I have frankly never understood sound quality. If all the notes that were written end up sonically to some format then great. A CD sounds like a cassette, sounds like an 8 track ,sounds like an LP to me. The differances are really only artificial. The music to Jaws represents a man at his absolute best creative period. Who cares if there's a little hissing (or whatever poor quality sounds like), all the music is there to listen to, enjoy, study, etc. This website seems to have been created so that film music can be honored, discussed, and studied. The latter seems to be seriously lacking. Why not study how the rhythms corresponds to the film's own rhythm or pace? Why not study the orchestration, or even most obviously the harmony and melody? Who cares about a "pop" or a scratch in the re-re-re-release of a 1970 re-issue? To be bogged down by such minutae shows a serious lack of understanding and interest in the very matter for which it seems this website was created
