Is the new “Whipped Cream” better than the old?

Those of us wondering about the sound quality of the new Tijuana Brass reissues have some great news: the newly remastered Whipped Cream & Other Delights is a clear improvement over the Shout!Factory release from a decade ago.  Listeners are greeted with a cleaner, more natural sound with better extension at the higher and lower ends of the frequency range.

So far, we have forum member feedback only for the CD version, but we will have a complete review of the vinyl version once our review copy finally arrives.  We anticipate the whole series of reissues will be a winner. Stay tuned!

And in a fitting bit of trivia: the album’s lead-off track, “A Taste of Honey,” peaked at No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 this week in 1965.  50 years later, the track is sounding better than ever!
