'The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring' Soundtrack Just Got a Huge Vinyl Release

lotr-vinyl-soundtrack

Composer Howard Shore's work on The Lord of the Rings soundtrack is iconic. It's consistently rated among the best soundtracks ever made, and is often compared to John Williams' work on Star Wars and Schindler's List in terms of the impact the music had on the films. Also like Williams, Shore's music for LOTR is powerful enough and memorable enough to actually transcend the movies themselves.

That having been said, if you are a big fan of vinyl, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - The Complete Recordings is a must-have for your collection. The set contains 5 LPs on 180-gram red vinyl, and appears to contain quite a bit of bonus items within the gorgeous packaging. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon right now with shipping slated for April 6th. The set covered by Amazon's pre-order price guarantee, so you'll get any price drops that occur between the time that you order and the time that is ships - and there's a pretty good chance that some sort of discount will happen during the pre-order period.
