"Classical Gas" was basically Mason's only major hit and the original version is not on this album. The original orchestral version is the one I wanted. The album has the solo version of "Classical Gas" but I'm an originalist (if there is such a word). I like the song to be the way I first heard it and when I lay out good money that's the way I want it. The rest of the album is very good but as they say "one bad apple..."
