There is whistle on Jethro Tull's "The Whistler" from the Songs From the Wood album.

Manitas, I thought I'd be the only one old enough to remember Tom Hark!

If I only had words by the Christians had whistle on it I think. (They nicked the tune from Sean O'Reada)

I hate to mention it but I think there's some Whistle on some Westlife songs. Or Ronan Keating.

I know your a big fan of both of them jOhn.

Yes, alot of tin whistling on Ronan...supplied by tin whistler extradionaire James Mc Nally (of Afrocelts and ex-Pogue).
Excellent whistling, if you can stomach the vocals?

But McNally has a solo album..'Every Breath', which is all whistle. Mostly low whistle.It is a collection of instrumentals of various classics.

Then again, any Pogues album will have tons on it, and didnt that awful dirgey Titanic song start with a whistle?

Just about everything by the Dubliners will have whistle on it, even Lord of the Dance

This is an old thread - How are you doing with the whistle, John? Last time I heard it was pretty good:-) In case you or anyone needs any more there is a pretty good album by Lick the Tins, they had some chart success with a version of 'Only fools rush in' featuring a tin whistle. Had a very nice version of Hey Joe on the album as well.
