Jackie Gleason- Aphrodisia
Many people may only know Jackie Gleason as a fat bus driver threatening to beat his wife on The Honeymooners, but he also made tons of albums of tender songs for the sole purpose of creating an atmosphere for romance, and he was sure great on both fronts. Gleason also never used percussion, which makes his music that much woozier. Instead of the usual solo trumpet, a wheezing organ takes the lead on this album which is a nice touch. This record will turn your brain to butter whether you want to have sex with someone or not.
