Simply the best Superstar,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jesus Christ Superstar (Audio CD)
Having seen and heard most of the versions of this tremendous musical, this is by a long shot, the very best. I bought this album originally having heard it at a friends and have been mesmerised by it every since. I have the London cast version and have seen the movie, but they are not a patch on the sensitive, heartfelt, emotion packed interpretation of this amazing cast of disparate musicians and singers. It is the music that really matters and because these performers were unhampered by how they looked or danced or acted, they can put their whole heart and soul into their performance. As this musical is so incredible, it will be fantastic whoever performs it, provided they are professionals, but if you want to appreciate the full depth and meaning of the music and words, this has to be the one you keep and treasure.

Please can you tell me if the booklet says Digitally remastered by Dick Beetham at 360 Mastering? I ask because I would like to know whether the US release of this remaster is the same as this UK release.

Thank you so very much for being in touch. It's reassuring to know that the American issue I've got IS indeed the same as this UK issue. I only stopped to ask and clarify because I read in a magazine that Lloyd Webber remastered the album in Abbey Road and Sphere, and I assumed that the UK remaster would be different from the US issue. So it's good to know that I don't need to buy the UK version.
