Centre Stage: The Very Best of Elaine Paige is a compilation album by Elaine Paige, released on 4 October 2004.

Contents

Background

The album features tracks primarily taken from her back catalogue with Warner Music, and was released by WSM (Warner Special Markets). It is the second compilation album to be subtitled "The Very Best of Elaine Paige" after On Reflection: The Very Best of Elaine Paige.

The tracks "Something in Red" and "I Didn't Know I Was Saying Goodbye" were recorded for this album and produced by Bobby Huff. The tracks "Change the World", "From the Heart", "One More Time", "Somebody Make Me Laugh", "Is It Me" and "Kind to Animals" were recorded in 2000 and produced by Mike Moran for an album that was planned but never released.

The live recordings of "Miss You Nights" and "Let It Be Me", both duets with Cliff Richard, are taken from DVD of his 1999 London concert Live in the Park.

The two disc album was issued in a single jewel case with a cardboard sleeve. The discs had full colour labels. The album was designed by Mental Block and featured photography by Paul Cox.
