Lost Treasures: Herb Alpert & the TJB – “Mexican Road Race”


Mexican Road Race” was the ‘B-side’ of “Wade In The Water” released as a single in March 1967.  The A-side didn’t exactly connect with radio programmers, but some US & Canadian MOR & easy-listening stations began playing the ‘B-side’ instead.  A&M issued a limited stereo pressing (the label’s first) of “Promo Copies” with both sides stamped as the ‘A-side’.  Enjoy the warm sunshine while it’s here, and start your weekend with the Tijuana Brass!  Happy Friday!
