Format: CD
Elaine Paige has been present in the in the world of the modern musical theatre for almost 30 years. During that time she has also made numerous solo albums. Although we had an opportunity to hear some of the songs from the musicals she starred in over the years, in 1995, when she released her "Encore" album, only with this 2-CD deluxe compilation can we get the proper insight into Elaine's fascinating career. But before I give you my impressions of this CD, a few words have to be said about Ms. Paige's achievements.

After her training in Aida Foster Stage School in London, she started performing in the musical theatre with small roles. In 1971 she appeared in the musical "Maybe That's Your Problem" (by Walter Scharf, Lionel Chetwynd, and Don Black). By this time she had already had a small part in the London production of "Hair"and went on to appear in "Jesus Christ Superstar" (1973, Andrew Lloyd Webber) before landing her first leading role, as Sandy in "Grease" (1973, John Farrar, Bill Oakes, Louis St Louis). After appearing in "Billy" (1974, John Barry) she attempted, with less success, to pursue a straight acting career. Her big breakthrough came in 1978, when she was chosen to play the lead in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "Evita". The show was an instant success and Elaine became a star overnight. For her wonderful performance as Eva Peron she won several awards (Society of West End Theatre Award for Best Actress in a Musical and the Variety Club Award for Showbusiness Personality of the Year). In 1981 Elaine stared in the original London production of Lloyd Webber's "Cats" as Grizabella, coming in as a last-minute replacement for the injured Judi Dench, and thus being the first person to perform the classical song "Memory". Ms Paige has revisited this role in the television film and video of "Cats" which was released in 1998 and went straight to the top of the video charts becoming the best selling music video ever in the UK and America. In 1983 Elaine starred as Carabosse in the London production of "Abbacadabra" written by Abba's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and she sang their work on stage for a second time in the original production of "Chess" (Prince Edward Theatre, London), when they collaborated with Tim Rice in 1986. Her single from the show's score "I Know Him So Well", a duet with Barbara Dickson, held the number one position in the British charts for four weeks, and still remains the biggest selling record by a female duo in the Guinness Book of Records. In 1989 Ms Paige starred in and co-produced the smash hit Lincoln Centre, NY production of "Anything Goes" in London's West End directed by Jerry Zaks and for this she was nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Performance of the Year by an Actress in a Musical. In 1993 she received critical acclaim for her performance as Edith Piaf in the musical play by Pam Gems entitled "Piaf" which also led to a nomination for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical and an album of Piaf songs. In 1996 Ms Paige made her Broadway debut in the role of Norma Desmond in Lloyd Webber's "Sunset Boulevard" at the Minskoff Theatre. She joined the company following her outstanding performance as Norma in London which gained critical acclaim, the Variety Club of Great Britain Award for Best Actress of the Year and a nomination for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical. From 2000-2001 she appeared in Rogers and Hammerstein's "The King and I", and lastly, in 2004, as Mrs. Lovett in Sondheim's "Sweeney Todd" in New York, to much critical acclaim. During all that time she recorded more than 10 solo albums. In 1995 Ms Paige was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty the Queen for services to musical theatre.

As you can see, it has been a rich and colourful career for Elaine. This compilation captures most of it. We can hear not only her biggest successes from the roles she played in the musicals, but also we witness her best songs taken from her many solo albums, plus two new songs and previously unreleased live performances. Here are some of my personal favourites:

1. "Something in red" is a new track. Wonderfully made, especially the use of saxophone. Elaine's voice is the best in the last part of it, when she gives all its strength into the song.

2. "Memory" from "Cats": this is THE DEFINITE version, from the 1998 movie version. Elaine's voice has matured since the 1981 original cast recording and it shows. Also, this version has the biggest (80-piece) orchestra. Exceptional.

3. "I know him so well" from "Chess" is beautiful both in music and lyrics. Elaine and Barbara Dickson's voice blend perfectly and Tim Rice's lyrics about a woman's re-examination of her relationship will move you.

4. "Miss you nights" and "Let it be" are Elaine's duets with Cliff Richard, recorded live. Wonderful orchestrations and their voices together feel very warm.

5. From "Piaf" there are 6 songs, which Elaine delivers in the perfect French. In no other songs is her voice so strong, especially in "Mon dieu". She must have been brilliant in this role.

6. "Change the world" and "From the heart" are nice pop pieces from Elaine's albums; I like them especially because of their back vocals and the guitar use.

7. "Cry me a river" is a unique live performance here. Elaine vocal pirouettes send shivers down your spine and the orchestral lead takes a beautiful melody in the half of this song.

8. From "Evita" come "Don't cry for me Argentina" and "Another suitcase in another hall". I like all the three ladies (without Madonna, who is ok for me only in Evita) who recorded "Don't cry for me Argentina" and sung the whole score: Julie Covington, Elaine and Patti LuPone, because every one of them brought something new to this part. Elaine's rendition here is the strictest of the three; only at the beginning is her voice gentle. "Another suitcase in another hall" has a completely different orchestration here and I like the original better.

9. Even though Elaine didn't appear in "Les miserables" she recorded two songs from that musical: "I dreamed a dream" and "On my own". They show how wonderful Fantine or Eponine would she be.

10. "Somebody makes me laugh" is a favourite because of the lovely refrain and the strong back vocals.

11. "Sunset Boulevard" is represented by "With one look", "As if we never said goodbye" and "The perfect year". Elaine is not my most favourite Norma Desmond; I consider Patti LuPone to be vocally the fittest and with the right amount of passion, but Elaine's interpretation is also fine, especially when compared to the awful performance Glenn Close gave in this musical.

