October 1970

Jesus Christ Superstar   

People involved

Annette Brox (vcl); Victor Brox (vcl); Mike d'Abo (vcl); Paul Davis (vcl); Barry Dennen (vcl); Yvonne Elliman (vcl); Ian Gillan (vcl); John Gustafson (vcl); Murray Head (vcl); Neil Hubbard (gtr); Brian Keith (vcl); Henry McCullogh (gtr); Chris Mercer (sxp); Paul Raven (vcl); Peter Robinson (kbr); Bruce Rowland (drm); Alan Spenner (bss); and loads of others.

Apparently Gillan laid down his vocals in 3 hours. I'm unsure as to the accuracy of that, since I've also heard that it took at least a couple of afternoons. Nice anecdote though.
