    Hi all!

    I've recently acquired the interior loop for The Land. I found a list of the songs on a website, and had my mom play "Name that Tune" to compare the loop with the list. I noticed a bunch of songs missing, and two that weren't on the list and didn't even fit with the Sun/Moon theme. Here's the songs that are in my loop (in no order):

    Sunrise, Sunset
    Old Devil Moon
    Polka Dots And Moonbeams
    Paper Moon
    Moonlight Serenade
    Moonlight Becomes You
    Moon River
    You Are My Sunshine
    You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
    How High The Moon
    Sunny Side Of The Street
    Carolina Moon
    Wait Till The Sunshines Nellie
    Moonlight Bay
    Blue Moon

    Clementine and Jimmy Cracked Corn were the two extras.

    I know there are missing songs - because I've heard John Denver's Sunshine on My Shoulder and there are 6 more on the list that I didn't hear.

    Does anyone know if there's a more complete loop that may be out there? I love this loop and really wanted to have it in full.

    Thanks so much!
    Jessica

    The loop you have is the one circulating in many places.

    I believe it's not the actual loop. Instead, a collector found the songs on the list and threw them all together. I haven't seen an accurate loop anywhere yet...

    Clementine and Jimmy Cracked Corn belong in the Listen to the Land area music. :)

    I can confirm Grizzly's statement: that loop is a monumental fake. All of that music was poorly and clumsily assembled from various commercial recordings by someone who was eager to get himself a few ill-gotten trades. The real "The Land" interior BGM was recorded expressly for WDI and has yet to leak out.

    Aw shucks! Well thanks for your help - I figured there was something up when I heard Darlin' Clementine! :) It's a shame that this music has yet to really surface - it's one of my favorite loops. Oh well, I'll keep hoping.

    On another note (while I have the experts here!) --
    I was listening to my Innoventions BGM loop and I listened to the whole 50-minute thing - and never once heard Papillion played (my favorite song). There were strains of Listen to the Land, Golden Dreams, and New Horizons - which I don't believe I've ever heard. Do I have another fakey on my hands? Or is this an alternate loop I've yet to hear.

    Thanks so much for your continual help! I appreciate it greatly!!

    The 50-minute "Innoventions Plaza" BGM that's circulating is a hybrid of the originally submitted loop and an unrelated recording of "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" (in place of an original composition titled "Clockworks") which was assembled for an event on the west coast. The original, unedited version of this loop is not circulating and is currently played only in the Mouse Gear shop area.

    The actual loop used in Innoventions Plaza runs 19-1/2 minutes. It includes the David Arkenstone recording "Papillon" which was the original inspiration for the original music recorded for the area. This shorter loop (which contains several elements not present in the longer version) was produced under protest by the composer responsible for the bulk of this music, Russell Brower. You may find a lower-fidelity recording of this version of the loop in circulation.

    Steve - you continue to amaze me! Thank you for the explanation - it's all becoming clear now! I sure wish I had the real loop though - it's my mom's favorite loop (she'll actually sit down and listen to it when Papillon comes on). I found David Arkenstone's CD with Papillon and Wake of the Wind on it, so it looks like I have half of the loop. :) I'll have to look around for that lower quality version and maybe I can recreate it from the pieces I have.

    Of all the Disney music currently out there - why do my two favorite loops have to be fakes? ;) Oh well - at least I have the real Ellen's Energy Adventure and Wonders of Life loops. At least, I hope I do... ::)

    Thanks again!

    Only "Papillon" from that CD has ever been used at the parks...

    I'll be posting the 19:30 loop to Usenet this evening, so that should *help* you get a copy... if you need more assistance, just come a-knockin' :)

    Thanks Steve! I think I've found a copy - it runs 19:47 and sounds legit to me (at least it has Papillon in it this time!).

    Hi Steve,

    Your post was a mono track; there also exists a stereo version (19:47). Are they identical?

    Regards,
    Brett.

    If someone has re-encoded the thing as stereo, then that's their business. The recording itself is mono -- and in fact, despite how nice and clean it sounds, it was recorded via the induction method -- aka the telephone pickup.

    Aside: for those who have *no* idea what I'm talking about, this is a popular method to get some sneaky recordings done live at the parks by means of a simple little $2 device you used to be able to find at your local Radio Shack...

    In any event, aside from the needledrop "Papillon" track, the Innoventions Plaza music is not generally circulating in true stereo in the fan community (aside from portions of the longer mix that were hived up for potential sale on WDW Forever - which manages to miss most of the key bits that are incorporated into the 19:45 loop).
