Album Remarks & Appraisals:
On September 9, legendary jazz musician Herb Alpert will re-release 24 classic albums from his illustrious catalog. The albums were remastered from the original analog tape mixes by Grammy-winning mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, who was the mastering engineer on many of the Tijuana Brass and Alpert albums. All releases, several of which have been out of print for a number of years (in Europe, some have not been available in over 30 years!), will be presented with their original artwork, making this collection must-have for the Herb Alpert fan!
Audio Remasterer: Bernie Grundman.

Herb Alpert tried for another solo vocal hit with "To Wait for Love," but "This Guy's in Love With You" proved a fluke in his career. Nevertheless, he put "To Wait for Love" and his next singing single, "Without Her," on this album, along with instrumentals like "Zazueira," so although Warm managed to become the group's 12th gold album, it did not match the success of its 11 predecessors. ~ William Ruhlmann
