Sagan Om Ringen (LP, Album).
Music Inspired by Lord of the Rings is an instrumental progressive rock album by Swedish musician Bo Hansson. The album was originally issued in Sweden in late 1970, under the Swedish title of Sagan om ringen, and was subsequently re-released internationally as Music Inspired by Lord of the Rings in September 1972
The album was originally released in Sweden on the Silence label as "Sagan Om Ringen" and also became the first album ever released on that label (what a great way to kick off the label, by the way). In 1972, Charisma Records got a hold of it and released it under the much more familiar English title and artwork (it's also interesting to know the original Swedish album had all the song titles in Swedish, while the more familar version off Charisma was all in English, but, of course it doesn't really matter, since this is all instrumental). Regardless how one might feel of BO HANSSON's "Lord of the Rings", especially when it compares to the more typical Hollywood-type of score for the Peter Jackson films, I still always think HANSSON's "Lord of the Rings" is a nice album to have, although the second half does run a bit out of steam.

Thursday, March 26, 2015. Bo Hansson - 1970 - Sagan om Ringen. Bo Hansson 1970 Sagan om Ringen. Bo Hansson is an acclaimed Swedish progressive rock t deserving of more attention than he received. Here in the States he couldn't get arrested which is our loss but this album did quite well in other parts of the world. Hansson plays all of the keyboards and guitars on his debut homage to Tolkien, getting help only on the drums, saxophone and flute. Lord of the Rings" is a largely quiet and contemplative album with a sound that is dreamy, spacey, often melodic. Some sections do wake up with energetic if not outwardly rocking playing.
