Marti Webb - Tell Me On A Sunday (1980) - Lp

Margaret A. "Marti" Webb (born 13 December 1943, Hampstead, London) is an English actress and singer, who appeared on stage in Evita, before starring in Andrew Lloyd Webber's one woman show Tell Me on a Sunday in 1980.
This included her biggest hit single, "Take That Look Off Your Face", a UK top three hit, with the parent album also reaching the top three.
Margaret A. Webb was born in Hampstead to Cecil (a clockmaker) and Selina Elizabeth Webb, and raised in Cricklewood. Her parents took her to variety shows and pantomimes as a child. Her father played the violin and her mother sang and played the piano. She attended dance lessons from the age of 3 and first performed in public at the age of 7, at the Scala Theatre, London.
After a school teacher suggested to her parents that her natural talent for singing and dancing should be nurtured, she was educated at the Aida Foster stage school from the age of 12, where she eventually became Head Girl.

Tell Me on a Sunday was the first solo album released by Marti Webb.
All tracks were written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black and told the story of an English girl who has emigrated to the United States and embarks on a succession of romances.
The music later formed the first half of a stage show called Song and Dance, in which Webb also starred.
As well as composing the piece, Lloyd Webber also arranged and produced the album. Released in 1980, having been recorded in the latter part of 1979, it was one of his first pieces of work to be published by his own Really Useful Company, which he had formed three years earlier.
The musicians were mainly those that had been involved with the Variations album. American musical theatre actress Elaine Stritch performed a cameo role as an answering service attendee on the track "Capped Teeth and Caesar Salad".
The first single to be released, "Take That Look Off Your Face" reached No.3 in the UK chart in February 1980, while the title track was a minor hit some months later. The album itself was one of the biggest selling albums of the year, when it reached No.2, spending 23 weeks on the chart.
