- Release Date:8/28/2012
2012 three CD collection. It's an archetypal story of the modern record business: two guys with a dream running their nascent label out of a West Hollywood garage in the summer of 1962. The label quickly gains momentum and eventually becomes one of the most important record companies the world has ever seen. The two guys were Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss, the 'A' and the 'M' in A&M Records. By the way, it was Alpert's garage and that first hit was the Lonely Bull, performed by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. And this year the two record men and UMe are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their label. Curated by Alpert & Moss, the nearly 60 tracks on this release perfectly illustrate what a potent effect the legendary label is still having on contemporary popular music. 2012.
