Jackie Gleason presents "Oooo!" (Mono rip)
Friends, do you ever feel like you want to vocalize, but you don't really have anything to say? Well, you could become a politician and you'd probably go far, or you could do the more sensible thing and join Artie Malvin's choir. They're featured here as an integral part of Jackie Gleason's orchestra in tonight's offering, our personal mono rip of the 1957 release "Jackie Gleason presents 'Oooo!'" As you probably already know, nobody did mood music quite like Jackie Gleason, and this oooo-tiful release is a serious oooo-gasm for the ears.
This collection was released on four 7" EPs as well as 33 1/3 vinyl, as were many albums of this era, and altogether there are 16 tracks. That's a whole lotta OOOO! This album is out of print, and if it was ever released on CD in its entirety, we can't find any evidence of it. As a bonus, I added two of the tracks with enhanced reverb and dreamy delay, just for a little extra oooomph. You're gonna love it!
Your OOOOgasmic download is here!
