I love this soundtrack,it is superb. I grew up on the songs from this musical and so this has a special place in my heart.
It's true that in a couple of places the sound quality muffles a little but remember it was recorded 30 or so years ago.
The main point i would like to make is that listening to the movie recordings of these songs for most of my life, and seeing three different theatre productions of this musical in my lifetime, the movie interpretations and singers are by far SUPERIOR to any actor/stage/singer that i have yet witnessed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed each time watching this live in a theatre, but the quality of singing on this soundtrack is of the highest calibre and delivered with massive emotion.
Watch the 1973 version yourself and witness Carl Anderson as Judas, Ted Neeley as Jesus and Yvonne Elliman as Mary Magdelene.
Their renditions of these songs still bring a tear to my eye as they are sung with such passion, depth and soul.

This is the definative JC Superstar. The casting is perfect and the talent of the vocalists is unparalelled. Jesus, Judas and Kiafas are particularly good. I recently bought the stage version DVD, although it is excellent, it pales next to this soundtrack. Money well spent!

Okay- where do I begin? Well, for a start, this claims to be a remastered version of the soundtrack, though you'd hardly guess upon hearing it, as some points throughout the music sound a little murky- hardly what you'd expect from a remastered edition. But nonetheless, the music still stands out. This version of the score is probably one of the best around- with Andre Previn conducting you are assured some treats! The orchestra sound absolutely amazing, and yet the rock rhythm tracks still stand out. The singers, however, are another story. The best out of the whole lot, as i'm sure everyone will agree, is Yvonne Elliman, who is simply THE Magdalene. Her voice is too wonderful to describe. Dennen and Anderson are next in line, as Pilate and Judas respectively- they have fine voices and act the music as much as they sing it. Ted Neeley, however, is simply far too weak a Jesus to be thoroughly convincing, though as a singer, he can pass it off. Mostel as Herod is the WORST thing on this c.d.- his Herod is high- HIGH- camp, which seriously mars this devine show. I always skip his track. Lloyd Webber improved on his orchestrations for this version, which creates some wonderful effects- especially on "Pilate's Dream". He and Rice also wrote a new song for the film- "Then we are decided", which was only ever used in the movie- a shame, because it creates a new dimension for the characters Caiaphas and Annas. The one thing that's missing from the movie is the reprise of "Everything's alright", which in the movie became this exceptionally beautiful orchestral sequence that lead into "I don't know how to love him"- this is missing from the recording. A real shame! Musically, i'd say that this has to be one of the best versions around.Read more ›

Over the years there have been many cast recordings of Jesus Christ Superstar but without a doubt this is the best. Apart from the fact that these portrayals of Jesus, Judas and Mary Magdalene (Ted Neeley, Carl Anderson and Yvonne Elliman) are my favourites, and you can't beat the film for passion and emotion, this is the most complete version of Jesus Christ Superstar as it not only includes all the songs from the stage show but the additional songs written for the film itself, including my personal favourite, "Could we start again please". I agree with other reviewers that I'd heard better sound quality from "remastered" CDs but even so, it's well worth the money and I'm delighted with it. A worthy companion to the DVD - brilliant.

I was brought up on this film and soundtrack and I was thrilled they have brought out a re-mastered version. All of the actors personify who they are portraying and it shows in the music.

Lloyd-Webber and Rice at the peak of their artistic collaboration.

Each track covers the magic of the stage show and film with ease.

A rousing introduction is followed by a mix of wonderful melancholy and lively tunes that embrace the listener more and more with each listening.

The story unfolds in a seemless fashion and depicts the life of Christ in a beautiful modern manner.

One not to be missed.

I have a few different versions of this musical, but this movie soundtrack was the first I ever heard/saw, and has always been my favourite. How Ted Neely reaches those high notes without his head exploding is a wonder in itself! Listen to this album, and then buy the movie. Give your eyes the same joy you will have given your ears.

As far as I'm concerned this is the best cast of singers for this piece. I remember seeing the film when I was in my teens and it literally blew me away. If you have never seen it, get onto you tube and treat yourself. And then buy the movie, and then the soundtrack. One of the best musicals ever written, and these are the best people ever to sing the songs. Enjoy.
