The Complete Limelight Sessions is a collection of songs recorded by Canadian country singer Shania Twain, before she signed a record deal with Mercury Nashville in 1993. It was released in North America on October 23, 2001 following the massive success of Come on Over. The album was promoted by remixes of "It's Alright", Twain's only song to chart on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart. "The Heart Is Blind" was released as a single to country radio, but did not get enough airplay to enter Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.

The tracks on this album were remastered by the original producer, and released with Shania's blessing;[citation needed] all other versions were released without consent from Shania or the producer.

The songs from this album were previously released in July 2000 throughout Europe on the RWP Label as Wild & Wicked and originally came with a free poster. It charted on the UK Albums Chart at number 62 for two weeks.
