    The original 1976 studio recording of Andrew Lloyd Webber's EVITA is still considered by many fans to be the best. The album was recorded before the musical was adapted to the stage, and as a result it contains songs and lyrics that were later changed or edited out of the score. Even more interesting is the sound here, which blends Broadway theatrics with rock music (much like Lloyd Webber's other famous collaboration with lyricist Tim Rice, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR), a sound that was also modified in later versions. Excellent performances, especially from Julie Covington as Eva Peron, distinguish this excellent recording, making it a must for fans of the musical and Lloyd Webber's work in general.
