Had the original LP. Loved it. This digitally recreates the feel of the original. If you liked the original and want a good digital copy than this is it.

This is the Original recording of the tour group that first recorded and made this the popular hit that it became. I saw this rock opera about 1969 in Columbia, SC at the Coliseum, and this recording best represents the cast's original musical that gained popularity and media coverage for portraying the final hours of the life of Jesus in a skewed and controversial manner in a Rock Opera. The original opera was so weird because the costumes the cast wore were mixtures of the Roman garb, true to the era, added and mixed with a hippy flair that placed a different slant on the story- and somehow worked as the hippy era was still alive at the time and when you think about it- the hippie appearence was very similar, the girls's long full granny gowns and the long hair with beards for the men, all kind of raggidy. Outstanding guitar licks coupled with beautiful voices with unmatchable range control make this a classic. The hits from the opera that were heard on the radio at the time were taken from this version. I've heard the London Version- I've listened to them all, this one is the original and this one is the best- by far! Get it before it's gone.

The premise of this musical is inventive and daring: the story of Jesus Christ from the viewpoint of Judas. The music is natural and beautiful. This is a must-have for all collector's of Broadway's finest.

If you are thinking of buying a copy of "Jeasus Christ Superstar," look no further. This is the best possible recording you will find. The lyrics are infectious and the oddness of the 70s style of music fits surprising well. Since I Was a child, I must say that the song between Pilate and Christ has always been my favorite. I just love the way it is sung and played out. The Pontius Pilate used in this recording is brilliant! Every song is brilliant in fact, and the vocals for each character fit so amazingly well you will never be able to listen or see another version without wishing you were listening to this one. This is the only musical I can actually listen to and feel as if I am not listening to a musical, I can listen to it like any other CD...except I have to refrain myself from dancing around.

So glad to have finally found this -- the original LONDON recording. This one includes the original, melodic Herod song, not the goofy spoken versions done after by comedians who can't sing. I never understood why the Broadway recordings and others done after London ruined that song in that way. It was such an important scene, why mess it up to cameo a big name comedian? If you liked the original music, this one's for you.

After listening to the original blaring from our stereo in the 80's & 90's during Easter week, we have been at a loss these past years with the new technology and nothing to play our old lp on. The other JC Superstar CD releases do not measure up to this remastered version. We also appreciated that the words to all of the songs were included as in the original. Thank you! Thank you!

This is the real deal. Yeah, &quot Could we start again&quot isn't here, but neither are the additional versus to the Pilate scene. This is the Rock Opera as it came out in 1970, with the original singers, not the pretty boys who had to talk or scream some of the lyrics cuz they didn't have the range of the original. Don'tcha get me wrong, I loved the movie, too, but it pales by comparison.

Been mesmerised by this particular version of the play for the last twenty or more years. Nobody did Jesus better than Ian Gillan did. Even the movie version could not sway me with its ''Could we start again'' number. Simply Great!

This is a good version of Superstar. No major songs are left out, except perhaps 'Could We Start Again Please'. Which I think is a sorta new song and this is an older recording, but it really adds something to the story, that one song really expresses a lot! I also think that this recording lacks emotion in some parts. Some songs don't seem to have a lot behind them, and it's almost a let down...
