“(Theme from) The Lord Of The Rings” by Aragorn Ballroom Orchestra – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Aragorn Ballroom Orchestra is a project from producers Hank Crosby and Phil Jones. This disco-fied version from Leonard Rosenman’s movie score was released during a period of disco music where movie scores were being recreated in a disco arrangement thanks to work by Barry White and Meco. The arrangement here is mastered by Herb Jimmerson who produced his own group Paradise Express along with his wife Vi Ann on vocals. The 12” version provided a drum version of this piece which is titled “Helm’s Deep” and plays out in this video mix version as the overall sound for the Viking dance celebration. The mix on this disco single was done by San Francisco’s Marty Blechman and John Hedges.
The visuals are provided by the 1961action film “Erik the Conqueror” starring Giorgio Ardissdon and Cameron Mitchell. This concept was introduced by Jussi Kantonen who this Disco Video Mix is dedicated to.
The film was directed by Mario Bava
