That artwork looks fab in LP form!Not really to do with Physical, apart from this being it's follow up. Still, this sealed copy of Soul Kiss on eBay brought back memories of getting my own copy in October 1985. That elegant sleeve! Olivia's frightwig! The cool 'hype sticker'! Say what you like about LPs, but it was hard to top the artwork.
4 pages! Such a triumph. Even if I have made about 57 of the 62 posts.
Yes, for some reason a lot of her albums aren't available on Spotify or iTunes here. I think it's different in the States. Physical is arguably the best 'pop' album she ever made, so it's a good place to start. 1978's Totally Hot is great too. 1985's Soul Kiss is worth a listen too. It's one of those albums that divides fans, but if you take to Physical you might like it.Thanks for this informative thread. I must confess I have never listened to an album by Olivia other than hearing the songs from Grease. There was a show on TV earlier about musicals and Grease was mentioned and I had a desire to Spotify some Olivia. There's not many of her albums there so I chose a Playlist someone had compiled. I liked most of what I heard.
Spotify do have Physical, so I will give it a listen.
Olivia did videos for every song on the album. You should check them out on YouTube. Some are surprisingly good for saying it was the 80s and videos were a relatively new concept then.
