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.

Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy provide the inspiration for a series of strange, other-worldly tracks that transcend their source material. Hansson's keyboard playing is quite unlike the work of such rivals as Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman, less heavy and "gothic" and more oriented toward jazz. His guitar work as is flashy and aggressive as his keyboards ("The Black Riders/Flight to the Ford" is a great showcase for both), and the backing by sax, flute, and drums creates an overall rich sonic palette.

The Nordic influence is palpable and adds to the feel of this album. Tolkiens Lord of the Rings was the muse of fantasists and students at this time and an inspiration to Hansson as well. I believe he captures the imagination of Tolkien in music brilliantly. His later work like Magicians Hat follows a similar path. This album allows you to wander in your imaginations, to those far off lands and become part of the Tolkien experience. 2 people found this helpful.

The album peaked at on the UK Album Chart and became Bo’s only UK Top 40 album. swedish jazz (i reckon) musician bo hansson made this stunningly atmospheric conceptual record based on the lord of the rings-books in the early 70’s. and by bog is it ever so fitting to listen to whilst painting.
