On Sept. 9, trumpeter Herb Alpert will re-release 24 classic albums on CD from throughout his renowned career, following the successful re-release of Whipped Cream & Other Delights and Christmas Album at the end of 2015. All releases, some of which have been out of print for several years, will be presented with their original artwork.
Each title, including four additional titles to be released on LP, will be remastered from the original analog tape mixes by Grammy-winning mixing engineer Bernie Grundman, the original mastering engineer on multiple Tijuana Brass and Alpert albums. Grundman also mastered and hand-cut the four vinyl re-releases using a specially designed lathe.
Yielding five No. 1 hits, nine Grammy Awards, 14 platinum and 15 gold albums, plus a staggering 72 million albums sold worldwide, Alpert has put out such memorable songs as “The Lonely Bull,” “Rise,” “A Taste of Honey” and “This Guy’s in Love With You,” either as a solo artist or with Tijuana Brass.
