Review[edit]

Allmusic review wrote "Phil Ramone's clean and simple production perfectly complements Paige's sweet but powerful vocal ability. Elaine Paige and Friends is unlikely to echo the multi-platinum success of similar duets collections, but for fans who've waited nearly 20 years for new material, it's a tasteful and well-produced choice of songs."[5]
