Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Peter Benchley's bestselling novel about the sobering impact of shark attacks on a New England beach town's tourist season gave director Steven Spielberg the perfect opportunity to craft a suspenseful action-drama. An immediate blockbuster upon release in 1975, the movie is being hailed as a classic 25 years later by being released on DVD. The 20 minutes of additional score and interviews with Spielberg and composer John Williams may be the strongest enticements for anyone who already owns the original soundtrack, but anyone who's put off purchasing this most identifiable score now has the temptation of improved sonic clarity to contend with as well. Since so much of Williams's score--at the time, his second for Spielberg, before going on to ET and Schindler's List, among others--depends on the nearly silent tension buttressed by deep, probing notes, this widescreen audio mapping only heightens the drama. "Shark Attack", "The Great Shark Chase", and "The Shark Approaches", along with the main theme, represent what empathic movie scoring is all about. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Masterpiece 18 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Yes, finally the classic soundtrack gets the treatment it deserves. The original was re-recorded and adapted, but nowhere near as entertaining. This version is much more enjoyable. It plays from beginning to end in order. Lots of unreleased tracks including the piano led Father and Son and The Empty Raft which was left off the original LP, is one of the highlights of this CD.

Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars JAWS: 25th Anniversary edition 14 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some years ago i obtained a recording of the original soundtrack which came out not long after the film was first released in cinemas, it was very disappointing as i found that it was not the original score but a lacklustre re-recording with lots of the best sections of the score missing. This is the REAL soundtrack as originally composed, it contains all the music from the film including segments that didn't quite make it. My favourite tracks are The Great Shark Chase and Father and Son. Also contains a booklet with some great photography and interesting insights from Williams and Spielberg. It is also very cheap so i would get a copy asap, soundtracks seem to have a habit of fluctuating greatly in price. Excellent, a work of pure genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It! 2 Jun 2013
By Tux
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I still love the music from the original soundtrack and it hasn't diminished over the many years since the film was first released. Those few chords still send a shiver down one's spine, especially if near the sea at the time. A very clever piece of musical score.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for Father and Son alone 11 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jaws is brilliant and part of its brilliance is John Williams' score (as is the case for so many Spielberg films). Although attention tends to focus on the notorious "Jaws Theme", for me my favourite tracks are "Promenade (Tourists on the Menu)" (called "Montage" on this CD and not as long as Promenade), the lilting harp/piano finale of "Hand to Hand Combat" (the last 40 seconds of Blown to Bits) and the End Titles as the heroes swim to shore. However, one glaring omission from the original soundtrack was the missing theme from scene between Brody and his youngest son. The good news is that it is now available on this collection.

it is a shame that "Montage" cuts short the previous version of "Promenade", so I will keep the original version, but this is an excellent release.

5.0 out of 5 stars truly first class 1 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Jaws" along with "Star wars" surely must be John Williams crowning glory. Williams can do no wrong in my opinion outclassing virtually all opposition over the years and there have been many fine glorious composers to rival Williams like John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith, Lalo Schfrin, James Horner to name a but few but Williams talent for melody and hooks in virtually every score he does is unparalleled.

The "Jaws" soundtrack is a masterpiece of film composition from start to finish, Williams transcends delicate subtle pieces to brash danger cues in the same track with effortless ease whilst completely enveloping you in it's sheer brilliance. One of Jaws early test screenings was missing John Williams music from it and when the studio head left the theatre he was asked what he thought of the movie? He answered that it was "just ok".... Jaws producer David Brown commented sometime later that of course it was "Just ok" it was missing Williams score! That is the power a great score can bring to a movie and this one is easily in the top 5 soundtracks of all time in my opinion.

At last the Jaws soundtrack has been remastered and extended,so you now get the complete score in it's entirety!. The original release was missing some great cues like the "Father and Son" one from the scene where Brody( Roy Scheider) plays with his son at the dinner table so this is all very welcome indeed.

I can't praise this enough. I think both the "Star Wars" and "JAWS" are masterpieces in film scoring so do yourself a very large favour and get this asap.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you'll ever need 21 Sep 2010
By ymo1965
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If your looking to purchase the jaws soundtrack then the anniversary release is definitely the version to go for. There has been other versions released over the years, but this is the one you'll be needing. I can't stop playing it and it still manages to send those shivers down your spine, even after all these years. Powerful and simply a work of genius. Buy it now!!
