Jaws was awesome, Jaws 2 less so, but it still made them do a third one with an all new director, cast and composer. The nerve! Well, this time the gimmick was 3D, the new craze in the early 80s. The audience could actually wear those silly cardboard 3D glasses to see the movie in actual 3D. What an amazing time! 3D was only for cinemas at the time so when it was time for television or VHS, the movie was simply called Jaws III and without it’s gimmick, well.. In this all new adventure, Joe Alves directed some prominent stars to be fair in Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett, Jr. Quaid played the role of Mike Brody which in fairness had been acted by two different actors before him. Sharks in SeaWorld is the premise where an attack happens on a group of unsuspecting water skiers while doing a live show. Some maniac decides to trap a baby shark for attraction money and when it dies, the momma is not too happy about it. I mentioned a new composer and Alan Parker which was frankly a big risk after employing John Williams in the two previous films. Parker had done some British television shows, but this was his first big feature. The album situation on this is unknown. Intrada Records released a straight LP-to-CD release in 2007, but at only 36 minutes you wonder if there is any more music for it.

Jaws 3-D is remarkably fun and yes, even without John Williams. The theme is used, although sparsely. There’s new material to excite and most of all, I like what Parker did with the underscoring. He made it even darker than Williams, and it creates a really interesting soundscape. I’m enjoying this score very much and I can’t wait to listen to number 4 by Michael Small.

Overly cleaned-up tape transfer

Reviewer: James Burt
Not a terrible score but not in the same league as John Williams. Unfortunately someone has decided this apparent tape source needed a cleanup, probably to remove tape hiss and give it a more pristine appearance for its 96K transfer. Bad decision in my opinion. The artifacts caused by this choice has completely changed the character of the orchestra, especially in the high strings and woodwinds and made it, for me, difficult to listen to. Hopefully this is not going to be a trend in transfers for older analog titles to hi-def sound because I would much rather listen to a CD (or cassette tape) than a 96K version that sounds like this one does.
