Thread Name: Recordings of Tolkien Songs
Subject: RE: Recordings of Tolkien Songs
I have somewhere a tape of that Swan travesty... and also a copy of JRR himself singing (And I use the term VERY loosely) the elvish poem Namarie...

Seeing as the Donald Swan album was one of the projects that JRR put his stamp of approval on, my opinion is that JRR knew little to nothing about music...

Blind Guardian does a bunch of music inspired by Tolkien...
