    Is there any plan to release the 45 single only "El Bimbo" and other Herb Alpert rarities on HAP label?

    Thanks,
    Ricardo Jr.

    If so, the only way to obtain El Bimbo is to get a copy of the 45 rpm single vinyl record.

  4. That would be mostly correct. Some territory somewhere issued a Herb Alpert album with El Bimbo on it. Search the forum and you should find it.

    Thanks Harry! I already have a 45 RPM copy of El Bimbo single record on a NM vinyl. I'm just wandering if HAP will release a new version of "Lost Treasure" CD with "El Bimbo" included in a new compilation.

    Yes. "El Bimbo," the single release by Herb Alpert and the TJB which was released at about the same time as the album "Coney Island."

    Thanks Harry! I am very cautious when buying non-USA compilation of Herb Alpert/the Tijuana Brass tracks and any American artists because of the questionable higher generation sources. I stay with the country of origin of the artist as much as I can. By the way, I ordered a white label promo copy of the 45 rpm single of "El Bimbo" with the stereo version on Side A and the mono version on Side B. I'm not sure if the mono version is a true mono mix or just a mono fold-down of the stereo mix. It's like my Minty white label promotional copy of the Alessi 45 rpm single "Oh, Lori" on A&M label with the stereo version on Side A and the mono version on side B.

    That is a very good wise rule one thing to keep in mind you will find posts around the forum concerning unauthorized bootlegs especially those that claim to be domestic remember only Herb Alpert Presents is THE ONLY AUTHORIZED LABEL for All things Alpert ( New titles and Reissues) as well as left over Shout factory and Older A&M issues there have been many discussions here concerning the bootlegs

  12. It's one of the songs that SHOULD have been on LOST TREASURES.
