Greatest Hits is a 1970 album by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. This was the group's first compilation album with all selections coming from their first five albums. The album was released a few months after Alpert disbanded the group and eventually certified Gold in the spring of 1971.
Still, since the CDs of three of the five albums are currently out of print, this can serve as a decent, if brief, overview of the development of Herb Alpert's vehicle from its clever ethnic novelty beginnings into a cosmopolitan septet that could actually bridge the yawning generation gap of the 1960s.
