Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of most successful 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. Rhino/Warner Bros. returns to Middle-earth once again with the third and final soundtrack from the trilogy, The Return of the King: The Complete Recordings, available on vinyl for the first time as a 180g 6LP box set. Housed in a collector's box with a green leather-style spine, the collection is limited to 8,000 individually numbered copies on colored vinyl. It also comes with extensive liner notes from author Doug Adams, who analyzes many of the themes and motifs used throughout the score.

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 Return of the King was performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with contributions from the choirs: The London Voices and The London Oratory School Schola Boys Choir. The album was certified gold in the U.S. and the U.K. and won two Academy Awards for Best Original Score and for Best Original Song with "Into the West" performed by Annie Lennox; and two Grammy Awards for Best Score Soundtrack Album and Song Written for a Motion Picture.

"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

The album was certified gold in the U.S. and the U.K. and won two Academy Awards® for Best Original Score and for Best Original Song with “Into the West” performed by Annie Lennox; two Golden Globe Awards® for Best Original Score and Song; and two Grammy Awards® for Best Score Soundtrack Album and Song Written for a Motion Picture.
