It was released the year after the ''other'' 70's-rock-musical-about-Jesus ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar'', and definitely benefited from the resultant hype; furthermore, it lacked the DarkerAndEdgier quality that put a lot of Christians off the [[AndrewLloydWebber Lloyd Webber]] offering (if anything, ''Godspell'' is LighterAndSofter than the way the Bible is preached in many churches!). One of its songs, ''Day By Day'', was released as a single and achieved some success that way; it's toured about a gazillion times; there are a number of cast recordings out; [[Film/{{Godspell}} and there was a movie in 1973]].
