If you know just one Herb Alpert song, it’s probably Tijuana Taxi.

And if you know two, the other is one you probably don’t know the name for but have heard it on countless occasions: Spanish Flea.  Now if you were to buy just one Herb Alpert album to take in the Latin flavor of his trumpet, Going Places! would be a safe bet.  Not only does it have the two aforementioned songs, but it also has a Go-Go cover of The Ventures’ hit Walk Don’t Run.

Bottom line: this album is a 60s classic that should be revered and plated until it is grey!
