Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass - Vol. 2... where are you!
Micaloneus | the Cosmos | 01/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass ~ Vol. 2" was recorded in 1963 but didn't hit the Billboard 200 until January 1966 between the "Going Places" and "What Now My Love" albums, peaking at #17.

Too often we tend to think of "V2" as some kind of discarded pile of junk, because of it's rather ill-fated original reaction. But "V2" has always been one of my favorite Tijuana Brass albums. It makes me imagine a romantic Madrid. There's more of an international sparkle to this album, a Spanish feeling. It's unquestionably a party album and not as commercial sounding as some of the later releases.

Listener reaction is mixed on this album, some like the more authentic Tijuana sounds, while others feel it is gimmicky, with the occasionally crowd noises. I believe Herb did a spectacular piece of work with this album. I still play my mono copy quite frequently. Hopefully I'll feel good about the stereo version when it finally makes it's second appearance on compact disc. I will certainly purchase it.

Romantic Summer Days and Nights in Spain

"I loved this album on vinyl -- as a teenager in California I dreamed of romantic summer nights and days in Spain. "Winds of Barcelona" was the peak in the sequence on side one, and ending with the whimsical "Milord" was the perfect coda to side two. Now I have The Lonely Bull, South of the Border, Whipped Cream and Other Delights, Going Places and What Now My Love on cd -- but Vol. 2 is just as good and is my favorite Tijuana Brass recording.
