I enjoy listening to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. In the mid ’60s my parents bought one of Herb’s albums, ‘South of the Border’. The seed was planted, decades later growing so that I now have most of the original vinyl LPs. Those albums, selling well at the time, were categorized as pop, MOR or easy-listening, but now in the 21st century I wonder what term(s) best describe them.
And by the way, in a box of candy I received as a gift at work from one of our vendors was a pack of Teaberry chewing gum. (if you are at all familiar with Herb Alpert you’ll understand)
