The Lord of the Rings Soundtrack Trilogy on Vinyl

April - Sept saw the release of the complete recordings on limited edition numbered vinyl. These sets (one for each film) was the entire soundtrack. That campaign is over.

This release, is the 70-80 minute ‘basic’ versions of all 3 films in one set, and doesn’t look to be limited. It looks like it’ll be 2 LPs per movie (totaling 6 for the entire set). You know - the version that comes out close to when the movies were release din cinemas. The ones most people are familiar with. While not the complete recordings, this is great for those who wish to own this music on vinyl, and have missed the complete recordings; due to them being limited and numbered.

On Nov. 30, in a non-limited set, all three soundtracks (the 'basic' 70-80 minute ones) are getting released in a 6LP boxed set. This should work out to 2 LPs per film.

The set can currently be bought from here : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J3H7F8B/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=hennethannunr-20&linkId=712f359c49c7ea220ac682c06eb7ca6a&language=en_US .

In one of my posts about The Lord of the Rings vinyl releases, I suggested this as a possible release, and they listened! Or coincidence. I wonder what will be included, by way of booklets, etc inside the package? Will it feature some of the content that appeared in the collector's editions of the original soundtracks? And hey, will they do The Hobbit next....? Either way, it's great that this set will exist - and in a non-limited edition.
