Gloria A-Glo

Midnight In Moscow
Gloria A-Glo
Featuring The Instrumental Sounds Of Gloria Tracy
Arranged by Jud De Naut
Hanna-Barbera Records HLP-8501

Hanna-Barbera apparently "introduced" Tracy on this LP, packaged in a nice gate-fold jacket. Tracy was a bombshell harpist who (from 1964 Sarasota Herald-Tribune): Unlike most harpists, Miss Tracy doesn't concentrate on classical music. She prefers jazz. "But it's not progressive jazz," she said. "It's music that people can understand. I'm trying to bring the harp down to where people can understand it."

This album is an excellent early 60s light pop/jazz LP.
