 Notes & Reviews
 
Herb Alpert's Ninth is a 1967 album by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. It reached number 4 on the Billboard charts and spent 18 weeks on the Top 40.[1] It was the last album by the Tijuana Brass to be released in both mono and stereo versions; all albums afterward would be released in stereo only. - It was, as it's title indicated, the ninth album released by the Brass. It's cover, in addition to a number of still photos from Brass concerts, included a pop-culture joke. Ludwig van Beethoven had been a popular topic on T-shirts in the late 1960s. In this case, an illustration of Beethoven was shown apparently wearing a T-shirt with Alpert's face on it. The title was also a play on Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. None of Beethoven's Ninth actually appeared in the album tracks, but another classical work did - a medley of the tunes from the opera Carmen, centering on 'Habanera', and also including 'cameos' from some of the group's earlier hits - 'Spanish Flea', 'A Taste of Honey', 'Whipped Cream', 'What Now My Love', 'Zorba The Greek' and 'Tijuana Taxi' - worked into the track.
