Comments: CD book includes lyrics which were not included in my copy of the LP. Musically, ... Well, if you can't say anything nice... Worthless trivia for the under 40 crowd: John Gustafson played on the original "Jesus Christ Superstar" album for which Tim Rice wrote words, collaborating with Andrew Lloyd Webber.
