Magic: The Very Best of Olivia Newton-John

UTV Records' Magic: The Very Best of Olivia Newton-John is the best compilation ever assembled on Newton-John's career, largely because it does cover her entire career, hitting every major point from her early-'70s soft country-pop hits, like "I Honestly Love You," through her star-making turn in Grease, selections from Xanadu, up to the Physical era and its fallout. That takes a total of 20 tracks, plus the bonus track of "The Grease Megamix," and that gives a listener nearly everything they need from Olivia. When the biggest complaint is that the collection sequences "You're the One That I Want" before "Summer Nights," it means that this is certainly a collection that can be called definitive.
Glad I bought this one. Even though I've heard some of these since I was a kid I had no idea that Olivia Newton John sang all these. Really nice to listen to in a collection and the sound quality is outstanding. Her voice is really beautiful.
So... where are the first 5 tracks?
Good point.....Where ARE the first 5 tracks??
Where is "Let Me Be There"? This song is included on the complete "Magic" album, but for some reason iTunes did not include this song, and it is not included (as of today, 3/12/09) anywhere on iTunes. Is there a problem getting the rights to this song? I would rate this album five stars if all songs from "Magic" were included. The entire album reflects Olivia's stellar body of work.
