Complete Recordings? Can't Post

I know this has been asked before, but do you think that the FOTR and the TTT complete recordings will ever be put on iTunes? I've heard that they may go into print again, but I'm wondering if they will ever be put out on iTunes?

A reissue would be nice [In reply to] Can't Post

Have you seen the price of those things on amazon? Alas for the day I had them in my hands and didn't buy them, heh.

I know, it's crazy. [In reply to] Can't Post

They have gone up to hundreds and hundreds of dollars!


Hopefully they will be more available and less pricey in the future.

Would love a reissue [In reply to] Can't Post

I too would love a reissue. I was a bit late to the game (I read the books summer 2012 and saw the films after finishing each), so I missed out on the amazing Complete Recordings, and I've always been bummed about that. Unsure

We are lucky that we have the ROTK on iTunes for the Complete Recordings, but I am keeping my fingers cross for the other two to eventually be rereleased.

Helpful Thread [In reply to] Can't Post

There is a thread about this from Film Score Monthly that has become active again recently. The thread begins in 2013 but the last few pages are within the last few weeks. They offer some insight into the logistics for re-issuing this, as well as some questions about changing the packaging to make a re-issue less cost prohibitive. I am hoping for a re-issue, even though I grabbed all 3 as they were originally released, I just feel so bad that these amazing collections aren't in as many desirous hands as they could be.

Thanks for the link! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm lucky that ROTK's music is on itunes, because I wouldn't be able to afford the other music. (Sigh) well, maybe one day the music will all be available again, but I am grateful enough for the ROTK!

Grateful For What's Available [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, I am glad at least that ROTK is available. Some of the best unreleased music is from that album, such as "For Frodo" and the music during Theoden's rallying speech in "The Battle of Pelennor Fields." The latter is what I was most looking forward to back when the original album was released and I was so disappointed when it wasn't there.

Of course, FOTR and TTT have some great unreleased music as well, beginning with the actual Prologue music and the Hobbit music from the extended edition. Here's hoping for a reissue some day. Why on earth they don't at least make them all available digitally is just beyond me.

I love the music during Theoden's speech! [In reply to] Can't Post

I have listened to FOTR and TTT but I don't own any of the music, so I am hoping for something! I am sure it will eventually happen, as money could be made from them!


I do own the original albums and love them, but sometimes you would just like a little bit more!Wink

Lighting of the Beacons [In reply to] Can't Post

In another thread many people said "Lighting of the Beacons" was one of their favorite musical pieces, and while that music is on the original album, what is not included is the few minutes AFTER the final beacon is lit. I love the militaristic Rohan theme, and then how it ends with a building of the Nature's Reclamation leitmotif, which connects it even more to Battle of Pelennor Fields. Both occurrences of Nature's Reclamation are only available on the complete recordings.

I defiantly remember hearing that. [In reply to] Can't Post

I love Nature Reclamation's theme, and it was so awesome in ROTK, and I am glad that the ROTK complete recordings is available so we can experience that theme in all it's glory in music.


I would love the other complete recordings because of all the other musical themes, such as the Nazgul's themes and all the other Rohan themes.

There is..... [In reply to] Can't Post

.....A video on Youtube with all ~10 hours of the score. Searching "The Lord of the Rings: Complete Score" will find you the video of the same name. It isn't iTunes, but it's really all we've got other than the actual CR discs


It was a foggy day in London, and the fog was heavy and dark. Animate London, with smarting eyes and irritated lungs, was blinking, wheezing, and choking; inanimate London was a sooty spectre, divided in purpose between being visible and invisible, and so being wholly neither. - Our Mutual Friend, Charles Dickens.

It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen. - The Silmarillion, J. R. R. Tolkien

I know, and I'm thankful that we at least have that. [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the music, and I am glad that we at least can listen to it somewhere.
