John Williams created what might be cinema’s most iconic theme of all time with two-note “shark” motif for Spielberg’s 1975 masterpiece Jaws. The “Best Score” Academy Award was a result. For 1978’s sequel under director Jeannot Szwarc and returning star Roy Scheider, John Williams anchors with famed motif for low strings, but from there creates all-new material that widens scope of both sea-worthy adventure and terrifying action. Rousing material for sailing sequences balance with ferocious shark attack sequences on water skiers, helicopter, various boaters. For finish to score, Williams fashions incredibly exciting finale with stunning fortissimo coda, one of his most dazzling! This spanish LS Scores 2-CD set first offers entire score in picture sequence with several previously unreleased cues, follows with alternates including different version of rousing finish. Disc 2 presents remastered presentation of complete original 1978 MCA Records album. Williams prepared MCA album from both used, unused takes of his score, re-sequencing and re-editing many for listening purposes in 1978. This release allows listeners opportunity to enjoy both Williams’ edited cues and their unedited counterparts, including three different version of opening “Main Title” sequence. Complete with full colour inlays and sleeves. Superb!
