Herb Alpert: The Mariachi Sound
Peter Jones, Beat Instrumental, March 1966
THE CALL from London to A&M Records, on Sunset Boulevard, went through surprisingly quickly. Chap who first answered the phone there was the "M" part of the company, one Jerry Moss. He yelled out for the "A" part, who happens to be Herb Alpert, guv'nor figure of the Tijuana Brass, that instrumental group who roared up the British charts with 'Spanish Flea'.
