Default The way old friends do. Air

[This Air is on the 1996 Victoria Police Live in the Rockies album. I don’t have the composers name...haven’t found it among multiple sheet music sites I’ve scoured.

Has anyone a clue where the sheet music might be found?

Cheers

So it occurred to me the Victoria PB Ď Live in the Rockies Ď performance maybe likely had something to do with our very own Rocky Mountains.

If thus is so....does anyone recollect what band or organization might have been involved with Ďsponsoringí the VPB back in the late 90ís to make the Ď Live in the Rockiesí performance happen ?

Here's the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards' version:

Here's ABBA's version:

Here's the Alexander Brothers' version:

Shouldn't be too hard to transcribe.

Guys, I've had to delete a number of posts here. I don't want this forum to get in trouble again. The tune is not an "air", it's a very well known song written by Bjorn and Benny from Abba and performed by Abba. PRS database says it's sold over 5 million and is still very much under copyright and will be till at least the 2070's.

Please respect the forum rules, they are there to protect the forum. If you don't actually own the copyright of a tune 100%, then don't post copies of it here, it's illegal and has caused this forum legal problems in the past

The RSDG version is quite good...P/M Bruce with a superb set of Pipes going on the solo...lovely to hear the concert pitch...I wrote an arrangement of this quite a few years ago and the band I was playing with would do this at concerts with a keyboard and drum kit accompaniment..was always well received..no, I can't share the sheet music as per Adam's advisement but it's easy enough to sound out by ear...the RSDG CD is called In The Finest Tradition..released circa 1992..worth every penny.
