Due March 7 via Shout Factory, "Re-Whipped" will also include five remixes from project producer Anthony Marinelli, two of which feature Ozomatli. In addition, Alpert re-recorded a handful of his famed trumpet solos for use on the album.
The release is part of an ongoing series of Alpert reissues that began last year. "It has been wonderful," Alpert told Billboard in late 2004 about the journey back in time. "It caught me off guard. I try not to live in the past, [but] when I heard these tapes, I just felt it would be nice for people to be able to experience it."
Albert & the Tijuana Brass spent 32 weeks at No. 1 between 1962 and 1968 and scored a slew of pop hits, including "This Guy's in Love With You" and "A Taste of Honey." As previously reported, Alpert and A&M Records co-founding partner Jerry Moss will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award in March at the 2006 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York.
