Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in
whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in
place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in
that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in
a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball".
(Cover has some wear and a faded spine.)
