ITEM#: 2659072

Presented here is a collection of songs performed by a wealthy gathering of supremely talented musicians, led by Mason Williams, a legendary songwriter/composer in his own right. Released under the Warner Bros. label, the album Music 1968-1971 is just that -- pure music with soul, passion, and enough fire to fuel a storm and light the listener's spirit. Through the magic of tunes such as the instrumental "Greensleeves," the country-flavored "Cowboy Buckaroo," and the witty rhymes and rhythms of "J. Edgar Swoop," listeners' ears are well entertained. What is most enriching about this recording is the large group of musicians from all backgrounds who send the songs into higher soundscapes. The lyrical content on the majority of the songs is mature and the melodies ring loud and clear with passion, flair, and at times romance, such as the sweet and endearing "Sunflower." Williams ends the album with a touch of finesse and adoration to his appreciative fans, expressing his sincere feelings in "A Gift of Song," a song written by Pat Ingles, a favorite singer and influence. ~ Shawn M. Haney

    "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..."
