ROCK: Folk Rock, ROCK: Acoustic
The music of Alan Horvath and the story of the Lord of the Rings have been synonymous in some circles for 3 decades. Alan's first songs about the trilogy were penned in 1972, but it wasn't until 1979 that Alan (then known as Alan Post) pursued the idea of an entire album of songs based on the story.
In 1980, Fantasy Films took a strong interest in Horvath's work, as did the Tolkien Foundation in England. Common Ground Music Group (Nashville, TN) signed Horvath to an exclusive recording and publishing contract that year ... an album project was recorded ... a 45 r.p.m. record was released and received moderate airplay and regional notoriety, especially in the Northeastern US.
In 1981, producer Scott Turner took Horvath's nine-song project with him on a trip to visit with David Bowie at his castle, in France. They listened to the project together, and Bowie expressed a strong interest in collaborating with Horvath.
In early 2001, New Line Cinema (producers of the 2001, 2002 and 2003 releases of The Lord of the Rings movie) reviewed Alan's material and contacted him with great enthusiasm. Meetings were conducted ... contracts were discussed ... but, eventually, the reality presented by Howard Shore for the movie itself, prevailed : no songs of this nature were to be employed; Howard Shore was creating an opera.
In 2004 "The Ballad of Tom Bombadil" was licensed for use in a feature-length film documentary titled "Ringers: Lord of the Fans" -- this film is scheduled for release in 2005. For more info, visit https://www.tradebit.com
