The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 67

Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.


Classical Gas – Mason Williams

“Classical Gas” is an instrumental musical piece composed and performed by Mason Williams with instrumental backing by members of the Wrecking Crew. It was released as a single in 1968. Originally named “Classical Gasoline”, the song was envisioned to be “fuel” for the classical guitar repertoire. The title was later shortened by a music copyist.

  1. Oh I remember this as a teen growing up! Great. 🙂

  2. I did not know that song but I like it a lot, Kris! Love instrumental music, most of all as a background while writing. Happy weekend!

  3. Love Nadon Mollimd and this gem of a composition.

  4. Chell speck mulfanction is more appropriate! “Classical Gas”… memories!

  5. Classical Gas…not heard that in a very long time Chris. Brilliant idea though, this dedicating a blog to the year of ones birth. It’s got me thinking there could be a whole sub culture of people doing the same and re-learning the past. Collecting blogs from each year and walking the history from them. Love it!

    • Thanks so much for this. And yes, wouldn’t it be great to link things together like you say. All the very best and so good to have you around. Kris. 😃

      • You’re very welcome 😊
        And imagine all the positive things we’d find out about each year rather than, maybe, looking back at bad stuff AKA news and media. I’d certainly be looking for cool and inspiring stuff. Maybe this is material for a challenge. Ten positive things from the year of your birth…will think on this 🙃

  6. Who doesn’t love “Classical Gas”?!

  7. Your Rolling Reviews can bring back so much. For a few minutes the years just slip away. Not necessarily a good thing. (Who really wants a replay of adolescent angst?) But neither too dire a reminder.

    • It is a wee bit Catch-22 when it comes to all those memories. Bittersweet very often I know. But I think that inside we are still adolescent, childlike even, and I hope that it will never fade.
