The Christmas Collection

The Christmas Collection

by Olivia Newton-John

Overview

Olivia Newton-John's The Christmas Collection finds the singer in fine voice as she interprets some of the season's classic songs, as well as some original material, in a slightly countrified setting. Together with the London Symphony Orchestra, Kenny Loggins, Clint Black, and Vince Gill, Newton-John delivers gently festive versions of "The First Noel," "Silver Bells," "White Christmas," and "Silent Night," among others. While the original song, "Christmas Never Felt Like This Before," is nothing special, Christmas Collection is still a pleasant-enough holiday album, particularly for Newton-John fans.

This is not a Streisand or Toni Braxton's production, so don't expect something produced to be rocketed into the charts. This is a low key compilation for people looking more for quality and class than marketing strategies. Olivia gives us a collection of finest recordings, songs that in her hands are transformed from standards into Olivia's classics. She has that magic power. If you're smart just buy it and compare, even her Ave Maria rendition shows that her singing range is amazing. She sings it almost perfectly without giving up to the latin lyrics or the musical challenge.
