LP (33 1/3)

Here's something a little unusual!

A Caedmon produced record from 1975 in which J.R.R. Tolkien reads and sings his The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers/The Return of the King.

This record is based on a tape recording that Tolkien made while staying in Malvern, Worcestershire in August 1952.  He had been depressed because The Lord of the Rings, which had taken him 14 years to write, had just been rejected by the publishers.  His host, George Sayer produced a tape recorder on an evening to entertain Tolkien.  It was during this time that Tolkien recorded what you are bidding on now; a selection of The Lord of the Rings poems, passages and lines from the books.  The most amazing recording has to be the passage of Elvish that is sung in plain chant.

The record looks to be be in good condition for its age but am unable to play it as I do not own a working record player!  There doesn't appear to be any deep scratches.

Any questions, please ask.

Happy bidding!
