    In the DLP Space Mountain Area Loop there is a track labeled Shooting Stars. Can anyone tell me about this piece? Is it from a particular film or is this an original piece? I know that Impressions of Space Mountain is original but I believe that the rest of the pieces were from films, (Krull, 1492, Rocketeer). Also the recording of this piece that's floating around sounds like it may even be a live recording. There is a lot of hiss at the beginning and even what sounds like hydraulic brakes (possibly of the train coming into the station). Any information is appreciated.

    It's one of two tracks (or possibly just part of the one track?) that was composed just for the SM queue area by Steve Bramson.

    DLP released an edited version of the track(s) on CD, with two parts clipped, so those missing parts were mixed into the file as live recordings for the Sound of Magic.

    Does anyone know for sure if it's two different tracks? They're playing right after each other, so it's hard to tell.. Plus, the ending of track one seems a bit strange, and track 2 (labled Shooting Stars) picks up some of the themes of track 1 (labled Space Mountain Impressions).

    There is a track in this loop called 'Always' that does not have
    an obvious source. Does anyone know where this one came from?
    It sounds like it's from a soundtrack, but it doesn't appear to
    be from Columbs, Krull or The Rocketeer.

    I forgot about that one. Is it possible that it's from the film "Always"?

    It's from a Steven Spielberg movie of the same name from 1989. The score was composed by John Williams (like that's a surprise, right?). It's a pretty nice score, and the film has to do with flight, love, and ghosts. It's almost like it was part of that "Amazing Stories" series that he did.

    Always does not look like it's from the movie with the same title (Soundtrack by John Williams) There are no tracks that even remotely resemble the name.

    This is just a guess, but could it be the Main Title track. I don't have the CD so I can't compare track times, but the DLP version runs 1:01. Not that a different track time precludes it being the same piece; perhaps a different edit was used.

    Yes, "Always" is from the Spielberg movie. As far as I remember, when the tracks on TSOM were originally put together, Mikey didn't have the actual soundtrack, only a re-recording of the theme that I sent him, but which is not the actual track heard in queue.

    I have no idea which of the soundtrack cues was used, though...

    The Sound of Magic track labeled "Always" is excerpted from track 18 on the Always soundtrack, called 'Dorinda Solo Flight'.

    Thanks. I was able to verify this. Also it looks like the only way to
    get the Always soundtrack CD is used now.

    It took me a while to find the track, and to dig through my old correspondence... but now I know for sure that the track on TSOM is what I sent him back then, i.e. not the real thing. If you compare the two tracks really side by side, you'll see/hear that.

    Actually used in Space Mountain is the complete "Dorinda Solo Flight" theme.

    John Williams conducted a re-recording with the Boston Pops of the Always "theme" ('The Spielberg/Williams Collaboration on Sony Classical). Could this be the version used at DLP? I own this cd, but I would need to hear a recording of the DLP version to make the comparison.

    No, that's the version that was excerpted on The Sound of Magic. I have that CD too... :) Space Mountain uses the original (and complete) "Dorinda Solo Flight" track from the soundtrack album.

    Ah, sorry, I misunderstood. Thanks for the clarification, David!

    Just when you thought this topic was dead. In this loop, there are some tracks that are from (a film I assume) called Columbus? I can't find any info on this film. Is that really the title? Who wrote the music?
