Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass - Christmas Album (1968)
Well, it's good to be back! And I was able to get this Christmas album recorded, cleaned up, and uploaded before Sunday!
I have to tell you how much I love Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. It brings back such good memories of growing up and listening to my mom play their records. And I tend to associate the Christmas holidays and parties with their music since a couple of my memories are of watching the grown-ups dance to this album and the "Whipped Cream" and "Tijuana Taxi" albums at my parents' holiday parties. I even remember what I wore at one of these - a little green velvet dress and black go-go boots - pretty groovy!
Well, anyway, I hope this album gets you in the holiday spirit!
