Blurb: J.R.R. Tolkien reads and sings his The Lord of the Rings The Two Towers/The Return of the King on a vintage LP record.

Here’s a rare chance to hear Tolkien himself read from The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers and Return Of The King. Shown a tape recorder by a friend, whom Tolkien had visited to pick up a manuscript of The Lord of the Rings, the author decided to sit down and record himself. Delighted with the result, he liked the technology enough that he continued to record himself reading from his own work. Tolkien may not have desired to see his books turned into spectacles, but as we listen to him read, it’s hard to see how anyone could resist the temptation to put his magnificent descriptions on the big screen.
