Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass doing a cover of a Beatles cover...


A Taste Of Honey


Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass A Taste of Honey Video 1966

1966


Far out video!  I remember seeing it when it was first broadcast on TV.  I couldn't believe it!  I think The Beatles borrowed some concepts here for Magical Mystery Tour.

Wow! Another reminder of why I adore the 60s so much. Accept no substitute, that was fantastic.

The roving camera on the beach idea, where people pass by in front of the subject (the Courier and Aunt Jessie in MMT / the gaggle of reporters in CUIYC.....am I making sense?) was almost entirely lifted from the final scene of the (brilliant, seriously!) Dave Clark Five film 'Catch Us If You Can'.

This clip, like Herb himself, seems to completely embody the James Bond style/Sunday Colour Supplements of the day, I can't believe he would have gone down too well with the hippies.

I agree.  There was nothing like the 60s.

Thinking about the Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass Taste Of Honey video a bit more, indeed The Beatles brought their instruments to various locales a year before in Help!  We saw them on the beach doing Another Girl, on the Salisbury Plain doing I Need You and The Night Before, and they hauled a grand piano onto the ski slopes to do Ticket To Ride...






Herb Alpert hauled a grand piano onto the beach a year later...





...an orchestra too!

Johnny Cash - In My Life is very moving.

Agreed. Perfect choice that reflected the place he was at with his life at the time.

Also, The Beach Boys' Tell Me Why, I Should've Known Better and You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (from the Party album) deserve a mention. Nothing earth-shattering, but genuine, nice covers that show just how much The Beach Boys loved the songs of one of their main musical rivals.
