[11:25 a.m.] And here we go...
[12:30 p.m.] Finding a good number of ALTs from Rohan at Dunharrow. Much colder in spots. Wonder in the Army of the Dead was supposed to cast more a pall over things originally.
[1:08 p.m.] Going through the orchestral overdubs from Billy Boyd's song.
[2:42 p.m.] Back from lunch. Just catalogued CD 100!
[3:43 p.m.] Rocking Into the West remix... No I'm not kidding!
[5:46 p.m.] Sorry for the spotty reporting. Exceedingly busy day! Will be back for a wrap-up in the evening.
[10:21 p.m.] Back in the hotel!
It's been a long day. I'll try to give you a very brief overview, but I'm going to have to hit the bed pretty quickly. I think I'm getting very, very close to hitting the end of The Return of the King, which is at once thrilling and disappointing. I'm thrilled to think that I've finally wrapped my ears around this enormous archive of material, but disappointed that the discovery period is close to its end. I'd love to find a few more gems tomorrow, so I'm going in optimistically. Today I found a good number of ROTK alternates... and even one FOTR bit that had been filed out of order and left undiscovered when I was focusing on that film. But this trip isn't solely about collecting music, so there have been exciting bits on other fronts. More on that later. I'm well past 100 CDs this point, though it's important to remember that many of these CDs include only a single bit of notably alternate material. Still... it's an enormous archive, and I can't wait to share it with everyone soon.
And, as I say, it's not yet done. Be here tomorrow as I get to the end of the CDs, and talk a bit about the new avenue the research has begun to explore.
Bedtime now. See you soon!
