You must remember this.....

Yes, it's Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass, from 1965. The TJB, as you probably remember, dominated Middle Of The Road radio in the mid 60's, starting with 1962's "Lonely Bull" all the way through 1968's million selling "This Guy's In Love With You".

But that's not the issue here. Go back to the top of the blog and look at the picture again. It's from the '65 LP "Whipped Cream and Other Delights", which sold an astonishing 6 million copies. I was 15 when the record came out and I bought one. Not sure if it was for the cover or the record inside, though.

Now the fun part. The young lady covered in.......ready?......sure?......shaving cream.....sorry, guys.....is Seattle native Dolores Erickson....

....who now lives in Longview, and was up in Seattle last week to help celebrate the 40th (!!) birthday of Wallingford's Golden Oldies, one of the best used record stores you'll ever run across. Somewhere along the line, she found time to talk to the Seattle Times' Eric Lacitis, and if you didn't see the story he wrote about the LP in Thursday's Times, it's worth a read.

It's a fun article, and well worth your time.

Oh, one bit of Herb Alpert trivia. His last hit was in 1979, the million seller "Rise".

You get 10 bonus points if you can tell me the song's relationship to a then popular ABC soap opera.

Have a great weekend.
