Does anyone know where I can find a copy of Monorail Theme as composed by Buddy Baker for Disney? It appears not to be on any available Disney music cd
but may have seen the light of day on some vinyl form in the '60s. Thank you.

Are you by any chance referring to The Monorail Song (which never played on the monorail)?

The original version (heard on WWofDisney occasionally) was available through the Disneyland Forever kiosks and you can occasionally find it on eBay when someone sells one of those discs.

There was also a Space Mountain Concourse version (which, I think, was never played at Space Mountain but rather in the Space Mountain toilets) which wasn't released commercially, but has circulated for a couple years on the internet.

Wasn't the Space Mountain Concourse version released on DL Forever also? I thought all of the non Epcot tunes were. It did in fact play on the upper level of the Space Mountain Concourse, as well as in the lower level spill area. Nowadays though it's confined to the restrooms. Man those are the best scored bathrooms in the park.

Unless you prefer a good Polka in which case the Village Haus is your place.
 
The "MONORAIL SONG"........was only used on TV for a monorail theme..but was the original PEOPLEMOVER on board music from 1967-1976 (untill the 8 Capital Records Media music tracks replaced it) The real name is called "Nation on Wheels"

And yes the, 1990's re-orchestrated version was also available on the DL FOREVER system.

Another note: (and I know I've said this before) but the DL "monorail song" was mixed with new BGM tracks to be used with the WDW 1975 WEDWAY and played with their original PeopleMover music!!

I'm sure that I already know the answer to this, but...

Has the WDW WEDWAY PeopleMover music EVER seen the light of day on any format? Official or otherwise? This is my Holy Grail of Disney theme park music! It kicks the daylights out of the DL PeopleMover music. ;D
 
with the exception of the "Monorail Song", both the Disneyland PeopleMover and the WDW WEDWAY Peoplemover music was from the same sources and were done by the same musicians.......

Today the majority of the DL & WDW PeopleMOver music is played at Disneyland's AUTOPIA...it is cataloged as AUTOPIA GRANDSTAND. For a time many of the Peoplemover tracks from both parks were part of the ALL STAR LIMO que, however it was played at a slightly
higher speed.

Yes, I had the (mis)fortune of riding ALL STAR LIMO, and the highlight was hearing the WDW PeopleMover music while waiting in line. I had pretty much tuned the music out until I was pulled out of my stupor when it came on; then my aural senses were in high alert. Too bad I didn't have a recorder handy!

Next time I visit Disneyland, I guess I'll be spending some quality time at AUTOPIA.
