The Aragorn Ballroom Orcestra’s Theme from The Lord of the Rings (1978)

LOTR LP 1978

You’ve heard of space disco, but… epic fantasy disco? Compare the funky version to Leonard Rosenman’s original score below.

Note the play on words in the “artist” name: Aragorn Ballroom, as opposed to Aragon Ballroom, a famous Chicago venue; and, in lieu of `orchestra’, we have ‘orc-estra’.

    “BOOGIE… BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION.” Oh man. Makes me smile and cringe at the same time.

    Wow. I have both the Bakshi and Bo Hansen albums on my iPod. I just may need to dig this one up to make a trilogy trilogy!
