AllMusic Review by

This album, One Woman's Live Journey, was released with timing planned to allow it to correspond with Olivia Newton-John's performance during the Sydney 2000 Olympic games' opening ceremonies. This live recording -- one of the very few live offerings Newton-John made -- is from performances done in the summer of 1999 in Atlantic City, NJ, at the Taj Mahal. There are 21 memorable tracks on this album, including most of the top picks from her long career, many from her early years, like "Summer Nights," "Xanadu," "Physical," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," and "I Honestly Love You." Olivia Newton-John fans will recognize many of these tunes from movies that she stared in, such as Grease and Xanadu. Though a live album, this Australia-only release is still up to grade and a real pleasure to listen to thanks to the unfailing singing talents of Olivia Newton-John.
