Editorial Reviews

1965's Whipped Cream & Other Delights transformed Herb Alpert & The Tijuana into bonafide superstars, spending an incredible 8 straight weeks at the top of the charts. The album was not only memorable for its music, but for the iconic cover art which featured model Dolores Erickson strategically swathed in whipped cream. The original twelve tracks revolve around the theme of food and include such classics the triple Grammy-winning hit, 'A Taste of Honey' and the Dating Game theme 'Whipped Cream.' This special 40th Anniversary edition features two studio bonus tracks along with a 20-page booklet and a collector's poster. Columbia. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic album, finally revisited. April 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Way back in the '60s, you couldn't go through ANYONE's record collection without finding at least one copy of this album. Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass had taken the country by storm, and this was the album that helped them do it. A&M's co-founder, Jerry Moss, is credited with the idea of making the album about food, and the choice of Dolores Erickson to grace the cover of the album, was no small part in helping this album toward success.

Back in the 1980's, when CDs were becoming a viable format, WHIPPED CREAM AND OTHER DELIGHTS became a natural album to reissue, and it was - both in Japan and in the US. As the '90s rolled on, the album remained in print on CD right up to the year 2000. That's when a settlement occured between Herb Alpert and Universal Music, who through an earlier deal, had acquired Herb's former record company, A&M Records. As a result of that settlement, all of Herb's albums went out of print, including this gem, and have remained out of print until now.

With the rights to the recordings reverting back to Herb himself, Shout! Factory, a small-label division of Sony has now been licensed to remaster and reissue the old albums, with Herb's help and approval. Along with the classic album here are two previously unissued recordings, finished off by Herb for release here.

Included in this 40th anniverary reissue, are the two extra songs, new liner notes by Herb Alpert himself as well as Josh Kun, new remastering by the legendary Bernie Grundman, and a mini-poster of the famous cover.

How does it sound? Bernie Grundman's remastering is amazing, making the sounds of this album more detailed than ever before. All in all, this is one album that'll have you tapping your toes and humming the melodies for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Soundtrack of a Life August 10, 2002
Format:Vinyl
I was born in March 1965, a month later this album was released. Word has it that this was the only thing that could quiet me down. I remember my dad playing this as we cleaned the house, did the yardwork, had barbecues...it was just a part of our daily life. I think at one point in time, I actually took it for granted and then one day I went to go look for it in my dad's record collection and it was gone... horror of horrors! I asked him where it was and he said he gave it away along with a bunch of other junk. I have stalked used record stores in search for a flawless record, but I have had to resort to CD. CDs are great...but they haven't the personality that the old vinyl records used to just exude. One day my dad paid me a visit. I put the CD on and played it at a low but audible volume. He entered my home, sat down, and his ears caught a "whiff" of Bittersweet Samba. Tears formed in his eyes. "This was your mom's favorite song. We used to dance in the kitchen to this song." He told me more about how each track of this very special recording was almost kind of the soundtrack of his life in the 60's. I cherish my dad's stories and I think of them everytime I play this wonderful recording.

Format:Audio CD
This is the 40th anniversary reissue of the Herb Alpert album that is probably better known for its cover art than the music it contains. [WARNING: Bad pun alert!] Its titillating cover launched countless adolescent fantasies among teenage boys everywhere--myself included. [Note: The model was three months pregnant and the photographer used shaving cream.]

When WHIPPED CREAM & OTHER DELIGHTS was released in the spring of 1965, it provided Alpert his first Top 10 single in three years, with "A Taste of Honey" peaking at No. 7. [The title track only reached No. 68 and is best remembered as the theme for TV's The Dating Game.] The album, however, was a huge success. It spent eight weeks at No. 1 and more than a year in the Top 10. Eventually, it would spend almost three years in the Top 40!

Alpert played all the trumpet parts, dubbing and overdubbing as many as four or five times. In addition, he used only the best session players of the day, including Hal Blaine on drums and Leon Russell on piano. The music is the familiar mix of pop and jazz selections that are given the Tijuana Brass treatment. This reissue also features two Alpert originals as bonus tracks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
