Prologue: One Ring To Rule Them All. The Shire. The Passing of the Elves. Saruman the White. Appropriately enough for the film adaptation of one fantasy literature's most enduring favorites, Howard Shore's score for Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings is traditional and majestic, using sweeping strings, brass, and choral sections to create moments of fire-and-brimstone menace as well heroic triumph. An ominous, bombastic feel runs through much of the score, particularly on pieces like A Journey in the Dark, Flight to the Ford, and A Knife in the Dark, but Shore also includes respites such as the sweetly elfin, Celtic-tinged Concer.

For fans of any of The Lord of the Rings films, the Fellowship of the RingComplete Recordings is an essential experience. TEXTS Choral lyrics in The Lord of the Rings films reference the past histories and broader concepts of Tolkiens universe. Several passages directly quote the authors writing, though the majority of the verses are original, scribed by Philippa Boyens, Fran Walsh, David Salo and, for Enyas work, Roma Ryan. Shore often uses the texts in a nonlinear fashion, much as one would find in modern opera. lord of the rings.

Should not be so expensive... also the red of the vinyl is so ugly... should have gone with a nice, simple, classy black. Especially at the price. We don't even have The Hobbit yet...
Daft comment. The red vinyl is beautiful, and on release this was an absolute bargain.
100dol for a x5lp in box with book don't look like Something crazy.The red records look very classy, the box is georgous, the second hand price is only the reflection of his beauty.
Strange, why is this (so much) more expensive than the other 2??
Because the label was silly and pressed way fewer of these than they did for the following two movies. So there will be people who will never be able to own the whole set without throwing a lot of cash for this one.
Ahh, finally, the LOTR soundtracks on vinyl. I went for these release, hoping to FINALLY get a decend sounding soundtrack (those CDs really are nothing special). I layed the first vinyl on my turntable and afer a few minutes, I couldn't help but draw a wide smile across my face. Sure, it's not groundbreaking, but it's DEFINITELY the best this music has ever sounded. Truly, the LOTR score has NEVER sounded more majestic, more dynamic, more clear. This is an astounding release, that I recommend to any fan of these soundtracks. When I listened to Bilbo's party, I could literally hear all of the instruments with perfect clarity. The Bridge of Khazad-Dum sound powerful and totally over-bass-whelming (can this be a new word? Did I just coin a new word?). The box is very pretty, if somewhat weak. You have to be careful with it (which I expect every person who buys such a set to be). The booklet is made of quality paper, really glad when I saw it. And the third of the map of Middle-Earth is extremely cool.All in all, a fantastic release with clear and deep sound. A true collector's item, through and through. Buy it before these prices skyrocket.
At 27.07.18 realease the Limited box of Two towers on Blue Vinyl! Limited to 8000 Copys!I have reserved my copy today on e.m.p
i have pre-Order The Return of the king and the Collection is complete :)
yes!! you can pre-order the vinyl on amazon ! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FW4H6F9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
September, it seems: http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/the-lord-of-the-rings-the-return-of-the-king-5lp-coloured-vinyl-3cdblu-ray/At least ten words must be entered.
between the first and the second box lay about 4 months!i would say that "the return of the king" christmas comes on the market
Do you know when the Vinyl of " Return of the King" release will come out ?
thank you for the hint, i almost missed it :D
I just ordered from Amazon.com again. Still way cheaper than ordering from within Germany or any other EU country :D
Preordered this from Barnes and Nobles and it is fantastic. I would recommend listening with headphones, the pressing is a bit quiet....but there is absolutely no surface noise and there are only like 3 very quiet pops throughout the entire 5 records. Highly recommend..
Is there plans to reprint sell more of these? I just noticed that it even existed and do not want to pay the huge markup.
Here ya go buddy, I bought mine on ebay for $121, screw the scalpers. https://www.ebay.com/i/HOWARD-SHORE-THE-LORD-RINGS-FEL-NEW-VINYL-RECORD-/142806418876?afsrc=1&rmvSB=true
This desperately needs a reissue. I preordered it from Amazon.ca as soon as it went up, it was out of stock on release day, so I ordered it on Banres and Noble when it said it was in stock, wait weeks only for the order to be canceled and I refuse to pay double or more from a third party. I don't care about the fancy case or coloured records, I just want the music in hand. They obviously severely underestimated the demand for this and many people seem to have been left out in the cold on it.
It was up on Amazon.com for at least a month until it sold out.
Try this seller, he still has a few copies left at a great price. https://www.ebay.com/i/HOWARD-SHORE-THE-LORD-RINGS-FEL-NEW-VINYL-RECORD-/142806418876?afsrc=1&rmvSB=true
If you just want the music why don't you buy the CD/Blu-ray box? Anyway, you can order the 5 LP boxset on Amazon.it, the cheapest available Amazon store price right now.
European units were sent inside a fit-to-box package with sponge parts! All inside a larger Amazon box.Very beautiful package - resembles the original CDs boxes.Copy 4002 / 5000 - Portugal.
This was shipped to me with the box set snugly housed inside an LP mailer which was then placed inside a significantly larger box stuffed tight with packing paper so the inner box didn't move around. I received it in really excellent condition when sent in this way. It's a beautiful box set, the liner notes are quite extensive, and most importantly the mastering and pressing are top notch. This sounds superb, dynamic, just an epic box set. Can't wait for the Twin Towers set to come out.
