Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass - 1968 - The Beat Of The Brass
Herbert "Herb" Alpert is an American musician most associated with the group known as Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. He is also a recording industry executive — he is the "A" of A&M Records (a recording label he and business partner Jerry Moss founded and eventually sold). Alpert's musical accomplishments include five number one hits, twenty-eight albums on the Billboard charts, eight Grammy Awards, fourteen Platinum albums and fifteen Gold albums. As of 1996, Alpert had sold 72 million albums worldwide. The Beat of the Brass was the tenth album release by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. The album was released on the heels of a television special by the same title (telecast April 22, 1968 over CBS). Tom Mankiewicz, who wrote the special, also provided liner notes for the album as well. It includes Alpert's only major vocal hit, "This Guy's In Love With You", which became an overnight success due to its inclusion during the special, in a sequence featuring Herb and his wife, Sharon.
