    An artist well-defined by her hit singles, Olivia Newton-John has had a stylistically varied career, as is illustrated on Back to Basics: The Essential Collection 1971-1992, a set that ranges from her teary ballad "I Honestly Love You" to that bouncy paean to getting horizontal, "Physical." Fans may quibble that such hits as "Let Me Be There" and "Make a Move on Me" are not included, but Newton-John's two greatest-hits albums are out of print, and this is the only collection to combine both her good-girl and bad-girl personae. ~ William Ruhlmann

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (8/92, p.77) - Highly Recommended - "..The combination of drowning-pool eyes, sunny disposition, and quavery breathy vocals cemented her public perception as a benign free spirit forever floating in slow motion through waving fields of corn...Call this a comeback.."
