40 Days of Enough ... Day 27 - Leonard Rosenman's soundtrack to "The Lord of the Rings"
I love Leonard Rosenman's soundtrack to "The Lord of the Rings". It is deeply emotive and rather dissonant in places. I can trace back my love of orchestral and 'out there' music to this album.
I had it as a teenager on vinyl. Sadly I can't find said copy nowadays ... but back in the late 80s it was a treasured piece of music from an equally treasured film.
I bought it on CD with Christmas money after I decided to cancel my Rdio subscription. It was in my Rdio collection and one of about a half-dozen albums that I genuinely missed. I don't think I paid more than a few pounds for it on Amazon ... it was from a charity seller, if my memory holds true.
I still want it on vinyl but can wait.
