        The price is currently dropping with sales <100$. I am wondering if it's actually true sales? or fake sales to drop the price value?

          The comment below is just trying to hype this pressing up I assume...
          If the sound quality would be truly "phenomenal" as he saying, I am sure there would be many rapturous reviews from 1432 people who owns it :) Also, SHF is pretty much silent about this pressings.

            The comment below mine does bring up a good point and not many people have talked about the actual quality of this press.

            I’ve owned two sets of discs - one being pretty scuffed up with hairline scratches and the other set being brand new unplayed discs.

            The sound quality - in my opinion - is phenomenal. Very quiet press for a soundtrack that is very quiet at times. But the music is booming and dynamic just as it should be. Crisp & clear. I’ve played the brand new set I had front to back and yes there’s the occassional pop or crackle (it’s vinyl) but it was world’s better than my scuffed up set (which even then still sounded fine).

            The box is less sturdy compared to the rest of the box sets, so most copies of FOTR do suffer from box damage - mainly on the bottom from the weight of the discs. My TT & ROTK boxes seem to be a thicker material than FOTR.

            Overall, while I do think $1,000 is a tough pill to swallow I do believe this set is well worth it for any die hard LOTR fan. It sounds incredible, amazing quality, very sharp disc color, and the leather-bound box is nice as well.

            I don’t see Reprise reissuing these ever, apparently it was a pretty big hurdle for them to make in the first place - so if you get the chance to grab a set for a “decent” price I suggest you don’t sit on it.

            Lastly, there are a couple of LOTR releases from The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra that I believe are solid choices for anyone who can’t afford these box sets. The green variant “Music from the Lord of the Rings” (Vinyluxe) sounds much better than the standard clear variant, and the standard black copy of The Hobbit sounds great as well.

              Huh ? €1,999.99 ? Why ? Is it that good sounding ?
              Why all the comments are about repress ? No one mentioned quality, omg
              Imo it's not even that exciting to listen to the soundtracks without epic movie picture.
              That's said LOTR being among my all time favourite movies...

                Whoever decided to buy the latest listings of this album at $45 and $78, respectively, please let me know how your transaction goes. The seller, Gringo81, is new to Discogs, and has no reviews. That, combined with the ridiculously low sale prices, makes me skeptical.

                Oh, and the condition comments for his last two sold listings are completely identical, and somewhat about fishy.

                  I'm sure it's not going to ship, but has anyone received one of these from Merchbar? I placed an order a while back and still nothing.

                    If anyone ever likes to sell a version for a decent price let me know. Nevermind the box is damaged. I would like to have the sound.

                      What's with all the people crying for a re-release... do you even know what a limited edition is? O.o
                      Re-releasing it would greatly devalue it and be a slap in the face of all the current owners. If you can't afford something, don't buy it. Don't ask for a reprint because that would defeat the very purpose of limited editions. And before you ask, no, I don't own a copy of any of these (yet).
