IN 1970, the rock opera Je­sus Christ, Su­per­star was re­leased in North Amer­ica on an 87-minute dou­ble LP. The work, writ­ten by Tim Rice and An­drew Lloyd Web­ber, tells of the last seven days of Christ as seen through the eyes of chil­dren of the day. The cast in­cluded Ian Gil­lan of Deep Pur­ple, Mur­ray Head and Yvonne El­li­man. A Broad­way pro­duc­tion of Je­sus Christ, Su­per­star opened a year af­ter the al­bum was re­leased.
