This week we will take a look at one of my favorite recording artists – Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.
With over 72 million albums sold worldwide, Alpert’s musical accomplishments include five No. 1 albums, nine Grammy awards, fourteen platinum albums, and fifteen gold albums. He is the only recording artist to hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both a vocalist and an instrumentalist.
It is a personal mission of mine to collect all of the Herb Alpert and Tijuana Brass albums, and so far I have 11 out of 24 albums. His music puts me in a good place, and I hope it does the same fore you!
Whipped Cream and Other Delights – Whipped Cream
South of the Border – Adios, mi Corazon
