Dame Olivia Newton-John is celebrated with a “Deluxe Edition” remastered release of her double platinum album Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits, in honor of the album’s 45th Anniversary.
Originally released in 1977, the record has sold over 5 million copies worldwide and features her biggest international hits from her 1971 debut through her 1976 album Come On Over.
Among some of the songs featured include all of Olivia’s U.S. Top 40 hits from that era including the #1 singles “I Honestly Love You” (which won two Grammy Awards in 1975 for “Record of the Year” and “Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female”), the Grammy winning “Let Me Be There” (“Best Country Vocal Performance, Female” 1974) and “Have You Never Been Mellow.” Click here to purchase or stream.
“Olivia was unique in the fact that she was so versatile and throughout her career was able to have success across multiple genres,” says Blake Davis, General Manager, Green Hill Productions. “Greatest Hits is a perfect collection showing that diversity from Olivia’s early career. It has been remastered for the first time and includes all iterations of the versions originally released around the world.”
When finalizing the deluxe edition track listing in May 2022, Newton-John said: “It’s hard to believe that it is the 45th anniversary celebration for my first collection of hit 45s. I was lucky enough to have various songs become hits around the world and that gave us the ability to create versions of the album to represent the biggest hits in each country/region. If I remember correctly, there were five international versions released by different labels – USA and Canada; UK, Europe, Mexico and South America; Scandinavia; Japan; Australia and New Zealand.”
Since the world is so much more connected today than it was in 1977, Newton-John and her team decided to merge all of the international versions of Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits into one and create the definitive “Deluxe Edition” of the collection.
A special, limited edition two-color vinyl edition of Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits Deluxe Edition will be available on November 18, exclusively at Target.
In addition to the remastered release, Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits – Japan Deluxe Edition, a deluxe two-disc JCD package featuring her biggest international hits, is now available. It contains Newton-John’s U.S. Top 40 hits from her Greatest Hits 1 and 2 collections including #1 singles “I Honestly Love You,” “Physical,” and “Hopelessly Devoted To You.” This exclusive features a double-sided poster and a letter from Newton-John directly to her Japanese fans.
Olivia Newton-John’s Greatest Hits Deluxe Edition is available now for download and streaming on these platforms.
