Groovy Friday – Let’s take a ride!

Here’s Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. They sold more albums in the 60s than The Beatles.

It’s Friday!

Here’s Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.  If you’re not familiar with the enormous influence Herb Alpert had on the music industry in the latter half of the twentieth century, look it up.  You’re connected.  Go ahead.  I’ll wait.

I grew up listening to these guys.  They sold more albums in the 60s than The Beatles.  My parents had several of their albums, but “Going Places” was the family favorite.  There’s an endlessly groovy version of “The Third Man” theme that closes out side one, but this was the big hit from that album and it’s pretty damn groovy as well.
Special thanks to Scopitone.  We’ll be hearing and learning more about them in the weeks to come.
Have a groovy weekend!
