Friends (MIDNIGHT SUN) Liner notes: In the mid 1960's, Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass were arguably the hottest act in pop music. They were the only act to ever have four albums in the Billboard Top 10 at the same time. In 1965 they dominated the number one spot for eighteen weeks which is longer than any other act. From 1965 to 1968 they earned twelve gold albums including five that reached number one. Even if you didn't own a record player, it would have been nearly impossible to escape their sound. From Emmy nominated TV specials, to theme songs for television shows, to commercials and main title songs for motion pictures, and especially the radio where you were likely to hear one of their fourteen top 40 hits. By the mid 1970's the Tijuana Brass disbanded and Herb moved on to a new direction. "Rise" was the 1979 instrumental that put Herb back in the number 1 spot on the charts and back in the Grammy winner's circle. It signaled a new sound that carried Herb Alpert into the top 10 on both the pop and R&B charts for the first time. Herb's drive to stay contemporary also extended his musical appeal to the prevailing trends of the day without ever compromising his signature sound or artistic integrity. Herb Alpert's emphasis throughout his career has been on experimenting with new sounds and yet never abandoning the easy listening approach. His music is mellow and dynamic and has an appeal that transcends the generations from The Lonely Bull, through Whipped Cream, past Rise and Fandango and to the latest release Passion Dance, Herb Alpert has shown that great songs, a special care for the arrangements and broad and varied instrumentation make him the universal artist of our time. Rondor Music would like to thank all of the writers and musicians who contributed to creating this great music. We also want to thank A&M Records and Almo Sounds for allowing us to use these recordings.
