Starlight Express has been recorded a fair few times over the years, and certainly in interesting ways! It'd be boring if they just recorded the cast performing the show, right? right? Well, most of the time they haven't. The only complete live recording is the 1989 German recording. But all the other recordings, concept albums, EPs and highlights, are certainly interesting!
Also, a show this spectacular has made a lot of TV Appearances over the years. Some of these have even survived to be uploaded to Youtube!
The most up-to-date recording of Starlight was released by the German production in January 2015, however the recording dates from June 2013. The release suffered significant production delays and was not available for its intended release around the German production's 25th Anniversary.
