The glossy magazine accompanying the Observer newspaper ran an article on the previews of the original production of Starlight Express. The photos of the early preview costumes are unique!
Images from "Mercedes in Aller Welt" - German Mercedes Magazine, 1985.
Interestingly the second two images are of the later half of the first year of Starlight Express' life, Tom Jobe having replaced Jeffrey Daniel after the first six months. The first two photos are from previews, as were the other images accompanying the article, which were images also published in the 1984 Brochure.
Advertising Flyer from london, approx. 1991. Obviously "No Comeback" had been cut by this point, with Electra crashing with Greaseball and Caboose.

|When Starlight Express first opened in london, several songs were released as chart singles. Andrew Lloyd Webber was said to have written the whole show deliberately to create chart success. Unfortunately, none of the songs made any impact, despite well-known names singing them. Jeffrey Daniel, who played Electra, was a member of the group "Shalamar" and was a star in his own right. However his single release of AC/DC did not catch the public imagination, despite this stunning cover art.|
