"The Fellowship of the Ring" Soundtrack Debuts on Vinyl LP & More...


Now this is unexpected and all-together welcomed!!

The Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack will be debuting on vinyl LP for the first time ever, rightfully so, in it's Complete Recordings!

The set will be released on March 30.

It can presently be pre-ordered via Amazon right here: https://www.amazon.com/Lord-Rings-Fellowship-Complete-Recordings/dp/B079PDFGZK/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1518573762&sr=1-2&keywords=lord+of+the+rings .

As you can see in both the picture and the the description, it'll be 5 discs (can they be called 'discs?').

I'm greatly excited for this myself, however, I'm a tad puzzled as to why The Two Towers or The Return of the King aren't out as well - either in a trilogy set, or on their own if cost, packaging etc would be an issue for that much vinyl and what not. Or, possibly, The Hobbit as well.

But it's all good! The Lord of the Rings film music is finally coming to vinyl! I got the Complete Recordings on CD when they initially came out, so for the time being, I'm good! I'll have my eye fixed on the vinyl sets once The Return of the King debuts on vinyl and I can get the entire trilogy. That's just me though. I am definitely beyond delighted that these amazing soundtracks are coming to vinyl LP in their true form. Since I get my favourite music of all time on vinyl, I'll be asking for this set for both my Birthday AND for Christmas. Should I not recieve it for either of those occasions, I'll wait until The Return of the King is out, and hope stock is still good for The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers at that point.

I also feel that multiple editions packages could have also been possible, as well. For instance, there could have been super-set that featured the vinyl LPs AND the CDs with a blu-ray audio disc (and maybe an audio DVD?) all in one set, for those interested. 

But wait....there's more....

The CD set of The Fellowship of the Ring (in its complete recordings format) will also be RE-ISSUED on CD with a blu-ray audio disc (which sounds weird to me, but there you have it) that same day! You can pre-order that set here: https://www.amazon.com/Lord-Rings-Fellowship-Complete-Recordings/dp/B079PTDW74/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518619892&sr=8-1&keywords=B079PTDW74 . One would also think that The Fellowship of the Ring (Complete Recordings) would also be available on iTunes and / or Google Play, as well. I mention that because I feel, if you want physical music, go for vinyl. If you want digital music, go for iTunes / Google Play (plus, you won't have to worry about stock running low *IF* this release also goes to iTunes / Google Play, that is)
