Released in March of 2001, In The Spotlight was a live cassette album that Lyle compiled for his fans. The 60 minute cassette featured 14 tracks (12 live recordings, one rehearsal recording, and one home studio demo). The quality of the album was acceptable but was never meant as much more than a sample or demo. The album was mainly a tool for Lyle to begin sharing his music with friends and fans. After the release of Left Standing, which is considered his debut album, Lyle sold CDR copies of In The Spotlight through his web site for a short time. Unfortunately, this album is out of print (OOP) but Lyle has made this digital copy available for download here in recognition of the album's 10th anniversary.
