Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass helped define the sound of the 1960s, from the infectious “Spanish Flea” to the number one hit “This Guy’s in Love with You”.
Their distinctive output added fun and style to the era, as well as plaintive romance, with Herb’s trumpet leading the band.
Herb Alpert was a vital part of 1960s pop culture, particularly in America, with his music being used for TV shows, such as “Whipped Cream” on “The Dating Game”, and referenced in the spy comedy series “Get Smart” with Barbara Feldon.
When Burt Bacharach wrote the soundtrack for the 1967 spy spoof “Casino Royale”, it was the unique sound of Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass that set the tone in the title music for the comedy to come.
David Prowse made his film debut in “Casino Royale” as Frankenstein’s monster, foreshadowing his Hammer horror film “Horror of Frankenstein” in 1970.
“Casino Royale” had its Royal World Premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square on the 13th of April 1967, attended by Princess Alexandra.
(Coincidentally, Herb Alpert is married to Lani Hall, the singer of the title theme for another unofficial James Bond film, “Never Say Never Again” with Sean Connery & Barbara Carrera.)
