And here's a video of the segment that picture came from - found on Google Video by Adam (invaderatham@yahoo.com) here:

      http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=988209650819812250&q=Jesus+Christ+Superstar&hl=en   

The Google Video poster (couldn't find the name) posted this blurb about the video:

"From the Rolling Stone Magazine 10th Anniversary TV Special in 1977, found ... on an unlabeled Beta tape at a flea market. Featuring Ted Neeley (the guy who played "Jesus" in "Jesus Chris Superstar"), featuring Patti Labelle, Yvonne Elliman and several others."  


       

         TV Pilot (The Ted Neeley Special) (1977)                                   Details to come
          Note: This listing is courtesy of  Ann Stickford (thumperdances2@sbcglobal.net) , one of our newest Tedheads. She tells me she has it listed as The 
                       Ted Neeley Special - a 90-minute pilot - from when she met Ted years back, so I am listing it for the time being. 

          McLaren's Riders (1977) (TV)                                                    T. Wood
                      A pilot that aired as crime drama on May 17, 1977.    Ted starred as one of two plainclothes motorcycle cops.


Thanks, Ann.

                        NOTE:  I will have some pictures of this pilot posted shortly, courtesy of Ann Stickford (thumperdances2@sbcglobal.net) - thanks, Ann!


          
Winter Tour (1976-1977)                   Young Man (?)                  PBS - Details to come

), one of our newest Tedheads posted this listing on Ted's List)

         Dusty Springfield Show (1975-6)       Guest Artist       
          Note: This listing is courtesy of  Ann Stickford (thumperdances2@sbcglobal.net) , one of our newest Tedheads. She tells me that this may, in effect,  
                       be "A Touch of Gold" (listed above. I will post more on this as soon as I receive the info.

       


        Thanks again to Ann Stickford (thumperdances2@sbcglobal.net) for these (for TV shots from the '70's, they're pretty good!)


From Rossana Casolari - one of our Tedheads in Italy - (magicoblio@hotmail.com),
here is a little gem she found, circa 1975 - could be Dusty Springfield or The Midnight Special :

 

        Starsky & Hutch (1975)                    "Lionel Rigger"/"Targets Without a Badge: Part 3"
   
                                                                                                                                 (episode #4.20) 3/16/79

        Starsky & Hutch (1975)                    "Lionel Rigger"/"Targets Without a Badge: Part 2"
   
                                                                                                                                 (episode #4.19) 3/11/79

        Starsky & Hutch (1975)                    "Lionel Rigger"/"Targets Without a Badge: Part 1"
   
                                                                                                                                 (episode #4.18) 3/6/79

                     
(NOTE:  While this is a 3-part episode, Ted's character is killed off in Part 1, with some of his scenes shown before the
                                             Part 2 recap, which probably explains why the
IMDb database only lists 2 of the 3 parts in Ted's TV credits.)


Trade Ad from Variety:  Ted as Lionel Rigger in the 
3-part Starsky & Hutch episode:  "Targets Without 
A Badge" (A.K.A. "The Snitch").

NOTEIMDb database listed Ted's appearance as part of the 3-part episode "Targets Without A Badge"
                            (episodes #3.18, 19, & 20 - air dates 3/6, 11,& 16/75). When these were aired here last on TNT, Ted was in
                            the preview for Part 2 - but the previews were from "The Snitch". Apparently, it is listed under both 
                            names, depending upon which Starsky and Hutch website you may access. Shevonia (Von) Thompson
                           (dabaone@yahoo.com) and I have been e-mailing for a while, since Von was in the service.  Von recently
                           joined Ted's list, and sent me some of the Starsky & Hutch captures posted below, then posted the website
                          link listed below to Ted's list.  Thanks, Von!  Enjoy, everyone!):

THE SNITCH CAPTURES

 


       
American Bandstand (1975)             Guest w/Disco Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes (episode #2188) 5/31/75

        Dragnet (TV)                                    (Billing onscreen for "Ted Neeley Five")
                    
(Courtesy of Stormy (otherwise known as Lisa Stormy Porter-Reiley) (stormy62@gallatinriver.net), we have this
                    
  interesting little tidbit:  "I was looking around on the web and found your site. Thought you might find this
                            interesting; I was watching an old episode of Dragnet, and in one of their shots they showed a club in Los
                           Angeles that had "Ted Neeley Five" on the marquis. Looked around on the web, but found nothing. But that's
                           got to be a cool tidbit of Neeley nostalgia.")
                 

                                  "The Tough guy!"                                                                        I think this was around the "Of Mice and Men" time.
