 Herb Alpert - Whipped Cream & Other Delights

Herb Alpert - Whipped Cream & Other Delights The instrumental diamond “Whipped Cream” will live on forever as the theme song for the popular 60s show The Dating Game. This remastered version of Whipped Cream & Other Delights will most certainly delight Alpert fans everywhere and gain a new audience as well.

This is album number four in the Herb Alpert signature series and more than likely the most popular and not just because of the cover. Well, it helped then and it does now. I have to appreciate the visuals that are necessary because its instrumental music but I must give full credit to the trumpet player for making all the thoughts and feelings dancing in my head as real as possible. That was the intention originally and it still works. This music remains etched in your mind long after the CD stops spinning.

Just as the previous releases, the packaging and liner notes are excellent, complete with archive photos and get this-a fold out poster of the cover. The little boy that was all eyes affixed on the cover with his mouth wide open is now middle aged. I still love the cover but the music just takes me away. Alpert was a phenomenon that deserves to have all of his music repackaged and remastered.

There is not a bad track on this album, all 14 tracks are sounding fresh and crisp, ripe and ready for new ears to discover. As for the older ears like mine, this unquestionably is a serving of delights.
