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.

5th album by Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass perfectly recaptures early, 'fun' stereo sound. CD fidelity varies from very good to excellent (bass, openness) but presentation lacks immediacy, realism and timbre. However, a number of songs "take me back," 52 years, to 1965. (hearing my late father playing album endlessly)
Shout Factory has done an incredible job of remastering the album to pristine perfection in glorious stereo...the liner notes are enlightening and well written. All the TJB re-issues are worth every cent you spend on them. If all cds were this good the industry wouldn't be in so much trouble...you get your money's worth and more!
2005 is turning out to be an expensive year, cause I'm buying all the TJB I can get my hands on...but it's WORTH it!
