Every single thrift store I have ever been in has had a copy of this Herb Alpert album.  I finally decided that if everyone thought it was worth purchasing in 1969, that maybe it had to be good. I bouth it at shop that was have a 20 records for $2 sale, so it was a small price to pay to satiate my curiosity.

The best ten cents I've ever spent; it's pretty great!

Nothing can turn a frown upside-down quite like this record. Even the cats are dancing!

It's really fun to do just about anything to, really. I've written papers for school while hanging out with ol' Herb.

The next time you come across it, give it a chance. You will adore it. I promise.

Isn't that video incredible?!

My father was a really big fan of theirs and I grew up listening to Herb. When I was a little girl, they played at the New Haven Coliseum and we went! It was awesome.
