Two Days Away is an album by Elkie Brooks, released in 1977.


Brooks' breakthrough second album, released in 1977, propelled her into solo stardom in the UK and Europe. Including the top ten hits "Pearl's a Singer" and "Sunshine After the Rain", it had a distinct American sound largely due to the work of the legendary writers and producers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It remains one of Brooks' finest albums and is available on CD, paired with its predecessor Rich Man's Woman.
