    Soarin' and Condor Flats loops

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone has a full, live recording of either of the following, which they'd be willing to share:

    - Soarin' Over California Queue Music
    - Condor Flats Area Music

    I'm looking to piece together a high-quality version of these loops from my CD collection, but I'd like to positively identify the source recordings and edited versions for the various selections first.

    The disneymusicloops site provides a great deal of information about these loops, and I believe that I can fill in a few of the gaps. For instance, "633 Squadron" and "The Guns of Navarone" are both featured on a London CD titled "The Guns of Navarone: Music from World War II films" as part of their Cinema Gala series.

    Since I haven't heard the area music loop in well over a year, I'm unable to determine whether or not these tracks are in fact the ones used in the loop.

    I hate to be so nit-picky about including the EXACT versions and edits, but I suppose that there are worse things to be obsessive about. :p

    Any assistance you may be able to provide is greatly appreciated. In return, I'd be more than happy to provide copies of the loops once they're completed.

    Hey Doug

    This is a project that I have been wanting to take on for a couple of years. Unfortunately, I haven't come by a live recording for reference. Please let me know if you find one!

    Re:Soarin' and Condor Flats loops

    I'll be glad to let you know, Jim.

    I have all but one of the CDs listed on the disneymusicloops site: American Jubilee. However, I have "Liberty Fanfare" on a number of other CDs. I may have to resort to using an alternate version for my finished product, as much as I hate to do it. :(

    As for the selections which I believe have been edited for the loops (PURE SPECULATION):

    - "The Blue Max Suite" (runs 16:29 on the CD, heard in both loops)

    - "Evening Tide" (not "Time" as listed on the site, runs 7:23 on the CD, heard in the Soarin' queue loop)

    I guess I should probably tell you that a high-quality copy of the actual Soarin' queue loop -- not a reconstruction -- is in circulation.

    You're killing me Steve! How widely in circulation (ie., where?)?

    Keep your eyes on the usual places. It'll turn up.

    Thanks for the update on those gaps! When I was looking around on amazon.com for the links, I remember having trouble finding a couple of the CDs listed under the Soarin' queue - and even then I try to be certain that they're the same version (as closely as possible considering that Disney often does their own edits).

    As I have only limited newsgroup access, I would appreciate it if someone who actually has this Soarin' loop would make it available on #Disney-Central, and/or contact me via AIM. Thanks very much!!

    Re:Soarin' and Condor Flats loops

    Here are the amazon.com links for the two missing CDs from the Soarin' Queue:

    [b]Goldsmith Conducts Goldsmith[/b] (reissue of Suites and Themes with an extra track)

    [b]Battle of the Atlantic Suite[/b] (Dave Roylance & Bob Galvin)

    Battle of the Atlantic is not available at amazon.com, but a quick search of ebay resulted in one hit.

    Also, amazon.com lists track 2 incorrectly as "Evening Table"; the correct title is "Evening Tide."

    Perfect! Thank you!!! :) The "Suites and Themes" one was one I was really stumped on. The fact that it's a reissue explains a lot. :)

    Of interest, the Blue Max soundtrack has been re-released on CD.

    The Blue Max: Original Sound Track Recording

    Moire music than the odler releases, very much a fantastic bit of Goldsmith work.

    [Start of merged topic 4524 "Soarin' Over California." —Admin]

    Couldn't find an answer for this buried in the forum archives. I'm building the queue loop for Soarin' at DCA using Thx99's info here, but I got a little bit stuck. Kristen's site says that the loop should only be 27:09, but if I use the entire Blue Max suite, it ends up being much longer than that. Did Disney edit the suite, or did they just use the Overture? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    It's definitely edited down. I just don't remember how exactly off the top of my head. I'll look into it and give you the details. As I recall, this loop didn't have any fancy edits like some of the other loops do so it should be pretty straightforward.

    I did this years ago. I seem to recall Airforce One is also edited, and there may be others as well.

    Air Force One isn't in the Soarin' CA loop. Perhaps you're thinking of Condor Flats?

    Okay, took a look/listen to my reconstruction and determined that the segment from "The Blue Max Suite" featured in the loop (from the Jerry Goldsmith: Suites and Themes CD) is from approximately 0:29 through 2:17. I imagine that these times should pretty well match up with track 1 of Silva America's [i][b]Goldsmith Conducts Goldsmith[/b][/i] re-release of the same material.

    Thanks! Do you know if any of the other tracks are edited, or if they're just straight drop-ins? I know a couple of other tracks are mixed together, but do you know where? If you don't have to time to track down the info, don't sweat it. I'm just anal about these things.
