Bo Hansson - Lord Of The Rings (Extended · Remixed Version) mp3 album
Music Inspired by Lord of the Rings is an instrumental progressive rock album by Swedish musician Bo Hansson. The album was originally issued in Sweden in late 1970, under the Swedish title of Sagan om ringen, and was subsequently re-released internationally as Music Inspired by Lord of the Rings in September 1972
Bo HANSSON (born 10 April 1943 in Gothenburg, Sweden, died 24 April 2010) played, in the mid 70’s, with Janne Carlsson (aka Loffe Carlsson) in duo Hansson & Karlsson. He also made several hours of recordings with Jimi Hendrix who much appreciated the humble Swedish organist. More: Famous for his 1970 concept album "Lord of the Rings" which came out decades before Hollywood ever made any noise about Tolkien's trilogy "Lord of the Rings" is a beautiful, timeless album of instrumental psychedelia worth hearing, even if it does sound rather 70ish production-wise. It doesn't feature any "fantasy/medieval" themes à la AYREON but captures the otherworldly, pastoral feel of Tolkien's work, like a Nordic album should. This extended verson was remixed in 1988 at Silence Studio and also includes tracks from the albums "The Magician's Hat" and "Attic Thoughts".

This extended version of Lord Of The Rings has excerpts from both Magician's Hat and Attic Thoughts. I guess the packaging and marketing of CD's allowed for throwing a few more songs on as so many artists are now doing with remasters these days. Sure it is great to get CD versions of Lord Of The Rings but I still strongly recommend getting the original albums unless that is impossible then get this to introduce you to the Bo Hansson sound.

Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy provide the inspiration for a series of strange, other-worldly tracks that transcend their source material. Hansson's keyboard playing is quite unlike the work of such rivals as Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman, less heavy and "gothic" and more oriented toward jazz. His guitar work as is flashy and aggressive as his keyboards ("The Black Riders/Flight to the Ford" is a great showcase for both), and the backing by sax, flute, and drums creates an overall rich sonic palette.
