    Musical Notes from My Trip to WDW

    X-S Tech: Thanks. Anything you can find would be very much appreciated. I am guessing that "The Journey" is from "The Magnificent Seven" and "Dodge City Main Title" is from the Errol Flynn movie, but it would be nice to confirm this.

    Musical Notes from My Trip to WDW

    X-S Tech: This is a beautiful listing that certainly looks more accurate than any I've seen before. I'm curious where this comes from and whether you have any more information. I haven't seen "The Journey" listed before. Do you know what that is from? Thanks for any help!

    New WDW Tomorrowland BGM

    Dr Know, I think you got me with the ricochet. I realize you were acknowledging my point but I think you actually made your own case stronger. I too am a big fan of film music and I become quite upset with directors who think they are music dj's, shoveling in current hits as a soundtrack...

    Chernabog is Greeting You!

    I'm sure Chernabog can answer this question for you, but I did want to add this: There must have been a major improvement in WinMX in the latest version (3.31). After I installed it and began using it, I began to think the WinMX network was specifically for Disney enthusiasts -- everything is...

    New WDW Tomorrowland BGM

    This is an interesting discussion. I personally am a big fan of needle-drop. I admit that the commissioned pieces are what define Disney but the creative use of existing works is always a pleasure to hear. DCA is a perfect example. Disney could have commissioned Randy Edelman to compose a...

    more notes on the original WDW FL bgm

    Well that is good news! So there is a slight possibility that someone may have recorded that. Now I have something to search for. Thanks!

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    DC-88 SPACELINER, Thanks for the info. I see now that I should have made a search of the archives. This certainly seems to be a lost cause. I don't think many people were walking around Disneyland with recording equipment in the 60's and 70's. The PeopleMover cuts I have are from much...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    DC-88 Spaceliner, The fact that these were rentals will make finding these a little difficult. I checked my library of PeopleMover loops and it's all Buddy Baker. If you know of any sources for sale or trade please let me know. I'm putting together a loop comprising the current one and the...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    DavidG, Somehow I missed your original post but I suspect you are correct about "City Slickers" since there is also the discrepancy on the additional three tracks that people have heard (wasn't it Groucho Marx who asked "who are you going to believe me or your own eyes (ears)?") But the list...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    DC-88 SPACELINER, I do remember that now! That's why the new track caught my attention. But I didn't realize until you mentioned it that the previous track included the Mighty Dog music! That is so great . . . now I've got to find that too. Were these Capital media tapes released...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    The Disneyland Paris stuff sure does complicate things. It certainly seems that most of the Frontierland recordings available on-line come from the Paris park. I thought that the hoof beat version might be ripped from the movie itself. Checking this will give me an excuse to watch the movie...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    The more I dig into this the more interesting it becomes. What was selected and where they came from continue to fascinate me. Although there is a version of "How the West Was Won" on Kunzel, they opted to use the Broughton version from the "Wild Wild West" CD. Also the "Big Valley" and "Have...

    The Function of Music

    I recently returned from three nights at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park and one thing that struck me was how well the Wilderness Lodge compares to the real thing: the public rooms are magnificent and the guest rooms are small and expensive. But the one major difference inside...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    Most of the large loops that are circulating as Frontierland BGM are of the "more ambient" variety. Apparently they are from the Big Thunder Barbecue loop that begins with "Streets of Laredo" and ends with "The Old Chisum Trail". I don't remember hearing this but that's probably because it...

    Frontierland Shooting Gallery BGM

    Thanks for checking on this; it is a puzzle. This loop really does push the limits. When I hear the vocal for "Pecos Bill" I'm reminded of the Disney cartoon and when I hear "Davy Crockett" I begin to sing along. But when I hear Frankie Laine singing that old west ballad "Blazing Saddles", I...
