      I agree with damslattery. This was the first version I owned, on the Decca pressed LP. I prefer its sane musicality including a lovely gentle ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’ sung by Dana Gillespie and John Parker’s Pilate to the more hysterical versions although the film soundtrack still does it for me despite odd sound balances.

        Long out-of-print, but is available on CD from specialist outlets. This is the original early British 70s production and for my money it is one of the best of all the recordings. Conducted by Anthony Bowles, this is a rich symphonic version, far more lyrical than the screaming-Jesus versions around. The singers all sport clipped-English accents and some of the vocals are rough as hell. But that does not detract from the sane theatrical interpretations that Bowles insisted upon - (dampening down the orgasms and hysteria that the rock fraternity wallow in.) Unusually, he up-tempo's 'Herod's Song' which works wonderfully and Pilate at the Trial (played by John Parker) is nothing short of remarkable.
