Good grief!  What a great surprise - wonderful memories of playing my parent's albums from their limited collection.

Same here, except we had a huge "radiogram".  Beautiful, mellow tone, but certainly no HiFi.

Yah, that's kinda cool. Thanks Bill for the memories ! Herb was a pretty good trumpeter and good showman. Not mu go to artist, but enjoyable and fun for a lot of good reasons.

Nah, really?
Outstanding! Thanks RP, another unexpected pleasure :)
Sweeeeet!

R.I.P. Karl.  I hope you're having the last laugh on this album sleeve somewhere.

P.S.-is there a Randy Breuer statue in Lake City?

I have a memory of someone on UK tv or radio playing this often and singing along to it.  Maybe Chris Evans or Vic Reeves.

I bought this album at the age of 12 about 2 years after it came out.

Racy cover... in context. 
Being a young boy, eating BBQ is a small restaurant with knotty pine wall panels..listening to this song and taking a peek at this album cover on the wall, when mom wasn't looking. 

Was that woman really naked underneath the cream?   Whoa!

Great stuff!

Haven't heard Herb and the Brass for many years.  According to the website the last time you played this track was many years ago.

Please make sure it gets into the rotation a little more often.

Nice surprise! Gave it 8 for my good memories.

My friends and I spent a lot of time making fun of The Dead and their fans - and I was born in 1962.  Most of their music - to me - was tedious noodling, and still is.  This music was fun, at least - even after the drugs ran out.
 
Must be something about being born in '62 then. I was also and I think your definition of The Dead is spot on. I'll take Herb any time.
The Dating Game is it not?

Sorry, but I gave this song a 1. I would have given the album cover a 10, however! I too remember seeing this album in the living room of our old house. Deep red shag carpet, fake wood panelling on the walls, and the huge stereo system all encased in the same fake wood panelling. I also remember hearing this song, but with a little less fond memories. Every time I have heard this song was either in the grocery store or in an elevator. Never thought that RP would play MUSAK !!!!! :P I think appreciation of this crap is generational. I was born in 1969, and my friends and I spent our youths making fun of music like this. That being said, we also grew up wondering where the golden age of rock went (Cream, Dead, classic Stones, Traffic, etc.— love that music, and still do). It was then that we discovered "alternative rock" that was being played on college radio. Too bad all those "alternative rock" stations went corporate.

Lighten up. It's nostalgia. And, it's completely harmless. Plus, I like it. :)

I was born in 1969, and I love this and many other Herb tunes. Your argument that appreciation for this style of music is generational may be flawed, but then again, my 77-year-old father-in-law is a big Herb fan, so maybe there is some truth to that after all!

Ahhhhh brings back memories of my dad and his stereo console . . . this album got plenty of spins on it . . .
From Eliades Ochoa to Herb Alpert. Brilliant.

LOVE it!
holy shite.. I remember this on a little floppy record I got out of a magazine my dad gave me, it was square, and I would play it on my record player. Never knew it herb Albert. I don't think I've heard this in possibly 32 years!
Wow! I'm 9, in the PI, and along with this, Mama's & Papa's, Beatles, Ray Price, and HAIR! I was in heaven, glad my mother was so "hip" then.

I remember being a little kid watching this record spin around on the hi-fi - that massive piece of furntiure in the living room with the sliding doors on top in which the records were stored in one half and the turntable rested in the other half. This sounds great 35 years later. Yikes!
Me too! What a flashback!!! And wasn't the album cover a woman draped in whipped cream or was that another favorite of my parents' collection. . .?

Really excellent to hear this again, always did like them way back when. :bounce:
Omigod! It\'s Al Herbert and the Marijuana Brass! :eek: It\'s nice to have this little reminder that somewhere in the world, someone at this very moment is watching Dating Game reruns ...

Then my taste went through a confused period, before I toked up as a Freshman in College and got into Judy Collins, Joni Mitchel, Buffy Saint Marie, Abbey Road, Incredible String Band, Pink Floyd. In between, in that "wouldn't know "cool' if it bit me" period I bought my first pop albums: Herb Alpert and The Fifth Dimension
This is just horrible. Even the Beatles couldn\'t rescue this song, but if you\'ve got to play it I\'d rather hear their version than this dreck.

Originally on "Whipped Cream and Other Delights" Minneapolis' Soul Asylum parodied that album cover on one of their records. Truly disturbing: Clam Dip and Other Delights See also: Original Or Pat Cooper's Spaghetti
Boy, that takes me back... to when I was a carfree yout. I have a vague recollection of a wooden record player (with tubes!) spinning a 45. What I wouldn\'t give to be able to reach back and slap some sense into that kid! :clap:

Hot-cha! That cover jump-started puberty for me. I think the album was called "Whipped Cream and Other Delights".
Could you PLEASE show a picture of the cover of that ALBUM on the webcam! Great change of pace, and a great refreshing blast from the past for this 50 year old..
Wow. My parents had the record. Now I have the CD. It\'s great to hear this on RP. Put a smile on my face, even before reading the comments :)
I prefer the Beatles\' cover. \"Da-doo da-doo!\"

Other music from this album was used on the Dating Game for many years. Can't remember the title but I can mentally replay it almost flawlessly.
Wasn\'t this one of the tracks off that horrible compilation off TV called \"Instrumental Gold\" ? I guess it\'s OK once in a while, say a year or so. :p
Someone is showing their age! hehe :bounce: Actually have the album myself! :lol:
My dad has this album. The cover featured a nice lass draped in what appeared to be whipped cream. Once I got past that, I would listen to this and Zorba the Greek and Tijuana Taxi endlessly. Great music, great choice Bill. :clap:

Nice! A little out in left field, off the beaten track, whatever--another reason why RP is the best!
Sounds like Muzak to me........
Well, hello 1968!
Wow, now that's a blast from the past. :)
