A new remaster is out for Jesus Christ Superstar - the only good version (!) the original sound track with Ian Gillian as The Man. 50th Anniversary… cripes I remember when it came out… my teachers played it in school. Did you know Ian Gillian did the whole recording in 1 afternoon (came back for a 1/2 hour touchup) and had never heard or seen the music until he entered the studio that day. Then when done, they told him they did not have any money to pay him. They offered him a royalty, 1 cent per album which he took. I don’t know how much that actually earned him, but I suspect it was more than union scale eh?
Anywho… I downloaded from Pro Studio Masters for $21.59 96K Flac… but no liner notes. There is supposed to be quite extensive notes released. Darn! I have a support ticket into them but I don’t expect anything.
Anyone like to share a PDF if you have one? This is not piracy, we are talking liner notes not music.
If you are wondering about how it sounds, I can’t listen to it yet! There is a very large compressor running outside my window right now.
