Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – Whipped Cream & Other Delights (1965/2015)FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 k Hz | Time – minutes | 637 MB | Genre: Jazz Studio Master, Official Digital Download – Source: HDTracks | Front Cover | © A&M Records1965’s Whipped Cream & Other Delights transformed Herb Alpert & The Tijuana into bonafide superstars, spending an incredible 8 straight weeks at the top of the charts.
To wit, the game would feature a boy selecting 1 from the 3 Bachelorettes.
Morgan, Bob Saget and Murray "The Unknown Comic" Langston.
Ostensibly, the personnel wasn’t a primary consideration as Alpert and company had already begun making serious inroads on the pop music scene.
Not bad, considering the market was being heavily infiltrated, if not practically dominated by the British Invasion.
Rather, it could be heard as bachelorettes were being introduced on ABC-TV’s The Dating Game.
Early in the series run, additional Alpert offerings were also incorporated as incidental music: “Spanish Flea,” as the bachelors were being announced, “Lollipops and Roses,” when the lucky winners were being told where they would be spending their date, and both “Ladyfingers” and “Lemon Tree” were in rotation as contestants mulled over their answers.
