Here is the link of the arrangement that I seek help in finding the arranger, orchestra, or any other album titles, etc.

Can anyone help with information about this track?

This belongs in the "Track IDs" section. I have moved your post.

Would it be possible to upload it to something other than Zippyshare?  We're not allowed it in Britain!

Yes, thanks for that notification.    I'll try something other than Zippy for the link.

Ok....hopefully this link will work for hearing the Stayin' Alive file.     If it does not, send me a reply.  I welcome anyone's help or expertise in identifying the Stayin'  Alive arranger or orchestra.     It is a 32 year old or more recording and probably originally done many years before that...my guess late 70's due to the original song from 1977.

Thank you - I'm afraid I don't know it, but I'll have a look and see if I have it anywhere.

Have you heard the version by this 70s Danish instrumental group? Looks promising, but I haven't been able to find the album.

I have heard that version.  In fact, the seller was very kind to send me a sample of their version when I searched months ago.  I had hopes it was the one I was searching for but it was different.     Each version I'm sure has its own appeal to various listeners.  I searched far and wide to find the specific version that I posted which seems unique from the other instrumental versions in its combination of Hammond Organ, Saxophone, Rhodes piano and orchestral strings. .  It is a mystery to its group or orchestra.
I've not heard the Parson Hammond version that was mentioned.

Thank you....immensely for pointing that out.   There was a70's combination of artists CD called Silver Explosion (I think that was the title).    I purchased the Parsons' version of Stayin' Alive as a single song on Amazon without knowing Gary Parsons produced a whole record of songs including Stayin' Alive.  Therefore, I didn't recognize the album or artist even though I purchased the single song.   I don't think Parsons' name was even on the track or acknowledgement that he was the Hammond organist.   The CD had various artists from that era and Amazon allowed for single song purchases or the whole album.

I like his version but still prefer the version I seek.   It must be a real obscure version since nobody so far recognizes it.
