• The 1970 Sci-Fi Musical Toomorrow Was the Brainchild of Music Impresario Don Kirshner and James Bond Film Co-Producer Harry Saltzman
• Kirshner Embarked on a Lengthy Talent Search to Find Members for the Rock Group in the Film Also Entitled Toomorrow, Whom He Envisioned Would Follow the Same Path to Success as Kirshner’s Previous Creations The Monkees and The Archies
• But the Film Flopped, Victim of a Lame Script and Concept (Toomorrow Was Going to Save a Race of Aliens Called the Alphoids from an Existence- Threatening “Sterility of Sound”)
• But Kirshner’s Eye for Talent Remained Sharp, Because Toomorrow Included a Budding Girl Singer Named Olivia Newton-John
• Also Songs by Mark Barkan, Richie Adams and Hugo Montenegro
• As a Result, Original LP Copies of Toomorrow Command Prices from Outer Space
• Now, Real Gone Music Is Reissuing Toomorrow on Vinyl for the First Time
• Includes Added Liner Notes by Joe Marchese and Photos
• Purple Vinyl Pressing
• Bubblegum Psych Sounds from the Group That Was Too Much, Too Morrow

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 bubblegummeets-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, with the original record commanding prices that are truly from outer space. Our Real Gone release marks its first LP reissue, pressed in purple vinyl and featuring notes by Joe Marchese. Like the cover says, “Launch out on a musical cosmic trip with the new ‘Toomorrow’!”