Unfortunately mine arrived in very poor packaging from Amazon and as it was an overseas shipment (USA - UK) my box suffered slightly for it. Specifically; scuffing on the four corners of the top and bottom left of the box, and a tear on the bottom left wall (which I suspect a quick dab of unnoticeable glue will fix. But other than that I can't say I fault the overall quality of the box badly. Everything else seems stable and glued down properly.I do feel for those that ended up with anything worse than this :(I contacted Amazon about the packaging and the damage that was caused by it, and of course they couldn't replace it so I got a $50 refund. Which is $50 towards the The Two Towers I suppose!Listening to the first disc now and it's just gorgeous - having the liner notes in 12" size just seals the deal.And what's with the little 12"x24" poster? I'm guessing we'll be getting the rest of the map with the next couple of releases! mind you, it's only a small section of the map - which tells me 3 pieces more might not cover us all the way to Mordor, which means perhaps we should expect The Hobbit to be reissued on vinyl as well?
I managed a 35 dollar refund... Even though I managed a refund I'm still disappointed that the packaging was so fragile.
Yeah it looks like each box will contain 1/3 of a then bigger map. Depends on how big they make each part of the map. A map with Mordor on it doesn't really fit in with The Hobbit though. I'd assume if they do the same with it they will do a more Hobbit themed map ;)
My copy arrived yesterday. I have the same complaint as some people here. The packaging is really flimsy and already falling apart.A shame considering how beautiful the box looks. I'm tempted to put it together with super glue or something. Otherwise happy with the purchase, but for $100+ i'm disappointed in the box quality.
We contacted Amazon about it and they offered us a 30% refund so we decided to take that and we will source a box that holds either each of the three sets vinyl or 3 slimmer boxes for each release. Repair the box and hope the others in the series will be better crafted.
Sellers are quoting items as sealed & mint but also with the no out of 5000. On my copy, the number was hidden by the track listing insert, so not sure how this is possible...
Easy, turn the box set upside-down. gently rub the back plastic so it loses friction / static contact with the rear insert that is covering the number. Make sure the spine edge of the insert isn't just turning over the corner as this will make it harder to move. If this is the case turn the box set on it's side, spine edge up. and with your thumb nail on the very edge of the paper insert nudge it so it is clear of the spine edge. Turn the box set back the way it was, upside down and repeat with the finger nail at the very bottom edge of the paper insert. You can nudge it down a couple of mm at a time until the paper is clear of the number. I have done this with a spare copy and it worked perfectly without tearing the plastic or marking the paper or box in any way. The most important parts are to make sure the plastic loses contact with the paper by slow, gentle rubbing of the plastic and to make sure the edge of the paper is clear of the spine so it slides easily down rather than across.
Hi,does anybody know when the next box "The two Towers" will be released?BRChristian
Amazon Germany says it will be released on July 1st 2018! ;-)
I hope around Christmass or my next birthday hahah… :v
Would be nice/interesting to see where some of the 5000 pieces go :)Maybe some join in telling where beginning with:4354 in Austria
1006/5000 Seattle, WA. Low number = close to Amazon source?
European units were sent inside a fit-to-box package with sponge parts (Amazon France) all inside a larger Amazon box.Copy 4002 / 5000 - Portugal.
2515/5000 Belgium. Shipped from USA. Had to glue it together a bit, but now it's perfect.
1310/5000 in Australia - Amazon shipped and arrived without an issue
2380 / 5000 has found itself in the UK after being shipped out from Amazon USA!
My copy from jpc.de. 4498 / 5000 Goes to Schwerte,Germany :)
3220 / 5000 : France...ordered on fnac.com. Great packaging .
Box number 3498 came to Finland. Got it yesterday :P
#1911 Germany. Just got my copy quite a few days earlier then what Amazon.com 'predicted'. Sweeeeeet! :)
Mine is 2935 - I'm in UK arrived before release date
1507/5000 Riverside, California. Being a huge fan, this is a dream come true.
Great pressing, great sound whit some pop...not perfect but great !
Arrived sealed and the damage was evident through the plastic. The sound of the vinyl is lovely but the damage to the box is so that storing this upright is a no no. The spine is horribly off too. it is a good 3mm right of center.The trouble with the box is that it will fail completely on the two bottom seams and a premium priced product simply should not be so poorly made.
hi do you have pictures of the damage please? pm me if possible, thanks
hi do you have pictures of the damage please? pm me if possible, thanks
The vinyl sound great so we decided to keep it with a 30% refund from Amazon and will source another box to house the vinyl. I will listen to these fairly often so it will be worth storing them away from the box and just displaying the series once the others are released. A bit of a let down though considering how limited this is. I would expect a wooden box for the price to be honest.
I had the same problem some others had when I opened mine today. I thought it was just because it was shipped with absolutely no padding whatsoever but the “collectible box” does seem to be made pretty poorly. All the faux page corners have split at the seams, even the ones closest to the spine. The edges just aren’t strong enough to withstand the weight of 5 stacked LPs when they shift even slightly. For the price and impossibility of exchanges because of the limited 5,000 release, that should’ve been constructed way better. But I’m extremely happy with the quality of the records themselves though. Beautiful bright red too. I’m on side B right now and still playing super smooth and clear with no pops. The no./5000 can be found on the back of the box in the lower left-hand corner which is pretty cool. I can’t wait for The Two Towers release! I had been waiting for this trilogy to be released on vinyl for a few years now but never dreamed it would be the extended editions so hats off to Rhino Records for that.
The packaging looks very nice but the durability leaves something to be desired. My "pages" came frayed and the bottom-right corner has already split. On the plus side, the vinyl itself sounds wonderful, no clicks or pops across my entire set and a very quiet pressing.
well protected for me : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWaQckORBxM&t=758s No problem
Wow boy they've really under estamated the demand for these. I feel bad for all the folks who couldn't grab it...but I'm sure in one form or another it's gonna be avaible again
There are still some available here at a good price:https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-lord-of-the-rings-the-fellowship-of-the-ring-the-complete-recordings/10679126?ean=0081227932473
