It is time to revisit this Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice masterpiece. This 1970 recording was from London and this is the one to get! Not the one from the movie, or from the many others that exist. A new version is now playing on Broadway and I’m having mixed feelings. This original is how I remember the music and a new version may not live up to my expectations. The eerie and dramatic music was enchanting and also horrifying to me as a child. Judas and King Herod, and Pontius Pilate were such interesting characters in the movie version which followed. “I Don’t Know How To Love Him” sung by Yvonne Elliman stands out as a song that is soothing and dramatic and a classic. The first “Rock Opera” influenced many to follow to even this day. Webber /Rice certainly have made their mark.
