Wanting to know!

I want to learn how to play the entire Rock Opera before I die. I’ve been listening to this musical for 42 years starting with the original vinyl albums! I don’t know how to play the piano b u t I will learn. This is the most significant life changing event in my life. I’m so sad to say I never was able to see Ted Neely perform this wonderful musical!

Close to the original

While some of the songs contained are not transposed in the original keys, this is a great book for your collection. I bought this to replace the one I bought in 1971 which had been lost over the years. It also only contains every other song. That might have been a restriction placed on the publisher by the composers when it was first printed. If you actually wanted to perform the rock opera, you would have needed to order the complete score (multiple copies) and pay heavy royalties. Technically, this still holds true. But this book will get you moving in the right direction.

The musical arrangements are really nice which makes the music being played sound that much more beautiful.

The musical arrangements are done very well which makes the music being played sound that much more beautiful. The intermediate level helps to give it a full rich sound and is well worth any extra effort to be able to play from this book. The only thing that I would wish is that all the songs were included, although I guess that there are more than in the original. I highly recommend this book!

most songs included

Many of the songs sin the musical are included here. I play violin. This is good for guitar, piano and voice as well. Some things I don’t like are: Not all the famous songs are included, such as one sung by Judas. Also, the frills are not included, making the music sound different than the original. Maybe they wanted to keep secrets so we don’t produce the play on our own.

Great piano arrangements

This is a compilation of piano arrangements for a musical that came of age when I was a young teen.

JCS for the pianst and singer.

 on May 12, 2013

I owned this book many decades ago. Another musician has recently discovered JCS and since I could not find my copy, I purchased this one. Highly recommended for piano players and singers. Some of the rhythms are quite tricky but most pieces can be readily played. While this is far from an easy edition, it is not out of reach for experienced pianists.
