    Hard-to-find Main Street Christmas loop songs:

    Well, two of the songs on the Main Street Christmas loop just came out in re-issued CDs:

    1. Hollyridge Strings 'Jingle Bell Rock' (Track 17 on the loop)

    2. Hollywood Bowl Orchestra 'Carol of the bells' (Track 21 on the loop)



    You can buy the Hollyridge Strings album with Jingle Bell Rock here:

    Collectors' Choice Music


    Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra's Carol of the Bells:

    Amazon.com: Music of Christmas: Hollywood Bowl Orchestra: Music


    Still no David Rose Christmas Album, but I'm going to start going to used record store outlets to see what I can dig up.

    Here's Al Lutz's legendary Christmas Loop article:

    Now's the time to start huntin' for all those Christmas classics !

    Re: Hard-to-find Main Street Christmas loop songs:

    I have the complete loop on mp3 now... took a lot of recording of LPs and searching on the internet... but I found them all in very high quality (there's an extremely low quality 32kbps mono floating around the 'net.. sounds like it's playing thru a telephone). The search was both frustrating and fun. Some of the LP's that were used are just CHOCK FULL of great music... and I also stumbled across a couple of great Christmas music sites like www.falalalala.com (where they're currently announcing/celebrating the release of the Hollyridge Strings Christmas album (used in the Disneyland loop) onto CD)

    Kirsten Wahlquist's "disneymusicloops.com" site is referenced there in Al's update. You can go directly to the Main Street USA Christmas Music loop page here.

    I think I also have the complete list of songs in an excel spreadsheet... don't know what hard drive it's currently sitting on but I might be able to find it...

    Thanks for posting those. I've been working on and off collecting the tracks in the compilation.

    You might also visit Vinyl Records, LPs, CDs and Rare Albums. Out of Print Music Albums and Imports. - GEMM.com. I found both of the LPs on that site that were the source of the background loop that played on Main Street USA from 1971 to 1992. It's a nice addition to my Disneyland music library, right next to the current loop. Check back every week or so, new stuff comes up all the time.
