November 7, 2006 see here: http://www.howardshore.com/news/pres.../lotr-ttt.html at this rate, ROTK, the final release will be nov/dec 2007 sometime. hopefully sooner... but i doubt it =). i hope it's not as soft as it was on FOTR release. it's awesome to have major soundtrack releases on a high-res format. do you think it'd've been more succesful if it was SACD hybrids? or... how about DVD-Audio MLP on 1 DVD as they do now AND SACD 5.1 hybrid on the 3 discs =). PS do SACD hybrids store more length than regular redbook?
