Album Review

Andrew Lloyd Webber's first musical to be based on biblical sources, written in 1967 when he was still a teenager, has taken on greater importance in the wake of his subsequent success. It finally hit Broadway in 1982, and there was a London revival in 1992. This cast album (which is at least the fifth recording) chronicles an American revival production that opened in Los Angeles in February 1993, starring Michael Damian. By now, the short musical has expanded to full length (the CD runs 73 minutes, including the nine-minute disco-ish "Joseph Megamix" medley), but it remains a rock pastiche with an uncertain tone. Webber and lyricist Tim Rice would find their feet with this kind of approach in 1970 when they recorded Jesus Christ Superstar, and Joseph is still best understood as a dry run for that success.
