HOWARD SHORE THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING – THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS Limited Numbered Green Vinyl 6LP Box Set

Overview:
The Lord of the Rings trilogy remains one of most successful films in cinematic history. Based on the popular J.R.R. Tolkien novel of the same name, The Lord of the Rings was directed by Peter Jackson with a score composed by Howard Shore and earned a total of 17 Academy Awards®. Three of those awards were for the film’s music which enjoyed wide commercial success and collectively has sold seven million copies.

To help celebrate International Tolkien Week (September 14-22) and International Hobbit Day (September 22), the third and final soundtrack from the Trilogy will be released on September 21st. The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King: The Complete Recordings will be released on vinyl for the first time as a 6-LP boxed set. Housed in a collector’s box with a green leather-style spine, the collection is limited to 8,000 individually numbered copies on green vinyl. The soundtrack will also be available as a 4-CD set, plus 1 Blu-ray audio disc containing the entire sore in high-resolution 5.1 surround sound, a reactivation of the 2007 box set featuring the entire score from the extended versions of the film. Both versions come with extensive liner notes from author Doug Adams, who analyzes many of the themes and motifs used throughout the score.
