The resulting product, The Mason Williams Ear Show, emerged not as a sequel but an elaborate companion piece with even more quirkiness, including a stunning remake of "Baroque-a-Nova," a track from the previous disc allegedly written for Simon & Garfunkel to perform on The Smothers Brothers. Here "Baroque-a-Nova" is arranged again by the great Al Capps, the jingle sounding instrumental, feeling like a "Classical Gas" redux (the earlier version having backing vocals, this equally excellent rendition simply an instrumental)

Mason Williams was someone I grew up with sharing a bedroom with a sister who played his music non-stop. Case and Music DVD came in great shape and am enjoying the music. isn't life gay? Isn't life the perfect thing to pass the time away?" Door closes. I would have bought the older version of the album had I known that "Baroque A Nova" would be an instrumental. I like the original version with voices better, but the rest of the songs are the same.
