Yo Ho - What's This Version From?

I'm posting a link to a short clip of a vocal version of Yo-Ho, a pirate's life for me.
I have this from my video of the Dumbo ride in DLRP from June 1992 (6 weeks after the park opened). At this time, the loop for the ride consisted of general Disney music rather than the circus music used now. It's not imagination (regardless of how bizzare it seems).
I have no idea how long they used this loop before the "proper" loop was used, only that on that day, this was playing.
I think, within the next year, the correct loop was in use.
This loop may have been used for days/weeks/months - I have no way of knowing - but finding where this version comes from may help to find what loop was playing and whether it was a borrowed one from elsewhere etc.
There's also a few seconds of the following track. If anyone can ID that it would be great help.
Thanks.

It's the english version of Pirates from Feel the Magic. The english version was released in 1995 and the french verison C'est Magique was released in 1992.(I'm not calling into question your date, I'm just saying that's when the english cd was released. They most certainly record both versions at the same time and had them available). The song after is the next track from the cd, Discoveryland, but the french version. So maybe the loop alternated french and english tracks from it?



/and for those familiar with tokyo's, no it's not tokyo's feel the magic

Brilliant!
Yes, the date is correct as it was the day after my wife's birthday (nice way to celebrate - first visit to the new park) plus the date is on the video - plus most of the video has date stamps on it (not this particular clip - I switched it off for this one but it's on most)and it's also on it's own tape from the camera (I keep them rather than erase and reuse.)It was filmed on 14th June 1992.
Just in case anyone thinks it was a bleed through and wishes to see the actual video clip it's here.

I'm looking for this stuff because the playlist for Dumbo needs details of this very early loop which played at the opening of the ride back in 1992.
By 1995, the standard circus lop was playing so you must be correct that the English version was recorded at the same time. That does make sense - French version to coincide with the park opening followed a couple of years later by the release of an English version as the number of Brits visiting increased.
Relying on memory, I think the loop was a mixture of French and English.
I fully intended to record the music on my next visit but it had changed by then.
Thanks for helping :eek:
