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



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.



George Washington gave his signature
The Government gave its hand
They said for now and ever more that this was Indian Land

"As long as the moon shall rise"
"As long as the rivers flow"
"As long as the sun will shine"
"As long as the grass shall grow"
