CD Reviews

The greatest recording of Jesus Christ in other language!!!
Fernando Navarrete | Mexico, D.F. Mexico | 10/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This spanish version of Jesus Christ Superstar, contains the recording of the best interpretation of the lyrics and orchestrations for the people that want to hear this masterpiece in his native language(even if you speak enghlish you'll enjoy this recording) . The voices are incredible.!!! Camilo Sesto is a really, really good Jesus, testing his voice limits in Gethsemane, and doing a perfect job.!!! Angela Carrasco as Mary Magdalene has such a beautiful voice, and its sounds angelic in "Todo esta bien (Everything's allright)" and "No se como amarlo (I don't know how to love him)". Also the cast that play the other roles (Caiphas, Annas, Peter, Simon) do a great job, being a special plus the performance of Herod, I mean it's awesome.!! So if you have the chance to buy this cd, buy it, you'll not be dissapointed."

"Aunque Camilo Sesto escurre miel, usualmente, en ésta obra saca a relucir su mejor virtud: Su voz. Con Ángela Carrazco como María Magdalena y unos coros muchisisísimo mejores que los de la obra original, es un disco de colección, aunque no te guste Camilo Sesto."

"I'm partial to this version of JCS because it was the first I heard. Having said that, I really believe that it is really superb. Camilo Sesto is excellent in here as Jesus. I believe his Gethsemani is played half a key down from the original (1969) version, but it's still impressive. Angela Carrasco is wonderful and Teddy Bautista was also very good as Judas. More on him later.
The person who really impressed me here was Antonio Garcia de Diego. Not only did he show off an incredible tenor voice in his role of Peter, but also played the guitar parts in the record. And this record rocks.
Teddy Bautista was the arranger of this production. He brought in a more rock oriented approach to this, as opposed to the Broadway affectations of the original. The result is a better, more rocking and swinging version. The orchestration and playing was first rate. Bautista used synthesizers to great effect, especially on "Sueño de Pilatos", but his use of two French horns on "Simon Zelotes" was very inspired.
Another thing that may be noticed by people familiar with this version and the original London version is the lyrics. Tim Rice's libretto is full of irony and wit, while here there's a tendency to follow biblical text more faithfully. It's less funny, but there's something to the familiarity of the words for someone like me who on occasion reads the Bible.
All in all this is really good stuff. If you like it, you should try Sesto's "Memorias" a Bautista-produced album featuring a title track that will sound oddly familiar."
