1. Product Details
50th Anniversary Edition On 180g Vinyl Double LP!
Half-Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road!
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the soundtrack to Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's 1970 religious rock musical and global phenomenon, Jesus Christ Superstar, is pressed on 2 180g vinyl discs with a replica card gatefold sleeve and 12-page booklet. The album was remastered by Miles Showell and Nick Davis at Abbey Road in November 2020, and half-speed mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road in the spring of 2021.
In 1970, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber released Jesus Christ Superstar as a concept double album. It became a massive global best-seller, topping the US Billboard Top LPs chart in both February and May 1971, as well as ranking at number one in the year-end chart. By 1983, the album had sold over 7 million copies worldwide.
However, the journey to international success was far from straightforward. As unknown names in musical theatre, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber were unable to find a producer willing to stage their ambitious idea for a religious-themed rock opera. Eventually, they persuaded MCA records to let them record the score first. Using a full orchestra, and with the outstanding talents of Ian Gillan, Murray Head, Yvonne Elliman and The Grease Band, they created a masterpiece that revolutionized the form of musical theatre.
Within a year of its chart success, stage productions of Jesus Christ Superstar began to appear all over the world, leading to record-breaking runs in the West End, a hit Hollywood film, Tony nominations and Olivier Awards. Its influence and impact have not diminished: in 2018 the NBC live production of the show, starring John Legend and Sara Bareilles, resulted in Emmy Award wins for Rice and Lloyd Webber (thereby making them two of the 16 people in history to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony).
A tribute to an international phenomenon, this special 50th anniversary edition is the perfect way to celebrate the extraordinary legacy of Jesus Christ Superstar.
