We beseech thee: dance, dance, dance, mismatch your socks and think '70s with this instant Bible that even atheists find fun to sing along with. The lite-rock hippie classic is often overshadowed by its Hair-ier cousin, but Stephen Schwartz's retelling of Matthew's gospel is great for high schools 'cause it's tuneful, youthful and inspired. So prepare ye the way for a heartfelt if dated recording. * * * *
