Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass Volume 2

LP (Item 608002) A&M, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

(Vinyl has a short click on "Green Leaves Of Summer".)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

Sounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass
A&M, 1967. Very Good
Sounds like Herb Alpert, but it grooves in ways that we hardly expected – playful, creative, and filled with so many more rhythms than just the Tijuana groove we might have thought! There's a real deepening sense of instrumental pop going on here – as Herb explores some of the darker ... LP, Vinyl record album

Baja Marimba Band

Baja Marimba Band
A&M, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
After the huge success of Herb Albert's Tijuana Brass albums, A&M got vibist Julius Wechter (ex-Martin Denny) to come up with a similar ensemble in the Baja Marimba Band. The group has a goofy pseudo Mexican sound – but is really just a bunch of LA studio guys goofing it up on pop tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach

Burt Bacharach (1971)
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
Insanely wonderful work by Bacharach – in a way that we can hardly begin to describe (but we'll certainly try!) By the time this one was recorded – 1971 – Burt's reputation as a songwriter and arranger were so firmly established that he had an incredible amount of freedom in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marty Gold

Sounds Unlimited
RCA, 1963. Very Good+
Soaring sounds from RCA maestro Marty Gold – maybe not the totally unlimited record you might expect from the title, but definitely a key 60s entry in the genre of bachelor pad hi fi records! There's a fair bit of horns in the orchestrations, with solos by Don Butterfield, Joe Wilder, Phil ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Best Of Mancini
RCA, 1964. Near Mint-
Strong compilation of some of his hits from the sixties. One side's got TV stuff – like "Mr. Lucky" & "March Of The Cue Balls" – the other's got film stuff – like "Experiment in Terror" and "Baby Elephant Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

Marty Gold & His Orchestra

Sticks & Bones
RCA, 1959. Very Good+
Sticks & Bones – percussion and trombones – a great little combination in the hands of hi-fi arranger Marty Gold! The album's one of Marty's most dynamic for RCA – a nice little set that soars with creative arrangements that definitely push the sound spectrum of the average ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest Jackie Gleason albums ever! The album has these warm lush orchestrations, with wordless vocals by "The Voices of Artie Malvin" wispily dreaming over it, hence the "Ooooo!" in the title. Tracks include "Thine Alone", "It's All Right With ... LP, Vinyl record album

Felix Slatkin

Fantastic Percussion
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
Lots of percussion – and loud! Slatkin's normally a bit sleepy, but this record's filled with drums and chimes and vibes and loads of exotic percussion instruments – and swings with a groove that's in the best of the Liberty easy styles from the late 50s. Titles include "Night ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hollyridge Strings/Stu Phillips

New Beatles Songbook
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Lots of Revolver-era gems – including "Nowhere Man", "Norwegian Wood", "Michelle", "Yesterday", and "We Can Work It Out". LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
An unusual concert performance from Henry Mancini – one that features the maestro leading a full orchestra, but with a really groovy feel overall! Each track is relatively long, and based around a set of smaller songs wrapped up in a medley – almost mini-symphonies in pop music, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Schory's New Percussion Ensemble

Music To Break Any Mood
RCA, 1960. Very Good
Classic bachelor pad listening! Dick Schory's percussion ensemble lays out a bunch of wild loopy tracks with percussive touches, and the kind of hi-fi groove designed to split your speakers (or break your mood, as the case may be!) Lots of drums, bells, gongs, cymbals, and other percussive ... LP, Vinyl record album
