Numbered, Limited Edition 180g Blue Vinyl 5LP Collector's Box Set!
Complete Grammy Award-Winning Score - First Time On Vinyl!


THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS – THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS on vinyl for the first time as a 5-LP boxed set. Housed in a collector’s box with a blue leather-style spine, the collection is limited to 8,000 individually numbered copies on blue vinyl.

An epic film score receives epic treatment with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - The Complete Recordings on this 180g Blue Vinyl 5LP Set.

The Lord of the Rings is one of most successful trilogies in film history earning 17 Academy Awards® including three for its music. Beyond critical acclaim, the music from the films also enjoyed wide commercial success, collectively selling 7 million copies. Directed by Peter Jackson,The Lord of the Rings films are based on the popular J.R.R. Tolkien novel of the same name.

The music for all three films was composed, orchestrated and conducted by Howard Shore. The music he wrote for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers was performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with contributions from the choirs: the London Voices and the London Oratory School Schola boy's choir. The album was certified gold in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada and won the Grammy Award ® for Best Score Soundtrack Album. The set comes with extensive liner notes from author Doug Adams, who analyzes many of the themes and motifs used throughout the score.

Breathtaking and majestic the score composed by Howard Shore is an essential experience for fans of any of The Lord of the Rings films.

"There's probably never been as ambitious a film score as Howard Shore's 10-hour epic for the 'Lord of the Rings' series... the music is rich and complex, drawing on a vast range of styles and exotic instruments to evoke J.R.R. Tolkien's world of elves, hobbits and warlocks. But it's more than just background music: Shore uses an elaborate leitmotif technique (where musical themes are associated with specific characters or ideas, and are developed across the entire series) to hold the sprawling tale together. Lush, beautiful and full of intriguing surprises, it's no wonder that it's become one of the most popular film scores ever written." - Stephen Brookes, Washington Post, May 2008
