Over the years Andrew Lloyd Webber has made many musicals, some more successful and appealing to the public than the others. Most people will, however, agree that "Evita" remains one of his most satisfying works to this date. Numerous reasons confirm this statement. Lloyd Webber hesitated, but after his big flop with "Jeeves", he took the bait and began working on "Evita". Good for him and for the musical theatre community, since, had it been different; we would have been deprived of a first-class musical delight.

Evita is a concept album released in 1976 and produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Having successfully launched their previous show, Jesus Christ Superstar, on record in 1970, Lloyd Webber and Rice returned to the format for Evita. The album was recorded at Olympic Studios in London from April to September 1976 and released in the United Kingdom on 19 November 1976.

This book is invaluable to me. I have loved the story of Evita since I was a little girl. Now I have the best because I have all the lyric to the famous play as well as additional history.

What more can I say? A real and rare find! This was published in 1978- BEFORE the smash hit musical went to stage (you know, the one with Elaine Paige). My personal guess is it was Rice and Webber sharing the story of Evita in more detail, as well as a clever publicity tool for their pending musical. Basically "Evita" is a pictorial journey into the woman's life and world. Lloyd Webber fans: if you get your hands on a copy of this, you will not regret it. This is a fantastic piece of literary treasure. I trust you will be as enthralled and excited by it as I am.
The blurb:
"Eva Peron, second wife of Argentine dictator Juan Peron, was a legend in her time. Born of humble parentage, she rose to become the most powerful woman Latin America, had ever seen- and a potent symbol of hope and success to thousands of Argentinians. Disliked by the aristocracy and distrusted by the military, she fought for- and won- unswerving support from her beloved 'descamisados' (the shirtless ones).
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, composer and lyricist of 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat,' have charted Eva Peron's rapid rise to fame and power in this compelling photo-documentary- the official book of their opera 'EVITA'. It includes the complete lyrics (many of them revised since the release of the acclaimed double album in 1976), extensive commentaries on those lyrics which trace the lives of the Perons and discuss the roles of Che, Magaldi and other, many photographs, and an explanation of the musical development of the opera.
Strikingly original in it's inception, imaginative, stylish and powerful in its execution. Evita is a story laced with political upheaval, corruption, intrigue and passion. It is, above all, the story of one of the most remarkable women of our time."
Definitely get a copy of this one if you can people, as it won't be around forever!
