Whipped Cream & Other Delights is a 1965 album by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, called "Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass" for this album, released on A&M Records.
The Glenn Miller Orchestra did a rendition of the song as the last track on the album "Something New: The Glenn Miller Orchestra plays the Tijuana Brass" (1966) Allan Sherman did a parody of this song on his album Togetherness (1967).As Herb Alpert remembers it, he was in a recording studio one day in 1965 when the art director for A&M, the label Alpert co-owned, showed him the photograph that would soon grace one of the most memorable LP covers of all time. Looking askance at the camera, she touches a long cream-tipped finger to her lips. “Obviously now it would hardly register, but at the time I thought, ' Wow, that’s a little much.' And I didn’t know, quite frankly, whether it reflected the album -- the music I was doing at the time. Obviously that was fortuitous.” It was, because the LP in question, attributed to Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass, was his breakout album, and the photo in question was the now iconic shot of a seemingly nude, doe-eyed young woman sunk up to her décolletage in what appears to be a giant pile of the titular dessert topping.Alpert also has created abstract expressionist paintings and sculpture over two decades, which are publicly displayed on occasion. Acquiring an early wire recorder in high school, he experimented on this crude equipment.Alpert and his wife, Lani Hall, are substantial philanthropists through the operation of the Herb Alpert Foundation. 1 albums and 28 albums total on the Billboard Album chart, nine Grammy Awards, fourteen platinum albums, and fifteen gold albums. After graduating from Fairfax High School in 1952, he joined the United States Army and frequently performed at military ceremonies.
