What the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and the Disneyland Railroad have in commonOn October 8, 2017 by ExplorersClub92
I am a big fan of the music played all around Disneyland Paris. Sometimes I watch Youtube videos just to get the feeling of walking around the parks. While watching/listening to all the Frontierland videos I’ve found out that the Disneyland Railroad and Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show have something in common:
They share a piece of the same music.
And the title I am talking about is “The Cavalcade and Maze” from composer George Fenton. The Song is released on the 1992 album “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show”.
It’s basically the first Song in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. It’s the song that starts playing when the cowboys from all four teams ride into the arena for the first time.
I am not sure if the music or at least some of the tracks in BBWWS are from movie soundtracks but I couldn’t find anything about this particular track somewhere else. So I guess it is especially produced for the show. Or was it produced for the Railroad? 😉
Want to see and hear the track I am talking about?
Have a look at this video from 2017 to see the scene I am talking about:
The exact same track is playing in the Disneyland Railroad while departing the Frontierland Depot. Wanna see or better hear it? Here’s a Video from February 2017:
The thing about the Disneyland Railroad is that it seems like sometimes the music and soundeffects are working and sometimes they aren’t. Maybe the Cast Member can decide if they play the soundtrack or just talk for themself? I’ve ridden the Railroad multiple times without sound and just with talking Cast Members. On Youtube you find videos from the past years with and without music.
Where do I get a copy of the Buffalo Bill’s Soundtrack?
You can order it from Amazon. But as it is a very old CD evantually you have to spend a fortune or it isn’t even available:
Probably you are more lucky on eBay.
