Stages is an album by Elaine Paige, released in 1983 on the Warner Music and K-tel labels[1] and has been re-issued on CD.[2] The album charted in the UK album charts at #2 in 1983.[3] It was the first of a number of Paige's recordings to be produced by Tony Visconti who had previously worked with David Bowie, The Moody Blues and Mary Hopkin. It featured a number of songs from musicals including tracks from shows in which she had appeared. The album was primarily recorded at Visconti's Good Earth Studios other than for the track "Tomorrow" which was taped at Olympic Studios. The track "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" was taken from the 1978 original London cast recording of Evita.

In 2014, Rhino UK released on the compilation album 'Elaine Paige - The Ultimate Collection'[4] the out-take "It's Raining on Prom Night" (from the musical 'Grease') which was originally recorded as part of the 'Stages' album sessions.
