40th anniversary of Classical Gas;
Classical Gas with Mason Williams and the original Dan McLaughlin "Classical Gas Video" as it appeared on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in 1968.
Mason Williams was the head writer for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour at the time of the song's release. The song saw its television premiere on the show and Williams performed it several times over several editions. After the song had reached the Top Ten, Williams asked an experimental filmmaker named Dan McLaughlin to create a video montage of classical art works edited in time to the music, using a visual effect now known as kinestasis. The pioneering work, "3000 Years of Art", premiered in the summer of 1968 Recorded at the oakridge Tree Planting festival, 2008.
