Here’s a great gift idea for the JAWS fan in your life! The soundtrack to the JAWS documentary The Shark is Still Working. It’s on sale for just 9.95 plus free USA shipping through December 12th. Click on the page “JAKE SENT ME” over at www.michaelmccormackmusic.com for the sale price.
Our composer, Mike McCormack, poured his heart and soul into the music for our documentary. His music evokes JAWS, while not being an imitation of John Williams’ famous score. Don’t miss Mike’s rendition of “Show Me the Way to Go Home“, the song sung by Quint, Hooper, and Brody on the Orca. Mike is joined by Greg Parker on Lead Guitar for this song, as well as on a new version of “Spanish Ladies”. You can get the cd at Mike’s website, CD Baby, and Amazon.com.
LIMITED EDITION – featuring 38 Digitally Mastered tracks, full color disc artwork includes a behind-the-scenes photo shot from the set of JAWS by Cal Acord in 1974.
This original soundtrack by Michael McCormack (Composer) includes 38 tracks consisting of new instrumental music and two sea shanties inspired by and meant to evoke and celebrate the impact and legacy of the enduring classic film JAWS.
The UK-only exclusive Steelbook version of JAWS on Blu-Ray was released on September 4, 2012.

All the content of the Blu-Ray is the same, including the Blu-Ray exclusive documentary The Shark is Still Working as well as the Making of JAWS documentary that originally appeared on the JAWS Collector’s Edition Laserdisc a few years ago.
UK-based New Empress Magazine created two short videos in honor of the JAWS Blu-Ray release, one about the JAWS release, and one about the JAWS sequels.

The Shark Is still Working: The Impact & Legacy of Jaws (SD, 101 min) — Another fantastic documentary, which can be watched sequentially or individually in ten parts, from the point of view of the movie’s impact on the filmmaking industry. The entertaining retrospect comes with a variety of interviews from those involved with the film and those greatly inspired by it, such as Kevin Smith and M. Night Shyamalan. From the script’s story and special effects to the music and marketing, the doc is a great breakdown of the production and an in-depth look at the different areas that went into the movie’s making, giving an impression of how it has influenced the industry in that respect. This is a worthwhile and recommended watch.
Finally! We can finally announce that our Jaws documentary The Shark is Still Working has a release date – 8/14/2012 – as a exclusive on the JAWS Blu-ray! Check out Universal’s new JAWS Blu-ray website: http://jawsonbluray.com
