Very interesting release from Mondo. This is a double vinyl edition of John Williams‘ iconic score to Steven Spielberg’s 1975 film Jaws, however the original vinyl release back in the day was actually a re-recording, whereas this 2LP set presents the entire Oscar-winning score as composed and recordedfor the actual film. 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. This is on vinyl for the first time.
Kscope issue the ex-Mansun frontman’s 2017 album as a double-disc special edition, pairing it with a bonus ‘Live at Scala’ CD. Good value if you didn’t pick up the album last year, annoying if you did. The live disc also gets its own standalone 2LP vinyl release.
Belle and Sebastian / How To Solve Our Human Problems, Parts 1-3
Belle and Sebastian bring together their three most recent EPs for this new release. The 15 tracks are on one CD or you can order the 3 x 12″ box set (which is why the vinyl is pricier than you might expect).
Eminem‘s River, which features Ed Sheeran, has already been number one in the UK singles chart, but Interscope are still issuing a two-track CD single. Not exactly great value in the UK at over £8 for two tracks, so go for the German price, if you’re interested.
