    This morning while cleaning out my shed in the back yard, I found one of the coolest things I've ever found in my shed. It's the origional set from 1970 of 2 albums, the score, and the lyric book from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "Jesus Christ Superstar".

    I thought that this might be worth some money since its all the origional stuff so I decided to look on Ebay to see if anyone else was selling it and seeing how much it was going for, but I couldn't find anyone selling the whole set.

    I'm not interested in selling it because I think it is so cool, but does anyone know how much something like this might be worth? All the things on Ebay I saw were going for about 5 dollars, so I don't really have high hopes that I've struck gold or anything, but I still think it's interesting.

    "Groovy" . . .

    "Right On!" . . .

    "Far Out!"

    "Make Love, Not War"



    Wow, I'm havin' a hippie flashback. It's the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, according to astrologers, when the stars all line up and the world begins a period of peace and love!

    Come to think of it baby, let's go make love (not war), drop out, reject our values and go live on a commune where we all share EVERYTHING in perfect harmony and peace.

    "Uhhhh, hey man . . . where's my bag of pot?"

    "WHAT? . . . you and your friends smoked it ALL with my old lady to get her high and then all made "love" with her while most of us on the commune were out working to feed us all?"

    "That's IT! I'm gonna kick your _____."



    Ahh, the Sixties . . . a starry-eyed time when a generation (mine) thought that they were going to be able to change human nature.

    Seriously though . . . to the record . . .

    Enjoy listening to it but don't think it will bring too much today. Virtually everyone in the baby boomer generation had a set, so they aren't very rare today. Still, the music was so fresh at the time, and so exciting.

    "Gimme A Head With Hair" today means something soooo much different to us males . . . than it did back then when we all had a lot of it! ;-)

    Sincerely,

    Tom Turner
