Oddly, I wasn't introduced to Andrew Lloyd Webber by any of his shows. Or at least, I wasn't introduced to Andrew Lloyd Webber's style by any of his shows.

When I was about seven or eight years old, I had a video tape of an animated version of Jack and the Beanstalk that I watched religiously. (At the time, I thought it was a German movie. Actually, it was a German dub of a Japanese movie.) I didn't know this at the time, but the movie's songs and score were very, very, very influenced by ALW.

Two examples: Starting at the 6:02 mark.; starting at the 5:01 mark.

So, years later, I'm listening to clips from the Jesus Christ Superstar concept album on Amazon, trying to decide whether or not I should get it. (And by "get it", I mean "check it out from the library and copy it.") I start with "Gethsemane", and it sounds vaguely familiar. New music often sounds familiar to me, but I can't decide what exactly "Gethsemane" is reminding me of. Then I listen to the clip from "Pilate and Christ", and all uncertainty is dispelled.

So I do decide to get Jesus Christ Superstar. So depending on your point of view, my introduction to ALW was either Tom, Crosby, und die Mäusebrigade or JCS.

I always knew of him thanks to my family, but the show that made me like his music was Phantom of the Opera.

Definitly Phantom of the Opera in Vienna!
I´ve heard and seen the title song in one show called "Wurlitzer" with Steve Harley and Sarah Brightman and the Vienna Cast with Alexander Goebel and Luzia Nistler, the complete CD from Vienna and the show themself.
