At first glance I did not get too excited at the track listing of this new recording. It seemed mainly to be songs that have been recorded a hundred times before, and it almost seemed that I must have old CDs with Elaine Paige singing the same songs. Well, I was wrong. These are all new recordings with Elaine in fine voice.The arrangements are fresh and modern while paying respect to the originals. It really brings musical theatre to the 21st century. If like me you have some doubts, dont hesitate.......buy this cd!.

Elaine Paige does such a wonderful job on these songs. I appreciate her understated, GORGEOUS version of "Bring Him Home" most of all, with "You Must Love Me" and "Someone Else's Story" coming in as close seconds. Elaine's voice is rich and her interpretations are more subtle on this collection than on previous CDs, reminiscent of recent recordings by Barbra Streisand in demonstrating how a fine voice ages with time. Terrific.

It's very easy to see why Elaine Paige is classed as Britain's first lady of musical theatre when you listen to this album because every track is a gem. As a regular listener to her BBC radio 2 show I was delighted when the listeners were invited to vote for their own essentials musicals and it was no surprise to me when the results were in and Elaine herself had stared in over a third of the top twenty.

This album has something for everyone and you'll be singing right along side her, including a unique rendition of "Edelweiss" from the Sound of Music to the almost jazzy interpretation of South Pacific's "I'm gonna wash that man right out of my hair"

But my favourite song of the whole album is "You Must love me" From Evita and when listening to this song it's very easy to see why Elaine Paige is considered to have created the definitive Eva Peron for the performance itself is absolutely heart-breaking

If you like musical theatre this album is a must have and I would recommend it to anyone.
