Pressing Notes

The 4 sided version is missing the copyright sentence below the DiscoVision logo on Side 1 which is present on the 5 sided version. This version proceeds directly into the film and does not contain the MPAA rating screen. Content wise, the film is the same as the 5 sided version. Side 4 and Side 5 of the 2nd pressing are essentially identical.

Release History

Jesus Christ Superstar was reissued on MCA Home Video as a 2 sided CLV disc in August 1987 (Catalog #: 17002). Again, it was released Mono first (a mistake, since the jackets claimed stereo), and then repressed in Stereo. MCA/Universal Home Video released a widescreen (2.35:1) edition (Catalog #: 41297) in July 1992.
