40 years ago an album was released by Herb Albert's Tijuana Brass with one of the most memorable cover designs of the 60's - it was naughty, creamy and hard to forget. I'm sure I'm not the only one who used to gaze and fantasize enlessly as a youngster at the look in her eyes...
...oops, that's too much information.
Anyway, the anniversary edition is now available. Personally I think the cd design should have a fold out, full size poster... just a thought.Posted by Rico | Permalink
