Editorial Reviews

The first album by the original Tijuana Brass lineup in 30 years, Lost Treasures compiles previously unreleased tracks and hard-to-find rarities, hand-picked by Alpert himself. Herb Alpert was so prolific in the '60s that tons of great songs got left behind in the vaults. Many are interpretations of songs by pop music's greatest writers, including James Taylor's 'Fire and Rain' and The Beatles' 'And I Love Her'. Each album in the Herb Alpert Signature Series features meticulously remastered sound, deluxe packaging, detailed liner notes, and an intro by Herb Alpert containing personal recollections and anecdotes. Sony. 2005.

It was #1 in Billboard the week I was born. I've owned this album in mono and stereo LPs, jukebox mini-LP, 8-track and the previously issued A&M CD.

But I've never heard it like this before! This newly remastered version from Shout Factory blows all previous incarnations away in sound quality. The clarity and depth of tracks like "More And More Amor", "3rd Man Theme", "Walk Don't Run" and "Felicia" make me feel like I'm really hearing them for the first time.

And this album is loaded with classic TJB: "Tijuana Taxi", "Zorba", "3rd Man", "Spanish Flea", "Mae", "Getting Sentimental"...if you added "The Lonely Bull" and "Taste of Honey" to the track listing you'd practically have a collection of greatest hits spanning Herb's first 5 years (which is actually all the 1970 TJB "Greatest Hits" release covered anyway.)

Now, if I had my way, the single versions of "Taxi" and "Zorba" would be included as bonus tracks but my way isn't everyone's way and I won't take off any stars for a lack of extra material.

As the Shout Factory Herb Alpert reissue program continues, I am anticipating each new release more than the previous.

I listened to Going Places as a youngster and loved it. Tijuana Taxi, 3rd Man Theme, Spanish Flea, Walk Don't Run...this album is loaded with great stuff. Several years ago, I realized it was virtually impossible to purchase Going Places on CD. Huh? I couldn't believe it. When I learned the Shout Factory label was reissuing Tijuana Brass albums, I ordered my favorites right away, including this one. This is a terrific reissue...good remastering job, classy packaging, informative liner notes that take you back. Finally.

Format: Audio CD
For many reasons, all unjustified. For starters, they were briefly more popular than the Beatles. It was a studio band and its lead performer overdubbed himself. Its success bred bad imitators, dozens of them, from the Nashville Brass to Ray McKinley's Glenn Miller ghost band (shouldn'ta done it). Then Alpert licensed his music to the Longines Symphonette Society for a multi-disc LP box set. Bad move: it identified the Brass with "easy listening" and a-Lawrence a-Welk. His sound showed up on albums by (among others) Dionne Warwick, the Carpenters, and Burt Bacharach (who enlisted him for "Casino Royale" and briefly owned A&M stock), and on "The Newlywed Game", "The Dating Game", and those atrocious Ant and the Aardvark cartoons. ("Hey Ant!") He also sold chewing gum. Then, as quickly as it came, the Brass went. Alpert became a pop elder statesman and supposed the platinum-selling solo MUZAK he subsequently churned out was better, and some CD transfers in the late eighties came and went too. A&M's huge sale to PolyGram (now Vivendi) and a resulting lawsuit didn't help. Finally, several years ago, prodded by an online Brass fan club, Alpert relented (thank you, Internet), and reissued almost all his output for CD a second time, and are we Brass fans glad he did.

It's stuff you can never tire of. This may seem strange given how the Brass's albums got played to death; but after they disappeared they almost never showed up on the radio again, thus avoiding the fate of most pop hits, which can be tiresome solely for lurking wearily around any corner. It's not just Alpert's musicality that shines through, it's his versatility; you could never pigeonhole him, and nowhere is that more evident than on "Going Places", perhaps his best album. Herb wasn't afraid to tackle anything.

During the 60s, I grew up with all the various music of that decade, but Herb Alpert and the TJB were so different in that they were able to arrange and perform popular songs in a way which in effect made them their own. Going Places may well be their best work, containing one classic song after another. For years, I thought their version of "Walk, don't run" was the original. Listen to the musicianship on "Mae" and "Felicia". And with the classic "Tijuana Taxi", "Spanish Flea", and "Zorba the Greek", this could be a greatest hits album. This is a truly wonderful album and even though I own the entire catalog of TJB on vinyl, I had to get this cd in my collection. It still sounds as fresh today as it did 35 years ago.

About a decade ago, 7 original LPs by the Tijuana Brass were reissued on compact disc but today only two remain in print in the U.S.: The Lonely Bull, and Whipped Cream & Other Delights. This is one of the discs that has been deleted in the states. It's great that this import is still available, because this is a fantastic album. It's one of the groups strongest and most consistent efforts and contains many of their most memorable hit singles, including their in-your-face cover of Anton Karas' Third Man Theme. That thing really swings! Too bad, though, that this disc, like many reissues today, doesn't have any bonus tracks (for instance, the mono single mixes of Tijuana Taxi and Zorba the Greek). If you ever owned this LP, you will want to pick up the CD. It's worth the price.

To me, this is the quintessential TJB album. It certainly is one of the best Herb Alpert ever made, if not the best.

Listening to this CD really brings me back to the 60's and what we all enjoyed about the 2' 45" Top 40 radio song of that era. It was flashy and short but memorable. The classic TJB sound of brass and marimba over a foundation of electric guitar, bass and drums is pleasantly infectious, and it can't help but put a smile on your face.

The order of tunes is perfectly paced with the right mix of fast and slow numbers. There are recognizable Big Band era favorites ("I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", "And The Angels Sing"), a lush, syrupy ballad ("Mae") and ethnic romps ("The 3rd Man Theme", "Zorba The Greek"). "Walk, Don't Run" is arranged as a brief nod to surfer music... or is it in the guise of a 60's spy theme? And finally, there are the hits like "Tijuana Taxi" and Julius Wechter's composition 'Spanish Fly', which we learn was more appropriately renamed "Spanish Flea" by Larry Levine, the session's recording engineer. Alpert's trumpet playing is brilliant throughout this thematic travelogue.

Is this swing/pop music? Is it light jazz/pop? Is it a crossover of many different genres? Whatever it is, it's pretty cool stuff.

I agree with my fellow reviewer Micaloneus that it would've been nice to have the mono version included along with the stereo. I personally grew up on the mono albums, so hearing the stereo version is a real treat- I am hearing things that I didn't remember hearing on the album, such as the background chorus in "Felicia" that appears briefly at 1:10 into the song. Having the mono version would've also doubled the rather scant 30 minute total time of the disc.
