A Little Whipped Cream Goes A Long Way For Herb Alpert

Whipped Cream and Other Delights – Herb Albert’s Tijuana Brass

.

Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass’ fourth album, and arguably their best, Whipped Cream & Other Delights sold over 6 million copies in the United States and went to the number 1 position on the Billboard Chart in November 1965 being replaced by the Beatles’ Rubber Soul in January 1966.

This record album cover is a perennial favorite among album cover collectors, considered a pop culture icon and one of the sexiest album covers of all-time. Dolores Erickson, 28 years old at the time, was the attractive female model shown in the album cover photograph wearing only chiffon and shaving cream. Ironically, Miss Erickson was three months pregnant when then photographed by photographer, Jerry Whorf. Miss Erickson also appeared on seventeen other album covers including Nate King Cole’s The Touch of Your Lips, The Sandpipers’ Guantanamera, and Cy Coleman’s Piano Witchcraft.
