Limelight (Marti Webb album)

Limelight is a 2003 studio album by Marti Webb.

The album was produced by self-financed and co-produced by Webb with Gary Branch. It mainly features musicians that had been involved with The Magic of the Musicals tours throughout the 1990s and new recordings of Webb's most popular songs from previous albums.

It was recorded at the JazzMouse Studios in East Berkshire.

"Shall We Dance" is a duet with Ronobir Lahiri, who was at the time of recording playing The King of Siam opposite Webb as Anna Leonowens in a UK tour of The King and I. "Elaborate Lives" features harmony vocals by Robert Meadmore, who had appeared in one of The Magic of the Musicals tours with Webb.

Webb first performed the song "As Long As He Needs Me" as Nancy in Oliver! and "Stage Door John" when playing Susie Dean in the musical version of J. B. Priestley's The Good Companions. She had not previously recorded "As Long As He Needs Me".

The album was only made available through the London musical theatre merchandise shop Dress Circle and at the venues on Webb's tours.
