Whipped Cream & Other Delights, by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, called "Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass" for this album, is the band's arguably most popular release. This album saw the band nearly abandoning its Mexican-themed music, featuring mostly instrumental arrangements of popular songs, and also generating some major pop hits for the first time since The Lonely Bull. One "tradition" of the early Brass was to include a number rendered in "strip-tease" fashion, and this album's entry for that style was Love Potion No. 9. Whipped Cream & Other Delights sold over 6 million copies in the United States and the album cover alone is considered a classic pop culture icon. It featured model Dolores Erickson wearing chiffon and shaving cream. The picture was taken at a time when Erickson was three months pregnant. The album cover was so popular with Alpert fans that, during concerts, when about to play the song Whipped Cream, Alpert would tell the audience, "Sorry, we can't play the cover for you!" Singles taken from the album included A Taste of Honey, Whipped Cream and Lollipops and Roses. The latter two of these were eventually featured on the ABC-TV series The Dating Game: Whipped Cream as the intro to the bachelorette, and Lollipops and Roses as the theme used when the bachelor(ette) learned about the person chosen for the date.
