We try so hard to be careful..."seems to me I read somewhere"...turns out to be Herb himself.
I have a copy (non-PS) but it's mashed from DJ-ing so it sounds like an Alka Seltzer with Herb Alpert trapped inside it. It's on the wants list for sure...Captain Bacardi said:
It is not necessarily the mix that makes the 45 versions sound sometimes better than the album versions, but it is the record speed itself. The 45rpm speed was superior in many ways to 33rpm. The faster speed allowed higher levels and consequently a more pronounced bass. Also, when mastered correctly, the 45's had the capability of higher fidelity.Captain Bacardi said:I really like the 45 mix of this song. There's much more bottom to it than the album version.
Man, after reading that all I wanna do is hear it!Captain Bacardi said:Last year Tony did a wonderful interview for the BBC with Herb & Jerry. You can read about it at:
Dave seems a bit delusional here as neither SOLID BRASS nor any other compilation that I'm aware of contains the song "Treasure Of San Miguel", fine song though it is.Dave said:OK, so now I feel won-over by the Roger Nichols-written "Treasure Of San Miguel"... Still don't have Sounds Like..., yet, but my Solid Brass comp serves it up well enough...
Awwww, it is actually, YouTube, Online, where I play it; I meant Solid Brass is where I play "Wade In The Water" & "Casino Royale", already mentioned...Harry said:Dave seems a bit delusional here as neither SOLID BRASS nor any other compilation that I'm aware of contains the song "Treasure Of San Miguel", fine song though it is.Dave said:OK, so now I feel won-over by the Roger Nichols-written "Treasure Of San Miguel"... / ...my Solid Brass comp serves it up well enough...
And more A&M goodies from the stereo & computer (though I gotta remember where I hear what) to raise the young 'un on, we need...!Harry said:It must be all those late night awakenings by the new young 'un...
Actually Harry has prevented someone from spending huge $ for a compilation that does NOT contain the track in discussion ("Treasure of San Miguel"). Dave's post implied it could be found on the Solid Brass comp which in fact does NOT include that track. Harry's just trying to keep Dave coherent and help the less aware fans inadvertantly spend unnecessary $ on a CD for a track that CD does NOT contain. And I didn't see Harry calling anyone names -- Dave's posts routinely require two or three reads to understand what he's saying.jukeboxexpress said:Aw, c'mon Harry. Don't be so hard on the guy and call names. Dave has just given us a place to find the track.
That's correct. It is not "name-calling". The word "delusional" was used as an adjective in referring to Dave's erroneous information. Dave's a longtime member here, and I felt I could get away with a little good-natured ribbing, since he just had his first child recently.jukeboxexpress said:Hmmm. Saying someone is delusional is NOT name calling? OK. Whatever.
And that would be appropriate, given your relative "new" status to this group.I would have just said that Dave was mistaken, if I knew him to be in error.
Always a goal.It's "caveat emptor" out there and if a person doesn't do their research before they buy, they may not get what they planned for. No problem understanding Harry with just one read, he was direct and to the point.
