Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass/Various artists-Whipped Cream & Other Delights Re-Whipped


None January 11th, 2007

Shout! Factory

Every music collection needs at least one cover sporting a model in a Reddi-wip bikini. Chances are, your grandparents have one in the form of Herb Alpert's classic 1965 album "Whipped Cream & Other Delights." But a much more revealing one adorns that album's 40th-anniversary remix collection, appropriately subtitled "Re-Whipped."
 
While not aiming to be a replacement for Alpert's original work, the souping-up from top turntablists of today give it back an edge that has been dulled over the decades by so many "Dating Game" reruns.
 
Here, esteemed electronic and jazz acts like Thievery Corporation, Mocean Worker, The Dust Brothers and Medeski Martin & Wood polish off each of the LP's "Delights"' from "A Taste of Honey" to "Lemon Tree," all are named after something you can eat or drink' and turn what has long been considered kitsch into hip.
