Following the hugely successful re-releases 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.
In 1979 Alpert recorded another of his now-signature tunes, "Rise," which went on to become the theme for the 1980 Olympic Games. Found on the album of the same name, divided evenly between stirring originals (including hit follow-up single "Rotation") and compelling covers (including numbers from Joe Sample, Bill Withers), the triple platinum release peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz Album chart and No. 6 on both the Billboard Pop 200 and R&B Album charts.
