Song #457: "A Taste of Honey"--Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass (1965)

A version of a song more popular than The Beatles?  Yes, that happened, as Herb and his gang covered this song in 1965, and when released as a single, it charted very well.

My first exposure to it was when WRVA would use it, and many other instrumentals, to time up to news at the top of the hour in the 1970's.

Love me some Herb Alpert, so we'll see him again, and maybe again, as the countdown continues. :)
