Lord of Rings on Tape

I purchased The Lord of the Rings at Barnes and Noble (can you believe their site doesn’t even have this?) in Albuquerque, New Mexico on the way down to Phoenix last week and listened to all 13 cassettes on the trip there and back. This was the 13-tape BBC dramatized recording of the Tolkien masterpiece. And can you believe that this was abridged from the original master recording of 38 tapes!? There was a cast of at least 2 dozen, including Ian Holm as Frodo and an orchestra and sound department which added to the feeling and background of this classic tale. It was a great way to indoctrinate my wife to these books before I drag her to the movie 3-4 times.
