• Herb ALPERT - From Legal Eagles To Tijuana Brass, 1958-1962

Before he arrived in the US Top 10 in November 1962, accompanied by The Tijuana Brass and their 'Lonely Bull', trumpeter HERB ALPERT had spent four years cutting mainstream Pop 45s, under various aliases.

These early 45s run to eight releases, an intriguing body of work which takes in popcorn teen vocals (three of which were bizarrely released under his newborn baby son's name, Dore Alpert), R&R instros and a novelty debut 45.

This unique compilation comprises these early 45s, alongside the mono single version of his breakthrough hit 'The Lonely Bull' and the first, million-selling Tijuana Brass LP, in stereo.

Includes the 'slowed-down' version of his rare-as-hens-teeth collectors' instro 'Fun House', which was released as The Roosters.

These early, pre-Tijuana Brass 45s are unavailable elsewhere on CD, thus making this compilation indispensable to Herb Alpert collectors.
