Clearly, the loop was heavily influenced by Windham Hill artists and compilations, most notably the compilations Summer Solstice and Sun Dance: Summer Solstice, Vol. 3. Windham Hill was an independant record label founded by Will Ackerman (artist of several songs in this loop). Windham Hill artists have had a strong influence on other park music loops, such as the Epcot Innoventions Loop (inspired by and including the song Papillion by David Arkenstone) and the Studios' Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure loop (which features 7 tracks by Ray Lynch). The label was bought by Sony BMG in the early 90s.
