1.  "Theme for an Imaginary Western" is a song written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown. The song is
sometimes referred to as "Theme from an Imaginary Western." It has been performed by many artists,
including Mountain, Jack Bruce, Leslie West, Colosseum, Greenslade, DC3 and Johan Asherton.
    The song originally appeared on Bruce's Songs for a Tailor album in 1969. The lyrics by Pete Brown
are mentioned in Brown's autobiography "White Rooms and Imaginary Westerns" (ISBN 978-1906779207)
as being in reference to Bruce's erstwhile bandmates Dick Heckstall-Smith and Graham Bond of
The Graham Bond Organisation.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theme_for_an_Imaginary_Western
2.  It has been creatively merged with Jack s solo vocals and Leslie West s unique guitar style,
but it is incorrectly attributed to Leslie West on YouTube, by MISTY2008.

3.  This is my interpretation of Jack Bruce s original, which differs from other versions.
