There is one song to buy from this version -- "Could we start again please." Then you buy the entire album of "Original Studio Recording" and create a playlist putting them together. See my review of the other album. --Michael Barclay
My father is Marc Pressel (who conducted this amazing show). Even at 42 years old I still listen every week to this CD at some point, and I make sure to play it for my kids to show them some of the history of Broadway. What an amazing era -- I just came across a scrapbook my father and his brother put together when Superstar came out. There were protests, screams of blasphemy writing a rock opera about Jesus Christ, "you are all going to hell", etc. And for all of the negatives at the time, the show was so unique in its story and its music was and is simply amazing. Is what gave me the desire to play music as a kid (and an adult) and I am forever appreciative of it. BTW, the band that played in the pit was Randall's Island, and the lead guitarist was Elliot Randall who then went on to play with Steely Dan DP
I personally like the Andrew Llyod Webber version better, but this has some better versions of the songs i love Jesus Christ Superstar.
