2 × Vinyl, LP, Album, 1st pressing



This is The 1st UK release of Jesus Christ Superstar Recorded At Olympic Sound Studios, Barnes, Advision Studios, Island Studios And Spot Productions Studios On 16-Track Tape.
This is the rare, earliest first pressing, of which only a few hundred copies were made. It has the unique fold-out star cover and the late-sixties style MCA labels with the orange/yellow swirl design.
The album's official release date was 16th October 1970 by which time MCA had introduced the new 'bow-tie' label design.
Later pressings followed with different label.
The booklet is slightly different from later copies - it is printed on shiny paper and has rounded corners.
Sleeve printed and made in England by E. J. Day.
Inner sleeve: Blue Decca poly-lined inners. The date codes on these sleeves are 6/70 and 7/70 which precedes the official release date by several months.
Booklet: This is the original first press booklet which has much shinier paper than later issues and rounded corners.

Shouldn't the press release (Radio 2 copy) that was sold, have been a separate item on discogs? That sale in December 2015 has distorted the price of this item. It is now showing up as my 2nd most expensive record, when it clearly isn't.
