library or easy listening song inquiry
« on: July 16, 2019, 06:36:56 PM »
I'm searching for an arrangement of the Bee Gee's song, Stayin'  Alive.  However, the arrangement is an instrumental version that features Hammond Organ as the main instrument, saxophone, Rhodes Piano background and orchestral strings.   I've heard different arrangements with saxophone but none with Hammond Organ as the main instrument plus saxophone and orchestra.    It sounds similar also to many library music cues but this is probably an arranger for easy listening stations decades ago.    I have a brief recording of it from about 30 years ago and I've saved it to my iPhone but I don't have a specific link to it.
Anybody ever heard of that song with Hammond Organ as the main instrument and also saxophone and strings?

Would need to hear a clip. There were a lot of different easy arrangements of all the Bee Gees tunes. Some were commercial releases, some were Ez library (Bonneville Broadcast, SRP, Starborne, etc).

For what it's worth, here's a hammond version from 1978... but doesn't exactly fit your description, no saxophone or orchestral strings.

Or this, 2nd tune:



But PL is right. See if you can upload the sample you have on your iPhone.

I'll show my ignorance here but I go ahead and seek help.    Thank you for the instrumental versions posted of the song, Stayin' Alive.   I actually purchased the 1978  version posted some time back .    However, the arrangement I have is similar but still  different.  I have the song I desire recorded to my Voice Memos because it was easy to send to people  privately by way of messenger or e-mail.   It was recorded over 32 years ago originally on cassette and then transferred to CD and then currently to my voice memos on my phone.   How do I upload it to the board and this thread?   I don't have a specific link for it such as on YouTube.
