John Williams Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity
Close Encounters Of The Third Kind is Steven Spielberg's now classic 1977 science fiction film. The masterful score was composed, conducted and produced by John Williams and is a mixture of eerie suspense and tremendous emotive bombast, complete with hair-raising moments and the great big playful musical conversation between the mothership and the humans. Williams' "five-tone" motif for Close Encounters has become ingrained in pop culture.
The album was a critical and commercial success, peaking at #17 on the US Billboard album chart and reaching #40 in the UK. John Williams won two Grammy Awards for his score (Best Original Film Score and Best Instrumental Composition). A disco version of the five-note motif, though not part of the original score, is included on this Hybrid SACD version as a bonus track making this an essential acquisition for collectors and movie and music fans!
