    Yeah the US CD Maxi only has the “Club Mix” and “A Deep Need For Love Mix”. Enjoy Spring 🙂 The “Club Dub” and “The Underground Mix” are vinyl only.

    Olivia just put out a staement that she is postponing her Las Vegas residency because her sister Rona Newton-John has been diagnosed with brain cancer. Such sad news.

    Thank you so much, I’m a huge Olivia Newton- John fan, and I adore this. I have her European 40th anniversary Box set. Paid a fortune for it, but worth it all the way. Thank you for posting this.

    You’re welcome Timothy. Yeah the 40th Anniversary Japan box set is a real gem and worth every penny 🙂

    Paul,
    Thank you so much for posting these mixes! This is one of my absolute favorite Olivia songs. LOVE all the mixes! You’ve made them sound PERFECT! I just read about Rona’s diagnosis also, very sad news. This is the very first I had heard about Olivia’s Vegas residency, and I LIVE here and work for Caesars Entertainment who owns, The Flamingo, where she was said to be performing during Donny and Marie’s absence. I hope to hear more soon, I will definitely see her show if the residency ever happens. I’ve wondered why she didn’t already have a residency here, I guess the timing wasn’t right.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Chris. I always wanted Olivia to have a residency in Vegas it’s been in the works for a long time. You are correct she was to perform during Donny and Marie’s absence hopefully all will be ok with Rona and she will be able to fulfill her residency in Vegas.

    Hi Paul,

    Another one of my favorite 12″ from the 90’s. I love that she worked with Giorgio Moroder and what resulted. My two favs, Olivia & Donna (Carry On) working with Giorgio in the 90’s, what more can you ask for. I always loved the remixes & the dubs on this single, great music. Paul, I know that you are probably the biggest Olivia fan out there, so thank you very much for posting this, it’s a gem & and so are you.

    A Deep Need For Love mix… Possibly the best deep house remix of all time???

    Thank you again for your excellent service.

  9. G.H. Weekes Says:

    Is it possible for you to post the single mix of “Deeper than a river”. It seems to be very rare.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I would G.H. but I don’t think it was issued on vinyl.

    [Reply]

  10. G.H. Weekes Says:

    Thanks for the response! I think it was issued as a CD single, though. Do you only post tracks were released in vinyl form?

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I have the CD single G.H. but I only post vinyl rips on this blog.

  11. G.H. Weekes Says:

    Okay, here comes the desperate, needy part of this conversation: I don’t suppose you could e-mail me the single mix as an mp3, could ya, could ya, could ya?

    [Reply]

  12. Gene Says:

    Hi Paul.
    I’m trying to download your mp3 files but I’m asked about a user and a password to do that. Could you help, please?
    Thanks in advance.

    Gene.
