I've been listening to his music since he started recording!. I didn't know much about his bio 'til recently. Like half owner of A & M Records. Love his music! Listen to it frequently. Have about 6 cd's by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.
I have all his Tijuana Brass CD's but I hate his other stuff as much as I love his old stuff! I have been a fan of his original music since about 1966 when I was 16... Timeless stuff! (I still have quite a few LPs from that time)
I also loved and still love Bert Kaempfert and a bit of James Last. I also have Best of Baja Marimba which is related to Tijuana Brass.
I am mainly a Classical & Baroque Music lover so if I like a light music orchestra or singer it has to be really good…
I go to the same antique store every weekend sifting through the thousands of vinyls, and everytime the owner fails to recognise the tijuana brass collector girl and tells me about how he went to tijuana and saw them in a seedy bar through a tequila induced haze in the middle of the day. Love Zorba the Greek :]
