Toomorrow is the soundtrack from the 1970 film,[1] featuring the band Toomorrow with Australian singer Olivia Newton-John (her first major release album). The film was a sci-fi musical mix directed by Val Guest and was Newton-John's second movie. It was Don Kirshner's less successful follow up to his work with The Monkees.[2]

Band members of the band Toomorrow were Olivia Newton-John (vocals),[3] Karl Chambers (drums), Ben Thomas (guitar, vocals) and Vic Cooper (organ, piano, saxophone, guitar, recorder).[4]

According to Newton-John's biographer Tim Ewbank, Bruce Welch tried to rescue this album by bringing in new, but well established British songwriters, to reconstruct a mk2 version of this album. Due to the knock on affect this would have had on the film version, requiring substantial and costly re-filming this idea was shelved. One 7" single with picture sleeve was taken from this album on RCA Records. Later on, a more commercial non-album follow up single by Toomorrow was recorded by this band on Decca Records, which was produced by Bruce Welch.[citation needed]
