Man, Google's awesome. To learn more about Gleason the musician, Click Here (spaceagepop.com)

(image removed)


Capitol Records W-455 - 1957. This was originally a 10" EP (H-455) containing eight fewer tracks. I don't think there's a stereo version (label number would begin "SW" instead of "W"), at least not after spending an entire minute on Google and that's all you get because I'm LAZY

Purchased: 1 Mar 2001
From: Probably Big Al's Record Barn in San Jose, CA
Price: $1?

And finally, if you're REALLY adventurous (and/or bored), you can read the liner notes on the back cover by clicking here. (102K JPEG)

Hey! I have that! My mom sent it to me because she thought it would look cool as wall art. I also have another in the Jackie Gleason series.

EDIT: It says right there on the back that he conducted the orchestra, but you're probably right about it just being a name-brand thing.

EDIT (again): Hey! No fair editing while I'm looking at your big-ass JPEG!

Gleason also released an album called "Jackie Gleason Presents Music to Remember Her". And believe me, it works! I listened to it last week, and I can't believe I forgot I has a twin sister. Not to mention my wives from Utah and West Va.!

For those interested, here's some more peculiar albums:

Pics are included, but so are some popups

(That's where I got my sigpic from.)

According to Larry King, Gleason couldn't read music, and arranged and conducted his recordings by ear...if is didn't sound right, they tweaked it until it did.
