The Fellowship of the Ring, disc 1, track 7:

Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe

[01:05-01:32] The Seduction of the Ring

[01:45-01:56] The Pity of Gollum (Sméagol's Theme)

[02:21-02:59] The History of the Ring
This section is highly reminiscent of the History of the Ring theme; although it never actually evolves into the actual theme itself, it seems likely that it is thematically linked to the theme.
[02:59-03:15] Mordor Descending Third

[03:23-04:00] The Shire (Pensive Setting)

[03:39-03:55] The Hobbit Outline Figure accompaniment

[03:49-04:06] The Road Goes Ever On
Performed by Ian Holm.
[04:29-05:13] The History of the Ring
This is a revised cue. The original album presented an alternate as the first part of 'The Shadow of the Past'. The alternate uses 'The Pity of Gollum' instead of 'The History of the Ring'.
[05:19-05:31] The Pity of Gollum (Sméagol's Theme)

[05:47-06:03] The Evil of the Ring (Sauron/Mordor)

[06:17-06:23] The Mordor Skip Beat accompaniment
Start time noted in Doug Adams' liner notes.
[06:22-06:31] The Ringwraiths

[06:37-07:02] The Mordor Skip Beat accompaniment

[08:01-08:06] Mordor Descending Third
Heard in short, truncated form as counterpoint to tense, dissonant tremolo strings.
[08:29-08:54] Drinking Song
Performed by Billy Boyd and a bunch of drunken hobbits :)
