A&M Records 50th Anniversary Collection
I just heard an awesome interview of Herb Alpert on NPR this morning about the creation of A&M Records. A&M was started in a garage by two friends (one being Herb) who wanted to create a music label catered to musicians and allowed creativity to reign supreme. With a successful and eclectic early roster that included Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass Band, Sergio Mendes, Peter Frampton, The Carpenters, and Cat Stevens to name a few, the label grew and went on to find and sign some more amazing bands like The Human League, The Police, Squeeze, STYX, and so many more. Anyway, a few months back A&M released a 50th Anniversary mini-box set and it’s awesome … I want it.—CC
