Rhino Records are delighted to announce the CD ‘Elaine Paige & Friends’ has been certified gold status by the BPI for sales of 100,000 units.
Elaine Paige and Friends has been a huge success and I had a ball making it & a lot of fun promoting it everywhere. It all kicked off with a morning on QVC which was hugely successful … we sold out! In a flash!!! Then there was BBC Breakfast, London Tonight, Alan Titchmarsh, Saturday Kitchen (& having to try the Duck!!!), a whole slew of radio interviews including one with my pal and colleague Steve Wright at BBC Radio 2, who is always such fun to be interviewed by, and then a wonderful hot buttered toast kind of Sunday morning at Wogan’s place… what fun that was, and so lovely to see a few of you sat in the audience – how do you manage it?? At the end of that week we got our first chart position ….. No 18!!! Top 20!!! So exciting and much celebration by all. And after 6 weeks the album continues to be in the Top 60 and selling well – which I am told by the ‘experts’ is really fantastic at this time of year when there are so many album releases, many of which enter the chart one week and disappear the next!
