"Let Me Be There" is a popular song written by John Rostill. It was first recorded by Olivia Newton-John in 1973 and included on her album of the same title. The country-influenced song was Newton-John's first Top 10 single in the U.S., peaking at No. 6, and also won her a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocalist. Mike Sammes sings a bass vocal harmony on the song.
"Let Me Be There" was recorded live by Elvis Presley, and sung at many concerts until his death in 1977. Probably the most noted Elvis cover was recorded on March 20, 1974 live at a concert in Memphis, Tennessee. Most of that concert was released on July 7, 1974 as the album Elvis: As Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis. The cover of "Let Me Be There" from that show was also released as track 5 on the Moody Blue album on July 19, 1977. Tanya Tucker recorded the song for her gold album Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone) in 1974 and included on several greatest hits compilations.
