cover says, Launch out on a musical cosmic trip with the new Toomorrow !

So glad that this finally came out.

Not fancily remastered or remixed, but definitely a welcome addition to an audiophile's collection.

I want to say "sunshine pop" but that feels too generic.

Most die-hard Olivia Newton-John fans know about the Toomorrow soundtrack, but few have ever actually owned a copy. For those who might not know, this album is the soundtrack to the movie of the same name. The movie was a complete flop, and the soundtrack didn't fare much better, resulting in an album that sold very few copies. In 1970, hardly anyone knew who Olivia Newton-John was (her first chart success happened in 1971), so name recognition didn't help to sell any copies, either.

Over the years, as Olivia Newton-John became an international superstar, copies of the album have acquired significant value, selling for hundreds of dollars. When asked about any sort of reissue of the album, Don Kirschner (a co-producer of the film) used to say that it would never happen. After Kirschner's death in 2011, apparently the owners of the rights to the album have agreed to license it for CD release.

So, here we have it. A very nice CD version of the complete Toomorrow soundtrack album. Overall, it sounds quite good. The producers of the CD were apparently given access to the original album master tape (there's actually a picture of the tape's storage box inside the jewel case), and it was given a digital transfer with some care taken to make sure it sounded as good as possible.

That's not to say that it sounds perfect; it sounds as if the master tape might not have been in perfect shape when the digital transfer was made, but, overall, it's really quite nicely done. The transfer appears to be a flat transfer of the tape, with no attempt to adjust EQ or dynamic range. To my ear, it sounds very much the same as the LP pressing, without the surface noise present in most well-played records.

As for the music, let's just say it's not Olivia's best material.

This 1970 soundtrack to a blink-and-you-missed-it Don Kirshner-produced film would likely have remained a quick blip on the pop landscape, had the like-named group, film and soundtrack not featured a young Olivia Newton-John. At the time of the film's release, John was still a year away from breaking through internationally with the Dylan-penned "If Not for You," but she already had plenty of experience under her belt. She'd recorded a terrific cover of Jackie DeShannon's "Till You Say You'll Be Mine" and was gaining notice from club performances when Kirshner (who'd found success assembling the Archies and Cuff Links after being booted as the Monkees' producer) brought her into the group.

The film was part of a deal Kirshner struck with James Bond producer Harry Saltzman, and after funding troubles sank the picture's prospects, it was shelved shortly after release. The soundtrack album was released concurrently on RCA, but given the film's vanishing act, the vinyl quickly followed suit. The group released a follow-up single and B-side on Decca, but Newton-John was soon off to the beginning of her superstar solo career. Real Gone's first-ever reissue of the soundtrack, struck from the original master tape, includes the album's original dozen tracks.

The film stars Toomorrow as the only band with the "curative vibrations" that can save an alien race dying from a lack of emotion. The screenplay is filled with late '60s tropes, faux hipster dialog and science fiction cliches, which, of course, makes it worth screening.

I wonder what the movie was like...the main thing Olivia Newton-John fans might want to know is that she only sings lead on the final song, "Goin' Back" (not the Goffin-King song). I was hoping for more of her voice, though she is audible on most songs.

Not to take anything away from the rest of the group; this is a good disc of early-'70's pop-rock. I want to say "sunshine pop" but that feels too generic. I would like to have given this 3 1/2 stars but Amazon won't let me.

Not fancily remastered or remixed, but definitely a welcome addition to an audiophile's collection. The almost impossible to find soundtracks are pretty pricey - when they can be found for sale - and often scratched and worn. This is a nice CD copy (probably a cleaned up vinyl transfer) that let's us again hear the sounds of this early creation of Don Kirshner. The DVD of the movie (albeit as a PAL region 2) can now be sen as well, after years of being cast off into a trash heap of forgotten projects (due to an illicit promo deal made by one of the producers, leading to its immediate demise upon release). Olivia Newton John can be seen and heard before she hit the big time.
