I've seen JCS twice, live. Both were touring companies. Once in 1976 and again in Ottawa several years ago.
Carl Anderson reprised his role as Judas in the second out, per the motion picture adaptation.
For me, the strongest and most satisfying line-up was the original Webber / Rice helmed rock opera concept recording that featured Deep Purple's Ian Gillan as Christ, Murray Head as Judas and Yvonne Elliman as Mary M.
1970 release on Decca.
Raw power that was.
I had the first press vinyl box release with booklet and expanded liner notes. Unfortunately it went MIA during one of many moves from city to city.
A few years ago I replaced it with a re-issued re-mastered double CD set. The replay on my car system is stunning.
