The video transfer is about typical for DiscoVision, with vivid colors possible but with so much contrast, there are scenes where the only way you know someone is there is by the whiteness of their teeth. The audio transfer is also typical with an apparent lack of high-end. There are times when the audio distorts noticeably. This isn't a fault of the transfer or of the DiscoVision mastering, but of the source material used. The distortion is even present on widescreen LaserDisc edition of the film available from Universal Home Video.
Some copies have been found with the typical Japanese "Disco-Vision No Program" dead side. This is a fully mastered side with the words "Disco-Vision No Program this Side". While this isn't unusual to find on Japanese mastered and pressed CLV title, this is the only known occurrence of an Carson pressed side being included on a CAV title. This would indicate that Jesus Christ Superstar was still being assembled long after titles such as Star Trek: The Motion Picture were done for Paramount. No other odd-sided Carson pressed title is known to have these dead sides.
The first edition of the printed jacket for this edition almost seems to have been prepared for the original 4-sided Mono edition. The size of the jacket is a bit on the small side, none of the chapter stops are listed on the back, and the only mention of "STEREO" is a small sticker affixed to the lower right front corner.
