My last post reminded me of finding Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass’ Whipped Cream and Other Delights in a bargain bin in an Oxfam shop in the Lake District. I bought it purely because of the cover, thinking that even if it was awful, I could at least frame it to decorate my room.
It’s a cover that has been parodied probably hundreds of times and Christian Marklay’s collection of Whipped Cream covers and parody covers has even been exhibited at Exit Art in New York.
Marklay’s article on the Whipped Cream cover can be seen here:
As it happens, it’s also a great album.
