Limelight 82000/86000 series discography

About 70 albums were released on the Mercury subsidiary label Limelight between 1965 and 1969. These LPs were released in the 82000 series in mono and in the 86000 series in stereo. Mono releases were halted midway through the series at which point the 82000 sequence ends and releases continue only in the 86000 series. For this reason only the 86000 numbers are given in the list below.
