Lord of the Rings on tape

We've been re-arranging the downstairs library today and that has included throwing some stuff out. Included in this is a boxed set of the BBC Radio adaptation of The Lord of the Rings on audio cassette (professional but abridged) as well as the Taruithorn adaptation of The Lord of the Rings, also on audio cassette (amateurish but complete). Would anyone like either? Probably wouldn't cost that much to post. Free to a good home. Oh, and a paperback copy of 'City of the Chasch' by Jack Vance (first in the 'Planet of Adventure' series), which I stupidly bought two of recently.

Tell me you have both those LotR adaptations safe and to hand on other media! Or I will be scandalised...

Foradan ripped the Taruithorn version to mp3 CD a few years back, so I now have that in easily back-upable form.

As for the abridged BBC version, no. But even if I did own it in a format I could actually play (I'm not sure I even own a cassette player anymore), I can't imagine listening to it. If I wanted abridged, I'd just watch the films. I'd much rather listen to the complete version, even if the acting and production values aren't as good.

Well OK then. I know what you mean about abridged versions and I've enjoyed having the complete reading on mp3, but I still think the BBC radio version is pretty darn good.

What are you implying about Taruithorn acting and production values?? :-)

I think we have Taruithorn on both tape and CD. We used to have the BBC on both, but sold the tapes.

We also have the Rob Inglis unabridged reading on CD. That's pretty good.

Have you got the Christopher Lee 'Children of Hurin'? That's very good.

No, but I might give it a go.
