Elaine Paige Live is a live solo album by Elaine Paige, recorded and released in 2009 during an early date of Paige's 40th anniversary concert tour.

Background[edit]

It was produced by Paige and the tour's musical director Chris Egan. The recording, made at Vicar Street, Dublin, features tracks from throughout her 40-year theatrical career.

As well as the musical theatre songs with which she is closely related, the album features less obvious performances such as The Beatles song, "Yesterday" that Paige performed for her first Evita audition, and "Shoot the Breeze" that was taught to her by the song's composer Dustin Hoffman.

The final, bonus track on the album is a studio recording, "The Things You Are to Me", written by Brendan Graham and Rolf Løvland and recorded by Paige for their Secret Garden album, Inside I'm Singing. As of March 2009, this was not yet released in the United Kingdom.

Marketing and promotion[edit]

The album was self-financed by Paige and sold at concert venues as well as via her website. It is available on CD in the United States through Amazon.com under the title Celebrating 40 Years On Stage on a PBS label, containing the same 18 live tracks and additional studio bonus track.

The album was released digitally on 21 September 2009. [1]
