Better Music, but What About the Videos?

11 Jun

The ’60s (that’s the 1960’s for you oldtimers) was a great decade for music. One of the best in my humble opinion. Was it all the drugs people were taking or were songwriters and performers just inspired by the great cultural changes taking place at the time? Who knows? I do know the whole concept of the music video was very much a work in progress in the ’60s. Case in point, the Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass video clip you are about to enjoy. Don’t get me wrong. I think Herb and the boys are terrific. I own all of the LPs on vinyl — seriously. And old Herb certainly made a ton of dough during that time. But the group’s attempts at videos were, well, not quite so succesful. Perhaps thankfully, this is one of the few that remain. Be sure to check out Herb’s groovy footwear. And yes, that is the same song you heard many times on “The Dating Game.”

***Editor’s Note: I guess cheese and whipped cream is not such a good mix!