12. "Alfie" is a short and pretty little song from to me unknown movie of the same title. Elaine at her gentle voice.

13. And finally, "Kind to animals" is one of the new songs Elaine made in 2004. It's a very modern form of pop with another awesome use of saxophone. It just proves that Elaine is perfectly adjusting to the new trends in music.

You have to remember that there are totally 38 songs on the 2 CDs, so there are plenty more wonderful pieces besides the ones I mentioned above. I must point out the excellent sound quality here: the CDs have been digitally remastered and the sound is crystal clear, even more so, if you compare the quality of the same songs here and on the "Encore" album. The CD has a very nice jacket package and it comes with the appropriate booklet. The latter contains Elaine's new photographs and a promotional text about her career in the musicals, backed up with Elaine's comments.

All things considered, this CD is for all Elaine's fans who want to have the very best from her long achievements in the musical theatre and her solo recordings. Apart from the good songs, it is also a well made edition. Buy it as a proof of your own good taste.

I know him so well....the reason! 9 juin 2004
Par Amre the king - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is a nice collection of Elaine Paige's songs which span a long twenty odd years. I like Elaine Paige but not mad about her, yet I think she has a characteristic voice and I bought this CD for one song mainly, I know it sounds mad but I couldn;t find it as a cd single...and I don't mind adding an Elaine Paige CD to my collection!

The song that I'm so bloody obcessed with is "I know him so well" a duet with Barbra dickson, a huge british Number(1) hit single in 1985. It is written by the two male members of ABBA, together with Tim Rice and what a mind blowing result when combined with the unmistakable voice of Elaine Paige. The Lyrics are so honest, intense and in a way hurtful.I always thought the lyrics must have been written by a woman, but NO it's all men work but sensitively done and cleverly produced and immaculately delivered by Elaine and Barbra.

The overlapping of their two voices with the unbelievably heavanly music is something I can't find words to describe. I still have wet eyes when I listen to this song 11/10 is the score for this masterpiece.

Ofcourse the album includes the other great masterpiece, Memory and I think that Elaine's version is the best ever done, it is hers to keep. And when compared to Barbara Striesand and Sarah Brightman's versions, with all due respect...they should have left it alone...it is Elaine's...she shows far much more truth and emotion in it, maybe because it is originally hers and she sang it for the first time ever on stage in CATS.

The rest of the Album is for those who like musicals and a bit of easy listening and a lot of cover versions.

*****I must add that her new song "Something in red" is very well written, produced and delivered, I think it does the album pride as the openner, a clever, catchy , cute, sweet and glamorous piece at the same time.

The albums sound quality is good as well.

As far as I'm concerned, the album is well worth buying for the glory of "I Know him so well", if you don't know that song and do like some quality time with the first lady of the music theatre in England, U MUST BUY THIS, you will thank me then for introducing you to the world of " I Know Him So Well "....Enjoy !!

A magnificent compilation of Elaine's music 12 septembre 2004
Par Peter Durward Harris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Elaine established herself long ago as Britain's finest theatrical singer. This compilation features several new recordings while bringing together the best of her earlier music from the seventies, eighties and nineties. Comparisons with Barbra Streisand are inevitable as they are both singer-actresses with similar types of voice (though you wouldn't mistake one for the other) and they've recorded each other's songs (Barbra has recorded Memory while Elaine has recorded The way we were, though it's not here) ad there are a few other songs that they've both recorded. But there are differences too, so there's plenty of room for both in the same music collection.

Elaine first became known as the original actress in the London cast recording of Evita. In that role, she sang Don't cry for me Argentina. Her recording was not a hit (and may not have been released as a single) but the song is generally regarded (at least in Britain) as hers despite the major UK hit versions by Julie Covington in the seventies and Madonna in the nineties. Elaine further established her reputation via her role in Cats, in which she sang Memory.

Elaine released an album of theatrical songs (Stages - it was actually her third album but the earliest represented here) to capitalize on Memory and Don't cry for me Argentina, containing those two songs and several new recordings, all covers of songs from musicals that Elaine would have liked to star in. She followed this with several other excellent albums including one devoted to movie songs (Cinema), a Christmas album and tribute albums to Queen and Edith Piaf. Her other albums had no obvious themes but were also of a high quality.

All those albums are represented here except the Queen album, which is generally regarded as Elaine's weakest album although I enjoy it. Surprisingly, Stages is only represented by three tracks, these being Memory, Don't cry for me Argentina and Another suitcase. The Piaf tribute is better represented, with six tracks included here - the six with French titles. The Christmas album is represented by Wishing on a star and Ave Maria.

The musical Chess gave Elaine the biggest hit of her career - I know him so well, a duet with Barbara Dickson, which topped the UK charts in 1985. Whitney Houston later covered this song as a duet with her mother and it can be found on her second album.

Elaine made so many great recordings that even a double CD cannot hope to include them all, but this collection contains a fair representation of her music.

The Best Elaine Paige compilation you can get! 24 janvier 2005
Par David Rossi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I don't need to repeat what previous reviewers have already said (this is a great collection of Elaine's songs). But one note, the song "I Didn't Know I Was Saying Goodbye" is worth the price of this CD!

Nice songs, annoying accompaniment 4 janvier 2007
Par Doug Payne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Elaine Paige does a great job on these songs, but the synthesized music on some of them sounds like bad elevator music. Next time they should hire real musicians.
