Topic: Track ID

I have a short sample of a track that I recorded from a pirate radio station in the UK in 1994.  The sample is the intro of the track - it goes on to be a sort of early progressive tune if I remember rightly.

I've been seeking this tune for ages but no one can ID it.  Please help!

Here is the link (bad quality rip from cassette tape!) : soundcloud.com/djrobfrancis/unknown-tune

Thanks in advance for your help.

Does it kick in later? Seems familiar.

Re: Track ID

Yes it kicks in to a 4/4 beat plus a bassline that sounds like other prog tunes of the time.  The break with the strings and piano riff come back in again.

I can't find the rest of the track, its on another tape somewhere which must be lost sad

Re: Track ID

ah shite. Think id need the rest.

Re: Track ID

After much digging around I have found the rest of the track!  Please take a listen and let me know if you have any ideas what it might be.

Again Shazam and SoundHound couldn't help me.

Re: Track ID

I actually managed to track down the DJ who originally played this - that in itself is an achievement albeit a little stalker-ish!  However he can't remember what it is or even remember having played it before.  So it looks like the trail is going very cold...

Re: Track ID

Great tune. Can't help with the ID I'm afraid.

Re: Track ID

Sounds a lot like Lo'ay Watany - Illusion

Re: Track ID

Thanks but I don't think it is.  That Illusion track seems new-ish (2011) whereas the track I'm after was released in 1993, maybe 1994.

Re: Track ID

Right on... figured as much. It just sounded like it had a similar progression. Hope you find out what it is.
