This is the first recording, and with the hit title, one can just imagine sunny beaches, bullfights, the whole enchilada, if you'll pardon the expression. Great music.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In 1962, I was four years old. I wasn't so much into music until after I was 5 or 6. However, after I had heard Herb Alpert & the TJB do "Taste Of Honey", I was completely hooked. Was able to have some 45s bought for me, but my friends had the albums. I may have started with "Whipped Cream and Other Delights", but I did backtrack to Lonely Bull. I remember having only Mono albums, as our equipment was mono...very few stereo records for what was a pretty cheap stereo that my parents had. I had even worse until I was a teenager, so I got Mono records. I did not hear these albums in stereo at all until another friend from Vegas played me some of his TJB previous CD issues. These few came and went so fast, I never was able to obtain them, and have lived off "Definite Hits" since its release. After the first play of LONELY BULL in beautifully remastered stereo, my wait is over and my favorite intrumental group of all time is BACK with a vengence. I do agree to an extent with other reviewers where the mono mix and stereo mix versions could have been incorporated. However, not knowing if the public in this day and age will totally jump at having this fantastic music would generate that kind of issue now. This album and SOUTH OF THE BORDER give us a blast from the past, and adding the brand-new LOST TREASURES CD album by itself gives us a taste of what was left in the vaults. If these releases really kick sales-wise, I would think Shout! Factory may go back and combine the Mono and Stereo versions together in "Special Editions" or a box set. LONELY BULL with SOUTH OF THE BORDER and LOST TREASURES offer a great introduction in this new century to some of the greatest instrumentals recorded in the latter part of the last century. WHIPPED CREAM comes April 19 with bonus tracks, and more to follow. However, I don't see Volume 2 noted anywhere in the information included with the Booklet. Great liner notes and informational history provided, with comments from Herb, as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
