OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: “THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING: THE IMPACT AND LEGACY OF JAWS” ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK CD by MICHAEL MCCORMACK
Just as I told him back in May 2006, this album is dedicated to my favorite actor, Mr. Roy Scheider (1933-2008). I share this dedication with John Williams, Steven Spielberg & the rest of the great cast and crew of the film “Jaws” and the many generations of wonderful fans this timeless, classic film has inspired and entertained. – Michael McCormack
This original soundtrack includes 38 tracks consisting of new instrumental music and two sea shanties inspired by, and meant to evoke, the impact and legacy of the enduring classic film, JAWS. Two newly recorded vocal tracks on the CD, “Show Me the Way to Go Home” and “Spanish Ladies” – feature dynamic lead guitar by Nashville-based guitarist/producer Greg Parker with vocals by Michael McCormack.
Prior to its official release on August 14th, the soundtrack CD for “THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING” will be available at JAWSFEST (in the JAWSTORE from AUGUST 9-11) and available at MichaelMccormackMusic.com, Amazon.com and CDBaby.com beginning AUGUST 14th, 2012
