1 in stock


Offered for sale is a still sealed mono pressing of the 1966 LP SRO by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

About this copy: This copy of SRO is an original U.S. sealed mono pressing on the A&M label.

As the album is still sealed, the disc is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is intact except for a 3″x3″ missing section in the upper left hand corner.  There’s a bit of cover wear on the corner there.  There is a punch hole in the cover in the upper left hand corner.

A nice copy of an LP that’s rather scarce in mono, as it was only available for about 18 months before being deleted.

Background: SRO was the seventh album by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and it performed about as well as most of its predecessors, reaching #2 on the U.S. album charts, helped by three singles: “The Work Song,” “Flamingo,” and “Mame.”

Allmusic.com gave SRO a 3 star review:

By late 1966, it seemed as if every TV commercial and every pop arranger had latched onto the Herb Alpert “Ameriachi” sound — at which point the resourceful originator of that sound began to pare it down and loosen it up a bit. S.R.O. (Standing Room Only), referring to the Tijuana Brass’ string of sold-out concerts, is an accurate title, for this LP is about a seven-piece band loaded with experienced jazzers who groove and swing together to a greater degree than on their previous albums. Sure, the arrangements are very tightly knit and don’t allow much room for spontaneity, but they still sound fresh and uninhibited, and Alpert often allows the flavor of jazz to come through more clearly.
