Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass - Song Of The Week

Herb Alpert became an incredibly successful record executive as co-founder and co-owner of A&M Records with Jerry Moss. He was also one of most successful and recognized instrumental artists of all time with the Tijuana Brass. Having worked at A&M Records as Vice-President A&R, I can tell you Herb was and is a very nice, humble and somewhat shy man.

This week the Treasure Island Oldies Blog is keeping up with the theme on this week's show, the Annual Labour Day Back To School End of Summer Special.

Here's Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass in a rare clip from the 1968 TV special, The Beat Of The Brass, performing The Work Song. It's our Song Of The Week.
