It's a surf tribute to Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. Herpa Albert as you probably already know was the "A" in A&M Records.

I left you the Orchids album because they are a great band that is often forgotten & this must be corrected. Also it is very timely with the recent release of the documentary "My Secret World" about the Sarah Records label which has become a bit legendary these days. Just try and buy copies of their early 7" singles and you will see how collectible they have become (the Sea Urchins "Pristine Christine" single sells for several hundred dollars). The Orchids did reform and are still releasing great albums. Also I thought you would enjoy the Ken and Barbie song.

There is always a story behind everything I leave you as you probably already figured. The Autumn Stones may be coming to Ottawa this summer and I just wanted to help the band out. I also was trying to get the band to do a cover of a song by The Sound but that hasn't worked out yet. They have 2 albums our and I will get you a copy of their first album later.

Michele, The song is called "A Living Ken & Barbie" and maybe tic will play it next week.
