is an album by the Australian singer Olivia Newton-John, released in 1981. The album was a massive success, peaking in sixth place on Billboard 200and ranking double platinum. This was also Newton-John's first and only album to chart R&B, peaking at number thirty-two.

Physical is the best selling album by a female Australian singer, selling 10,000,000 copies worldwide.
Olivia Newton-John's Greatest Hits (1977) was the first compilation album released by Olivia Newton-John in the United States. (In some other regions, Newton-John released a 1974 compilation, First Impressions. This album was therefore marketed instead as Greatest Hits Vol. 2 and featured a different track listing.) The album collected all of Newton-John's American Top 40 singles released between 1971 and 1977. "Changes" was the only track not released as a single, but it was one of Newton-John's first self-written songs that she recorded. The album was Newton-John's first platinum certification peaking No. 13 Pop and No. 7 Country. It ended up being certified double Platinum in the US and Gold in the UK and in Hong Kong.
Olivia's Greatest Hits Vol. 2 is the second hits collection from English-born, Australian pop singer Olivia Newton-John released in September 1982.

40/40: The Best Selection is a comprehensive double-disc career overview of Olivia Newton-John designed to celebrate her four decades in show business. Yes, the compilation runs 40 tracks, but this is not designed to showcase each era of Olivia's career in equal measure. Perhaps there are a few more latter-day cuts than most audiences would know, and maybe there are a few more early tracks than needed, but all the big hits are here, from the early mellow country-rock to the slick soft rock and melodic disco of the turn of the '80s. Compared to the U.S. compilation Gold, this isn't quite as good - there's too much of the two bookends of a long career - but it does have what most casual audiences require: all the hits, all sounding as good as they ever have.
"Let Me Be There" is a 1973 album by Olivia Newton-John. The American publication of this 1973 album by MCA Records used the cover art from Olivia's 1972 LP record "Olivia" which was not released by MCA. Some of its songs were taken for the U.S. publication, such as song titles from the British publications of the albums "If Not for You" and "Olivia". Though the title song was a commercial failure in England, it was Olivia Newton-John's first American Top Ten hit, successfully boosting her singing career in North America. She had previously charted in the Billboard Top 40 with the song "If Not for You".
Totally Hot is Olivia Newton-John's ninth US and tenth international studio album. Released in November 1978, it became her first solo Top 10 (# 7) album since 1975's Have You Never Been Mellow. Dressed on the album cover all in leather, Newton-John's transformation in Grease from goody-goody "Sandy 1" to spandex-clad "Sandy 2" emboldened her to do the same with her music. The album's singles "A Little More Love" (# 3 Pop, # 94 Country, # 4 AC), "Deeper Than The Night" (# 11 Pop, # 87 Country, # 4 AC), and the title track (# 52 Pop) all demonstrated a more aggressive and uptempo sound for Newton-John.
"Great Hits: First Impressions" is the first greatest hits album by Olivia Newton-John. It was released in 1974.
