Background: Released in 1989, Cuts Both Ways was the first solo album by Gloria Estefan, though the Miami Sound Machine is credited on the spine.

The album reached #8 on the U.S. charts and has sold more than three million copies.

In the United States, vinyl was being phased out by the record companies, and the vinyl release of the album was relatively limited.

Allmusic.com gave Cuts Both Ways a 4 star review:

Leveraging the runaway success of her previous album, Let It Loose, Gloria Estefan furthered her indulgence in spare, moody love ballads and club-ready dance-pop jams for Cuts Both Ways and scored herself another Top Ten album. The transformation of Gloria Estefan the lead singer of Miami Sound Machine to Gloria Estefan the pop star is complete here. … Cuts Both Ways is one of her best and, without question, was one of her most successful, clear affirmation that Estefan had indeed become one of the biggest pop stars in the whole wide world as the ’80s came to a close.
