iTunes Editors’ Notes

Young, emerging composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice had the idea for a stage production of this controversial look at Jesus Christ but lacked the money and clout to get it done. Instead, their tale of Jesus' last days, with plenty on his relationship with Judas, was set as an album, with a credible cast of rock musicians, including Ian Gillan (as Jesus), Murray Head (Judas) and Yvonne Elliman (Mary Magdalene), bringing the songs, and, therefore, the concept to life. A Broadway production and movie followed in the wake of this chart-topping double album. In fact, the performances rock pretty darn hard. There's a tough funk element to the music, an early 1970s hard rock that features sharp guitar lines and unrestrained vocal performances. Murray Head and Victor Brox on "Judas's Death" create a genuine hysteria. Elliman's "I Don't Know How To Love Him" has become a standard and the "Superstar" theme is one of popular music's most famous melodies. No album better represents the sound and fury of the early 1970s.

Customer Reviews

JC Superstar Booklet

I downloaded the album, but can't detect that the booklet was downloaded along with it. On my vinyl, the libretto is a great part of the listening experience.

Some 5-star songs here

I would only quibble with the last sentence of the iTunes review - "Who's Next" better represents the sound and the fury of the early 1970s. This album, rather, packages clever social commentary about the mass phenomena of Christianity's epicenter with some great vocal performances and driving rock music.

This is the one!

Confusing reviews… but if you grew up with the brown 2-disc LP, this is it! Ignore the reviews about poor quality. It sounds great!
