    Very good quality recording of the entire Towers Street theme can be downloaded here

    For a recording, it's really excellent.

    Thanks go to Jack.

    On the subject of Towers Street music, has anyone got the (I think) original music, the one that it 23 mins long when the first half is repeated?

    Recording of the full Spinball Whizzer soundtrack, with only a little background noise. Very overlooked I think, it's actually one of the best soundtracks at Towers in my opinion.

    Mono phone recordings of tracks. Not even half of the originally mixed music is physically present!

    I got about 4 seconds into the Spinball thing above and switched it off. Another part of this hobby that is completely lost on me.

    No one is forcing you to listen to it. None of the music has been released so this is all we have at the minute. Hopefully, Alton will follow Thorpe and release an IMAscore CD. Until then, it’s this or nothing and I’d rather have this.

    I didn't listen to much of it, just thought I'd share it for those interested. :)

    That is an interesting read indeed, thanks for sharing. As a nearby resident of Woburn I can see why the council and locals were not keen on the anticipated traffic increase this would have brought as the roads are similar to those through Alton village, just without the scenery. However Woburn is significantly closer to that M1 than Alton is so it wouldn't have been difficult to have overcome the poor road connections if they really wanted to.

    On a different subject, I think I've seen this asked before with nothing ever turning up but does anyone happen to have the royalty free track used on Rita and around UG Land in 2006 / 2007? I've got some (lame) recordings of it but it'd be a needle in a haystack to find it online!

    Since IMAscore released the 3 min Smiler track they haven't released any other tracks of the ride because AT doesn't want them to but some people have managed to get the full 75 minutes track. but is it ok if i can have a copy?

    Came across this interesting video of former rollercoaster at Alton and which ones are still in operation and where they are situated now if anyone still fancy to go and ride them.
