While appearing on The Odd Couple in 1975, the legendary Roy Clark of Hee Haw fame quite nicely shunned the musical requests of both Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison. Instead, he performed an absolutely incredible cover version of the Cuban Flamenco song “Malagueña” by Ernesto Lecuona. Clark flawlessly captured the rhythm, melody and tempo of the song with the utmost expertise.
Prior to playing “Malagueña”, Clark acquiesced to Oscar’s request for a little “Mountain Dew”, much to Felix’s dismay. At Felix’s request, Clark also performed for the Lexington Avenue Opera Club.
Here are some other incredible performance from this late, great musician.
RIP Mr. Clark. May you once again play your music many times.
