Elaine Paige chronology

Encore is the title of a solo album released in 1995 by Elaine Paige.[1] The album peaked at number 20 on the UK Albums Chart in July 1995.

It is primarily a compilation of material from earlier recordings but also includes three new recordings, all taken from the musical Sunset Boulevard, the London production of which Paige joined the same year. All the tracks are taken from musical theatre. The album was released on the WEA label and therefore included no material from Paige's RCA recordings, Love Can Do That and Romance & the Stage.
