"Jesus Christ Superstar", the seminal, genre-defining rock album written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, re-released as a digitally remastered double-album on July 16th. The album was the starting point of the Jesus Christ Superstar phenomenon and spawned the now world famous theatrical stage show and Hollywood film. Featuring a long list of legendary musicians, the album has renowned rock vocalist and Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan voicing the part of Jesus, platinum selling solo artist Murray Head as Judas Iscariot and the inimitable Yvonne Elliman in the role of Mary Magdalene. Originally released in 1970, the album achieved huge global fame, most notably in the United States where it went to Number 1 on the Billboard Album Chart, keeping other seminal records by George Harrison and Led Zeppelin off the top spot and going on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide. Andrew Lloyd Webber said "The re-mastered album sounds fantastic and we hope that fans both old and new will enjoy it". Release date 16th July.
