"Best of" package FOURSIDER
by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
"Taste of Honey," the Allen Toussaint-penned "Whipped Cream," "Tijuana Taxi," and "This Guy's in Love with You" are all classic chart hits that are worthy of their respective inclusions. There is also a fair sampling of show tunes from the stage ("Hello, Dolly!" and "If I Were a Rich Man") to the screen ("Casino Royale" and "Last Tango in Paris"), plus the pop standards "More," "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Sunny," and Harry Nilsson's "Without Her." While the digital revolution has yielded longer and equally thorough Alpert collections, few (if any) have captured the purity of the artist's progression or the sheer sense of sonic panache that has all but defined him as clearly as Four Sider.
