Herb Alpert Catalog_Image_2Following the strong reception to the re-release of Whipped Cream & Other Delights and Christmas Album at the end of 2015, legendary musician Herb Alpert will re-release 24 albums on CD with a four titles also being released on vinyl, on September 9, 2016.

Each title has been remastered from the original analog tape mixes by Grammy-winner Bernie Grundman, the original mastering engineer on many of the original Tijuana Brass and Alpert albums.

All releases – many of which have been out of print for a number of years – will be presented with their original artwork.

To generations of music fans, Alpert is the dark-haired, trumpet-playing songmaker whose name instantly brings to mind memorable songs like “The Lonely Bull,” “A Taste of Honey” and the #1 hits “This Guy’s in Love with You” and “Rise” which Alpert recorded either as leader of the Tijuana Brass or as a solo artist, yielding five #1 albums, nine Grammys, 14 Platinum and 15 gold albums – with well over 70 million albums sold worldwide.

Alpert was a hugely successful record label owner, the “A” (to partner Jerry Moss’ “M”) in A&M Records, one of the most successful independent record labels of the last half century, and the longtime home to such artists as The Police, the Carpenters, Bryan Adams, Supertramp and Cat Stevens, among many other platinum classic rock recording artists. He and Moss were elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ironically in the non-performer category.

The 81-year-old Alpert still performs, he’s an acclaimed painter and sculptor, and his philanthropic work which has seen his foundation donate millions to worthy causes.
