Released in 1978, the Herb Alpert/Hugh Masekela album brought an entirely new sound to Alpert’s worldwide fans–a mix of funk, jazz and African stylings that was unlike anything he had ever recorded previously. One track that intrigued us was “Lobo,” penned by the great Brazilian composer Edu Lobo, whose tunes were featured on many A&M albums throughout the 60s and 70s. “Lobo” is originally the title track to Lobo’s 1976 album Limite das Aguas. Here it is!
Originals is a series of featured original or hit recordings which Herb Alpert would cover on his solo or Tijuana Brass albums. From the popular to the obscure, we’re digging to find you the best!
