This CD was created to help raise funds for Olivia’s Cancer Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia. It consists of a number of duets with Australian and international guest artists which inspire people touched by cancer and other life hardships.
Delta Goodrem co-wrote the album’s lead track and theme song for Olivia’s recent Great Walk to Beijing fundraiser, titled “Right Here With You”. Other guest artists include Sir Cliff Richard, Keith Urban, Barry Gibb, Jimmy Barnes, Richard Marx, Melinda Schneider, Amy Sky, Jann Arden, Sun Ho and John Farrar.
Sir Cliff Richard was of course instrumental in helping Olivia’s early career in the UK, and John Farrar (also connected with Cliff as a member of The Shadows) wrote and produced many of Olivia’s songs in the 1970s and early 1980s
Belinda Emmett’s lovely solo track was included in memory of Belinda who tragically died from breast cancer in November 2006.
Sunburned Country and Never Far Away can also be found on Olivia’s first duet album, (2) released in Australia.
The CD was initially released in Australia on May 3rd 2008 through Warner Music with a sparse cover. It was then released in the US through EMI records on July 15, 2008 with a better cover image. It was reissued by Green Hill Music in the US in 2011 with another cover image (see above).
