Backstage is the fifth album by American singer-actress Cher, released in July 1968 by Imperial Records. This album was her first commercial failure, failed to chart. The album is by-and-large a covers album.
The album was not a success and was her first to produce no hit singles. "The Click Song" and "Take Me For A Little While" were released as singles, but they did not chart. Ten of the 12 tracks were also issued in 1970 as an LP on Sunset Records (Liberty Records' budget subsidiary) as This Is Cher (the songs "A House is Not a Home" and "Song Called Children" were not included).
In this year Cher recorded also others two songs: "Yours Until Tomorrow" and "The Thought Of Loving You". "Yours Until Tomorrow" was released as a single with "The Thought Of Loving You".
The album was re-issued on CD in 2007 along with the greatest hits release Golden Greats.
