Love Hurts

Cinema is the fourth solo album by Elaine Paige.[1] The album was released in 1984 on Warner Music, peaking at #12 in the UK album charts.[2] This album has been re-issued on CD. It was the second of Paige's recordings to be produced by Tony Visconti. To follow the theme of Stages, Paige chose tracks that had been previously recorded for soundtracks. Like Stages, the recording was primarily conducted at Visconti's Good Earth Studios, other than for "Sometimes" (Theme from Champions) which had been previously recorded at CTS Studios, London featuring the New World Philharmonia.


In 2014, Rhino UK released on the compilation album Elaine Paige - The Ultimate Collection[3] the out-take "What A Feeling" (from the musical 'Flashdance') which was originally recorded as part of the 'Cinema' album sessions.
