Best Of Jackie Gleason

LP (Item 117958) Capitol, 1950s — Condition: Near Mint-
(Late 60s Star Line pressing. Cover has light wear and aging.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest Jackie Gleason albums ever! The album has these warm lush orchestrations, with wordless vocals by "The Voices of Artie Malvin" wispily dreaming over it, hence the "Ooooo!" in the title. Tracks include "Thine Alone", "It's All Right With ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie Gleason

Lonesome Echo
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – and the back cover features a photo of Jackie and Dali shaking hands! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good-
Includes pieces by Ravel, Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Kreisler, Albeniz, and an Almeida original. LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good-
Very groovy LP of bongo-oriented tracks conducted by Les Baxter for "young America" (or so says the label!) The overall feel is nice and jazzy, and the tracks have a nice snapping bongo sound. Tracks include "Reverberasia", "Bustin the Bongos", "Brazilian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alvino Rey

That Lonely Feeling
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the mellower albums from Alvino Rey – the amazing 50s pedal steel guitar (or console guitar) player who made some very cool records for Capitol! Although some of Rey's records for the label have the feel of Esquivel's best work, this one's a bit dreamier – still quite odd, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

Sounds Of Adventure
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A 2LP set, released in the mid 60's as a "Capitol Record Club Exclusive" – and one that compiles some of Baxter's best work for the label. The inside of the cover has some good notes on Baxter's career, and the record contains many nice moments like "Dancing Diamonds", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yma Sumac, Barbara Cook, & Others

Flahooley
Capitol, Early 50s. Near Mint-
One of the more obscure Yma Sumac albums from the 50s – a broadway production with a larger cast – and much more of a musical than Sumac's other records. Yma really stands out in the show, though – singing a few special numbers with music by Moises Vivanco – but the rest is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enoch and his orchestra play a mix of Brazilian bossa nova standards like "O Barquinho" and "Meditacao" and pop tunes played in a bossa nova style like "Days Of Wine And Roses", "Moon River", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Blame It On The Bossa ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

Lonely Bull
A&M, 1962. Very Good+
Herb Alpert's first-ever album – a runaway hit that was the birthplace of so many groovy things – not just the start of the Tijuana Brass sound, also the birth of A&M Records! The album's the first to feature Herb's trademark take on the Mexican band style – done here with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Floyd Cramer

Class Of 67
RCA, 1967. Near Mint-
A set that has Floyd Cramer stepping just a bit farther past the modes of the previous year – still working mostly with arranger Bill McElhiney, but also picking up some groovier material as the album moves on. Titles include "Music To Watch Girls By", "Groovin", "Win ... LP, Vinyl record album
