Olivia Newton-John - Have You Never Been Mellow RIAA Certified Gold! Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By Pup

In 1975, hot off the heels of her Nashville-dividing Country Music Grammys, and boasting her second consecutive #1 Billboard pop single in its title track, Olivia released Have You Never Been Mellow. This album reveals why Olivia Newton-John was "Pop's Princess" well into the Awesome80s: Her crystal voice weaves itself around these 11 melodies with warmth and soothing sweetness. Her cover of the Hollies' "Air That I Breathe" is gorgeous and dynamic - a soft and quiet opening verse leads into a stronger chorus, and when the final chorus climaxes, it's just glorious! "Water Under The Bridge" is an ode to finding strength in yourself after being hurt by failed love. When she ends the song singing "I'm growing up, getting stronger constantly", it's truly cathartic.

Newton-John's famous feminine pipes multiply in beauty when she harmonizes with herself on the choruses of the top-5 hit "Please Mister Please" and the should've-been-single "It's So Easy", with its driving upbeat rhythm section and catchy melody. Dreamy tunes like "Lifestream" and her folky renditions of John Denver covers "Goodbye Again" and "Follow Me" helped establish Olivia's distinctive "breathy" style. And when she sings the classic, John Farrar-penned title track, you really wanna "kick your shoes off, close your eyes" and let this still-touring songbird take you on a trip to mellow land. Highly recommended for those seeking aesthetic beauty and well-arranged pop-rock-folk songs.

"This album is one of Olivia's best! It has a great remake of All I Need Is The Air That I Breathe by The Hollies and Follow Me by John Denver. I can't even begin to say how many bad moods this album pulled me out of. I loved Olivia from her first album and still love her and her music today! Check it out!"
