This week we're excited to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first summer blockbuster, JAWS, the film that defined Steven Spielberg and John Williams' careers and continues to electrify audiences today.
Leading off, we're re-pressing our out-of-print JAWS soundtrack, drawn from the original recordings in an all-new "Blood in the Water" vinyl colorway. We're also bringing you two new t-shirts and we've restocked our 2-pin set inspired by the original JAWS one sheet.
As always, all new music releases go on sale on Wednesdays at Noon CST, and this week that also includes the JAWS t-shirts and pins.
JAWS – Music from the Motion Picture
One of the finest achievements in film music and quite possibly the most iconic score of all time, John Williams’ JAWS is an absolute essential for soundtrack collectors.
While the Grammy-winning 1975 MCA album was a re-recording, Mondo’s double vinyl 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.
Pressed on 2x 180 Gram "Blood in the Water" Vinyl (Translucent Blue with Red Color in Color). Also available on 2x 180 Gram Black Vinyl.

JAWS – Farewell & Adieu T-Shirt
Artist Ryan Duggan's colorful, elegiac design salutes the good – though doomed – ship Orca, and the final showdown between man and shark as seen in Steven Spielberg's 1975 blockbuster, JAWS. His design is punctuated by a verse from salty sailor Quint's mournful sea shanty.
