1952 tape recording refers to an audio recording by George Sayer of J.R.R Tolkien in late August 1952.

Tolkien was visiting his friends (George Sayer and his wife) when the recording of Tolkien singing and reading excerpts from The Hobbit and the then unpublished manuscript of The Lord of the Rings was performed. The recording includes the poem "The Mirror of Galadriel", originally meant for inclusion in Book Two of The Fellowship of the Ring.
