Thread Name: Recordings of Tolkien Songs
Subject: RE: Recordings of Tolkien Songs
Forty years ago (1972) I sang the song cycle "The Road Goes Ever On" by Donald Swann/text by J.R.R. Tolkien) in the Carleton College Concert Hall, Northfield, MN, Feb. 6, 1972. It was recorded by the St. Olaf College radio station, played on air, and a reel-to-reel tape given to me. I probably listened to it once or twice and then put it away. Since I no longer have a working reel-to-reel recorder to play it on, I recently gave it to Bob (Deckman) Nelson to digitize. It's quite amazing to hear it again after all these years.
You can now listen to it on my website here.
I am thinking of producing a CD for this, but meed to get info on licensing (both the music and the graphic art). I've tried to find the copyright holders, with no success. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate that.
