Pearls is a 1981 album by Elkie Brooks. It is in part a compilation album, featuring earlier singles mixed with newly recorded material. It went on to become a major hit in the UK - the biggest of her career.
With the relative disappointment of her previous album, Live and Learn, A&M decided to release a compilation of her biggest hits and newly recorded material aimed firmly at the middle of the road audience. The new material was produced by Elton John's producer Gus Dudgeon. Pearls peaked at #2 staying in the charts for 79 weeks. It was first released on CD in 1985. Pearls remains Brooks' biggest selling album.
