Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Compilation from 'Lovely Livvie', the most successful Australian-born female artist of the '70s. Nowadays, she's best remembered for the movie Grease, but she scored many hits all around the world during her chart reign in the mid-'70s through to the early '80s. 22 tracks including 'Magic', 'Xanadu' (with ELO), 'Hopelessly Devoted To You', 'Have You Never Been Mellow', 'Physical', 'If Not For You' and the bonus track, 'The Grease Megamix (You're The One That I Want/Summer Nights/Greased Lightning)'. Universal.
Australian singer and actress Olivia Newton-John has some of her best vocal performances captured on this compilation album, which includes 22 tracks.
CD contains 1 bonus track.
Olivia Newton-John's Definitive Collection features 22 of her biggest hits, spanning her early country-pop successes like "If Not for You," "Have You Never Been Mellow," and "I Honestly Love You," as well as her later smashes: "You're the One That I Want," "Xanadu," "Hopelessly Devoted," and "Physical." "Magic," "Heart Attack," "Summer Nights," and "A Little More Love" are some of the other songs that best showcased her dreamy, almost ethereal vocals. While the collection puts her mainstream pop-oriented hits near the top of the track listing and leaves her more countrified material for later, Definitive Collection features an ample amount of songs from both periods of her career, making it one of the better Newton-John retrospectives available. ~ Heather Phares
