Love that single!


Herb did a mighty fine version of it as well. :wink: And a good reminder to find more of Toussaint's own recordings! Why mess with a good thing? Herb added some embellishments to what already was a fine arrangement of the tune. Pretty cool find!

Excellent and yes this is a nice huge find and it is exactly the way the song was originally done and Herb's version is true to this original version I would say both records set the standard for how this song should basically be played by anyone who would want to do covers in the future

Very interesting....I never heard this song performed by anyone other than Herb Alpert.

Whipped Cream has always been one of my favorite Tijuana Brass songs.

I wasn't able to find anything on CD, but was able to stream a brief compilation by The Stokes and it is every bit as enjoyable as this track. It all has a 60s NOLA vibe, and instrumental like this track. Neat stuff!

I was able to stream that on Tidal this morning.

The track is also on a two-CD Allen Toussaint compilation featuring his hits and productionsThere's a "highlights" version of this compilation on vinyl I'm picking up from Collector's Choice (through Discogs, where they have it listed $9 cheaper than on their site...go figure).

I'm actually listening to Toussaint's final album, American Tunes, as I work around here today. :)
