Herb Alpert - Volume 2 (1963)
Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass! One of my all time favorites anyhow. I grew up with his tunes, and many songs from that time I only knew as his versions. Great music, although some people disagree... This is Herb´s second best album overall. "But why don´t you introduce us to his best album? Why the second best?" I hear people say. It´s pretty easy: You can buy his BEST album at internet-dealers all over the world, but it´s hard to find his second best. There are many tunes on this record that I know from those happy childhood-days, but not as many as on his best album. Plus it´s a record dedicated to numerology. You didn´t know that? So, I give you a summary:
2.) It´s his second album ever
2.) It´s his second-best album
2.) It´s the album of him I like second-best
2.) This album is on the second shelf in my record-collection
2.) My father bought this album on the 2nd of August
2.) This album features two sides, side A and side B
2.) And how many grooves are there on this record? Yep, two. I counted them.
There are many, many more links to the number "2" on this album, take your time and try to find them. It all boils down to 2. What would be more likely than to name this album "Volume 2"? Now you understand...
Please enjoy Herb Alpert at his (second-)best!
