Mondo Releases JAWS: Music from the Motion Picture 2XLP + Posters!

JAWS – One of the most iconic film scores of all-time is being released on vinyl in a 2XLP edition along with some new posters as well. Check it all out below.

Per Mondo:

This week we are beyond thrilled to celebrate one of the greatest films ever made, featuring one of the most iconic soundtracks of all time, JAWS!

We love this score and can’t quite believe that not only do we get to give it a vinyl treatment, BUT we’re releasing the full score as it appears in the film. (This is the first time this original version has ever been released on vinyl as the original soundtrack LP, and subsequent reissues were all actually re-recorded cues made especially for that LP.) The album is produced by Mike Matessino who painstakingly restored, edited and remastered every cue for this release. John William’s score has never sounded better.

The full package art is by Phantom City Creative who has done an absolutely immense job. In addition to the 2XLP, we’ll be releasing the front cover artwork as a poster today at 2PM (CT) on mondotees.com. There are three versions available, one of which will be premiering at San Diego Comic-Con this month.

We’ll resume our regularly-scheduled Music Weekly’s next Monday!

One of the finest achievements in film music and quite possibly the most iconic score of all time, John Williams’ score to JAWS is absolutely essential for soundtrack collectors. While the Grammy-winning 1975 MCA album was a re-recording, our 2XLP set presents the entire Academy Award-winning score as composed and recorded for the actual film in its first-ever vinyl release. Album co-producer Mike Matessino restored, edited and mixed the music from the original studio elements for the best possible quality, approved by the composer himself.

John Williams won a much-deserved Oscar for his work on JAWS, with a score that not only manages to accentuate the terror of the onscreen action without resorting to cheap stingers, but also layers in beautifully understated cues to offset the horror with much needed relief. Quiet and calm one minute, then ratcheting up the tension with screaming strings the next when the great white attacks.
