(31 January 2004) Oh! From the Girls is a 15 song collection that is released through Oxygen Media and Nettwerk America. The CD is comprised of a compilation of songs from various renowned female artists including Sarah McLachlan, Avril Lavigne, Tori Amos, Dido, and many more. Some of the tracks include live renditions that are previously unreleased and many of the songs are well known favorites.

Dido launches this compilation CD with her massive hit, "Thankyou." R&B singer Macy Gray rocks with her rare live track, "Come Together." One can feel the excitement and mood of this explosive singer. Stacy Orrico's "Stuck" and Avril Lavigne's "I'm With You" highlight these two songstress' recent success in the pop/rock market.

Well-known, established vocalists Sarah McLachlan singing "Angel," Tori Amos singing the live version of "Cornflake Girl," and Aimee Mann singing "Calling It Quits" take center stage withtheir hits. Another tried and true song, "I'll Stand By You" by the Pretenders has the listenerreminiscing and singing along. Other lesser known female vocalists including Sarah Harmer, Martina Sobara and Kathleen Edwards hold their own with their soaring vocals.

As noted inside the CD booklet, a portion of the album's proceeds will go to support Oxygen's national partners for "Build Your Own Business" which is a public service program giving women the tools and funds they need to start their own businesses.

This compilation is certainly filled with the familiar tones of some fabulous female vocalists that we all know and love, and the newcomers riding on their shirttails are worthy of a good listen.--Audrey Elliot in New York
