In the main title there is a stinger right as the music crescendos and the "JAWS 2" title appears on-screen. It's on the album version of the track and it's on the film version of the track sampled here. Doug, Roger or Mike M, can you confirm whether it's on the main title alternate take as well? Thanks much.

I think the original soundtrack release for JAWS 2 was already quite good and better (both in content and audio quality) then most others of this time period, but this score is so good, of course I cannot resist an Intrada special 2-CD release of it.

The alternate take is the performance that was used on the album (but without cuts), so yes, the stinger is there.

Thanks, Mike. I respect Williams' prerogative as composer and producer, but I never could understand the need for that stinger.

Looks like this will supplant The Dove as my favorite release this year!

Very nice review.

A particular cue that your site mentions, "The Shark Prowls," is another bit from the complete score that I've longed to have in soundtrack form. It's arguably one the most chilling moments of the film -- the dorsal fin appearing among the teenager's sailboats and cutting a truly scary outline against the slumbering coastline of Amity Island. It's been quite a long time since I saw the movie, but I'm remembering the theme played on either horns or trombones (i.e. low brass) and basses with quivering strings underneath for effect. I've probably got the orchestration wrong, but it's hellishly effective all the same.

Actually, it's all of the above. We've been releasing incredible music produced by both ourselves and others for three decades. :wink: Intrada's first produced album was released 30 years ago, and we've been producing multiple albums every year since. At the same time, Intrada the store has been selling all labels' fabulous releases. The more the merrier! :)

JAWS (1975) might have won the Oscar, and gotten pop radio play, and gotten all the attention.

But JAWS 2 is, in all ways that matter to me, all-too-awesome!

Thanks, Intrada.

Listening to samples now.

John Williams could (to borrow from David Raksin) "kill someone by hitting them over the head with the brass section" better than ANYONE.

Listening to it right now.

Dream come true. That's all I can say or all that really needs to be said, quite frankly. You guys did an amazing job.

My goodness, what wonders Intrada and Mr Mattesino have done with this reissue. I thought the sound was already pretty stellar but this new master just sounds so present and vivid. The low end especially is so much more powerful, without sounding at all unnatural. As I always feel with an Intrada release of familiar music, I feel as if I am present at a performance of living musicians, not just some impersonal series of noises on a record.

And to be writing these words about what is perhaps my most personally beloved score in Johnny's entire career, is just a fulfillment of truly a lifetime of hopeful thinking and dreaming. It's here, today, and it's better than I ever could have dreamed.

Thank you, Intrada. Thank you so very much.

Douglass, Roger, and the rest of the Intrada crew, I EXALT you!

I am near tears, listening to JAWS 2, which just came in the mail today. The sound is unmatched, it's so crisp and clear, I can actually make out the fingers pricking the harp strings, the breaths that blow the horns, and the bows as they hit the strings. This is another immeasurable release from what has truly become THE label for soundtracks of all eras and genres. In fact, it is in my opinion the most beautiful and outstanding release to have come from the Intrada pipeline. Then again, I haven't received my JAWS yet, so I may be speaking prematurely.

My heart stopped so many times during the "Main Title", fluttered in disbelief at "The Shark Prowls", SOARED with "More Sailing", waltzed to "Ballet for Divers" and as of this moment, I am still reaping the stereophonic benefits. It just goes on and on. I cannot even begin to put into words how terrific hearing this release feels.

Bottom line, you guys are the pinnacle of what soundtrack production should stand for. This release has long been a dream (and I told you this in person!) for many, many years, and to finally hear it, I am almost incapable of fully believing it, and more so, the quality overall.

Thank you INTRADA, you are a gift to world of music (and consumerism alike), and you will forever have my most humble gratitude for all you have done, and all you will do (DECEMBER can't come quick enough - and you know why).

Keep up he good work. I'll be here on the front lines!

Namaste

Thanks, Mike. I respect Williams' prerogative as composer and producer, but I never could understand the need for that stinger.


I was never a fan of that stinger in the album also, but I'm happy to note that it seems better integrated in the film version of the track, where the balance seems better with the stinger at a lower level.

This is a fantastic release indeed. All the moments I've wanted for years such as the Charred Body and the complete The Big Jolt are finaly there! But I also liked the other shorter additions such as The Shark Prowls and the few seconds at the end of Sailing.

Another interesting piece is Rescue Party that was mixed with Brody Misunderstood in the album. I always thought that it was for an extended scene of Brody Misunderstood that was cut from the movie, but now discovered that it is unused music for the scene on which they rescue Tina. It is intersesting how both Jaws and Jaws 2 didn't suffered from tracked music/tracks being used in different scenes than the ones for which they were compoosed, but both had a lot of music faded out/omitted in the final edition. It was really another era when using less music in films made the music much more effective when it was used.

Jaws 2 is one of my favourite scores and I never thought I would have it complete and in such good sound. Another fantastic release from Intrada.

So glad people are finally getting to enjoy this! You're right about the lack of tracking, but there is one exception in JAWS 2: the beginning of "Fire On Board" is tracked over the start of "Sinking The Catamaran." In the original JAWS, part of the "Wild Shark Theme" that ends Disc 1 was tracked over a section of "The Pier Incident."
