Making the Music for "America on Parade"


I have edited and uploaded a historical video made by Jack Wagner during the making of DL/WDW "America on Parade" which ran from 1975-1976. The recordings were the underlying music heard throughout the parade with each float.

The video is on the front page of www.waltsmusic.com I do not think this is available anywhere else?

This was fun to watch, though took a little work to get the video to play (I had to log in first). So was the organ music for this parade lifted from pre-existing "cards" that they just recorded, or did they have arrangements made for the organ and then record them?

Not sure if they used new or existing cards for the music.

I am thinking I will post the video to YouTube and link it that way as it will be easier to view. :blink:

Thanks for this. I do love the "live" organ music (and rue the day DLRP ripped out the works of Big Nelly and replaced it with a CD). :(
No problem playing it although the PC stuttered and stammered a little (needs the tubber band tightening methinks) :blink:
 
That was interesting to see how they recorded the Sadie Mae with all of the microphones placed throughout. I am playing the picture disc now as I type this with the final results with the Moog sounds added. Being born in 1976, it's unfortunate not have been able to experience AOP live but now I can thanks to Super 8mm film.
