    If it's got whistling in it, it might be by Frank Valdor - a lot of whistled test card music was by him.

    One piece of whistly spaghetti western music which gets used a lot (although never on the test card to my knowledge) was Franco Micalizzi's theme from 'Un Pistollo Della Ave Maria', which must have been reiussed as a library track, 'cos it turns up everywhere.

    A spaghetti western piece that was actually used on the test card was the theme from 'They Call Me Trinity', but that was a vocal track, so it's probably not the one. (And there's also Walter Rizzatti's disco version of 'The Man With The Harmonica', which is ace&#33

    Any chance of any more info, such as whenabouts it was used, as I reckon I could probably find out what this is.

    So there you have it - not much help as usual - soz
    Not at all Lee, even if that's not the one he means I'm sure he'll appreciate it. The man's western mad and he also likes his records, particularly 45s, so on the title alone I reckon that'll be right up his Corral!

    Cheers!
