Classical Gas ... one of my all-time favorite instrumental pieces! You should also listen to his wonderful song, "The Last Great Waltz."
Great video but boy what an obvious "lip" sync. Ah the good ol days
Later, he recorded an album featuring it (along with several other songs of his) with C.W. McCall's backup band. Yeah, the guy who did "Convoy" — THAT C.W. McCall. It was surprisingly good.Williams and McCall may no longer be performing much any more, (Williams is in his 80s, and McCall is on the far side of 90), but McCall's band's still going strong. You might have heard of them.They go by the name "Mannheim Steamroller" now.-"BB"-
