Jackie Gleason Presents Oooo!

LP (Item 7247) Capitol, Late 50s — Condition: 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 Me", "Imagination", "Here Lies Love", "Beyond The Blue Horizon", "Can This Be Love?", "Secret Love", and "High On A Windy Hill".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has partial split on top & bottom, light wear & aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Les Baxter

Ports Of Pleasure
Capitol, 1957. Very Good
A dreamy exploration of south sea ideals from the great Les Baxter – a set that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of his more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – ... 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

Laurindo Almeida

Viva Bossa Nova!
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol (Japan), Mid 50s. Very Good
Not as all-out exotic as some of Les' earlier Capitol albums, but still pretty darn great! The theme here is Carribean exotic, and the rhythms have a little bit more of Cuba and Haiti than they do of primitive Borneo. Les handles them nicely, as always, and contributes some wonderful arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dominic Frontiere

Pagan Festival
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the few good exotica albums to ever come out on Columbia, and a nice set of orchestral pieces, with a slight eastern tinge, and the kind of arrangements that were being used by Les Baxter over at Capitol. A number of tracks have a groovy vocal chorus – and titles include "Temple ... LP, Vinyl record album
