Original ‘Jaws’ soundtrack getting first ever pressing

News / Preorders / July 3, 2017

The Jaws soundtrack has been on vinyl before. But what most don’t know is a release like this is actually a re-recording for the commercial release (and shortened, 12 to 27 tracks actually). Mondo is thus releasing the “score as composed and recorded for the actual film in its first-ever vinyl release.” The 2xLP set is restored, edited and mixed “from the original studio elements for the best possible quality, approved by the composer himself.” Album co-producer Mike Matessino is directly involved. And the great James Plotkin did some additional engineering work.

The pressing is on 180-gram blue and white marble vinyl (you can also grab black), while art is by Phantom City Creative. Records will ship out in late October 2017.
