AllMusic Review by

The year 1972 saw cast recordings of Jesus Christ Superstar appear all over the world, including Germany, Sweden, and Australia. The French cast included future Eurovision Song Contest winner Anne-Marie David, then 20-years-old, as Mary Magdalene, and the Broadway recording's Bob Bingham. As with most recordings of this type, the work is beautifully crafted and compelling, but little more than a curio beyond the audience for which it was intended.
