Electric Light Orchestra - Wild West Hero [Edited Video Version]Details

This version from the promo video differs from the original Out Of The Blue version in that it notably includes the sounds of western movies mixed into the beginning and end of the song as well as gunfire at the very end as, in the video, the band is shooting guns on stage. More subtlely, it cuts two full seconds of strings following the second chorus and before the guitar bridge.
