Probably the most popular, iconic mood music album ever made, Jackie Gleason s Music for Lovers Only set the stage for untold imitators to come with its evocative album artwork and lush, sweeping soundscapes. Released as a 10" LP in 1952, it set the record which still stands! for most weeks in the Top Ten Album charts at 153, and hit the charts yet again in 1955 when it was released as a 12" LP. But here is where the history of Music for Lovers Only becomes, like most romances, complicated. The original 10" included only eight tracks, but Capitol's first 12" issue of the album added eight more for a total of 16; subsequently, however, the album was reissued on LP with 12 tracks, and the out-of-print sole CD release of Music for Lovers Only featured just the eight tracks from the original 10" release.
