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.
