I'm searching for a guitar instrumental that was kind of a crossover hit either in the late 60's or the 70's. It was by Andres Segovia with an orchestra in the background. It was an up tempo piece that everyone would recognize if they heard it. It still gets some radio airplay today. iTunes was no help with over 250 Segovia songs. Anyone know the name?

@umpnator,
Why do you call an instrumental recording a "song"? No voices, nobody singing, so not a song. Anyhow, was it "Capriccio Diabolico"?

@contrex,

The word "song" is commonly used in this way, in the music industry and beyond.

Whoo-hoo! This may be a first!

My apologies to anyone who gave this query any significant thought. I sent you on a wild goose chase. As it turns out, the piece (song LOL) in question was not recorded by Andres Segovia, but rather by Mason Williams and is called "Classical Gas". I did enjoy the repartee, though.
Thanks,

Segovia did have a "hit song," though, with a 1960s recording of "Asturias."



This is a performance from many, many years later.

A mistake anyone could have made, mixing up Andres Segovia and Mason Williams.
