Following the hugely successful reissues of Whipped Cream & Other Delights and Christmas Album, legendary musician Herb Alpert will reissue four more classic albums from his illustrious career on 180g vinyl including South Of The Border (1964), Going Places (1965), What Now My Love (1966) and Rise (1979). Grammy-winning mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, who was the original mastering engineer on many of the original Tijuana Brass and Alpert albums, mastered and hand cut all four of the new vinyl reissues using a specially designed lathe.
The sound of the Tijuana Brass proved as ubiquitous – and profitable – as that of the best known music makers of the era, on a par with the Beatles, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Hit singles and albums seemed to pour out effortlessly on the A&M label, as Alpert continued to craft the Tijuana Brass sound. Their aptly titled 1965 album, Going Places, was originally issued in October 1965, hot on the heels of the landmark Whipped Cream & Other Delights. It spent 100 weeks in the Top 40, including six weeks at No. 1 thanks to its handful of hit singles which included "Tijuana Taxi," "3rd Man Theme," "Zorba the Greek," and "Spanish Flea."
