Heaven On Their Mind (Single Version) // Murray Head
I pride myself in having a pretty good collection of rare and hard to find Jesus Christ Superstar recordings. This is about as an interesting of Jesus Christ Superstar rarity that there is. Heaven On Their Minds was released as a single before the original Jesus Christ Superstar album came out in 1970. The lyrics are almost completely different due to the fact that they did not want the lyrics to the single to be as potentially controversial as the song was presented in the context of the full piece. Backup singers where also added to the piece. The B side to this single was an instrumental version of Strange Thing Mystifying. It’s an odd little piece but I find it really fun to listen to.
