An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single of Wild West Hero by ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) the British rock band,  from 1977 and released on the Jet Records label. This vinyl single has been carefully reworked into a  silhouette of a gun totting cowboy ready to draw his pistol.

Wild West Hero was written reputedly by lead singer Jeff Lynne in 4 minutes whilst on holiday. Melvyn Gale, normally the band’s cellist, provided the Western-style piano for this track. It was release in 7” and 12” formats, the latter being in bright yellow vinyl which helped sales and made it become one of their most popular hits. The chorus of the song, Wild West Hero, has the same chord progression as Pachelbel’s Canon’s but transposed from D to G, which is the tonality of “Wild West Hero”. The only exception is the 7th chord of the chorus, which is A instead of C.
