THE Instrumental a great many people have been hunting down for a number of years. It is a hybrid of the begining and end parts and not entire.. This is from Shawn Phillips giving the correct story. I have asked him if he wants me to remove his music as i didn't ask his permission to use it. I am awaiting his reply.
From Shawn:
Just so you all know, Shortfits is my nickname for YouTube. thanks for your comments, but I\'d like to set you straight if I may. Jonathan Weston had nothing to do with this piece of music. In fact, he walked into the session, as we were finishing up. I improvised it on the spot with Mick Weaver, and John Shepphard, (Producer for World In Action), paid for the session. At the time, I was not a member of the British Musicians Union, and there was some question as to how I\'d get paid, but Granada told John that night when he called them, that I might make, oh..................2 or 3 pounds at the most. So, Jonathan said we could put his name down as composer, and if anything came in, he would give it to me. Never did any of us dream that this music would run for more than 30 years. it was only 20 years later that I found out Weston had been collecting the royalties all those years. He collected over 189,000 pounds, and never gave me a penny of it. The man was, and remains a slimeball, and an Asshole with a capitol A.

I wish you Health, Love, and Clarity, Shawn Phillips


The Answer:
Absolutely not sir !!!! it's the only way the music will be heard, and the truth of the crime to be out. Thank you for putting it up. Health, Love, and Clarity, Shawn Phillips

To try and keep an impartial balance:

I produced every mili second of this theme which was edited together from a jam session at Trident Studios actually on time while I was producing for polydor records. Just for the record - Jonathan P Weston

To continue, YOU STILL STOLE THE MONEY AND HAVEN'T TRANSFERRED THE COPYRIGHT BACK TO ME. Just to reiterate, and so people know, It was 189,000 Pounds British Sterling. This ain't chump change scumbag. Do I sound angry? Deal with it. I could educate my 4 year old son with that money. Why don't you take out a loan, give me my money, and pay it off with the royalties you're still getting? If this hasn't been eating away at you all these years, you are the personification of what's wrong today.
