Grreat collection-audio quality needs to be remastered
Fantastic, but in need of an upgrade

"Just about every great number the Brass ever did is on this CD, and noone ever did instrumentals better or came up with more innovative arrangements than Herb Alpert, who surely is a genius. For example, Love Potion No. 9 sounds nothing at all like the original, the beat and rhythm are totally rewritten, but the result is a fresh masterpiece. Same with A Taste of Honey and so on down the line, there is not a weak song or even a weak bar here, and even the group's pop hits such as Tijuana Taxi don't seem too corny. The one big drawback here is the sound, it is a bit hissy and muddled, and surely with all the remastering that has been done the past several years someone should see fit to do the same for this outstanding music. Let's hope so."
Class act, class collection

"Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass soared to the top of the charts with catchy, spirited tunes. Not only was the TJB a lot of fun to listen to, but they also made some important music. This collection has it all. From the real crowd noises recorded in the Tijuana bullring on "Lonely Bull", to the swinging versions of "Taste Of Honey" and "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", to the ultimate ballad "This Guy's In Love With You", this is a no-brainer for a music collection. Not only does this showcase Alpert's arranging style, but also his producer skills. This will bring back some very pleasant memories of the 60's. Wonderful stuff!"
