The movie turns 25 this year, and the Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd Webber soundtrack sounds as dramatic and intense as ever. This special 25th Anniversary Edition is remastered and accompanied by a booklet with all-new full-color movie photos.
This 1974 Norman Jewison film may have been a critical misstep, but some fans in truth preferred it to Broadway’s rock spectacle. The thing is, Jesus Christ Superstar was once first introduced as a two-disc rock opera, not unlike the Who’s Tommy, as it even scored several Top 40 hits. Even as no set matches the original, it is still hard to go fallacious with the music, it doesn’t matter what the source. This also includes the pretty “Could We Start Again, Please,” composed for the stage version, and sung here by the original LP’s Mary Magdalene, Yvonne Elliman. Ted Neely (Jesus) and Carl Anderson (Judas), meanwhile, have spent two decades on the road, recreating their roles night after night, despite the fact that they’ve to now be no less than two decades older than Jesus was once on the Crucifixion. –Bill Holdship
