Released by A&M Records in April 1965, this album by Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass is now an icon of Americana. The sultry cover photo of an otherwise nude Dolores Erickson, covered up to her chest in whipped cream and holding a long-stemmed rose, has been repeatedly imitated and parodied over the years, proving that the album's cover has remained much more memorable than any of its songs. In fact, it's even arguable that were it not for its seductive cover, Whipped Cream & Other Delights would probably not have enjoyed its 189 weeks on the Billboard record charts, including eight weeks at Number One.
Dolores, who was pregnant during the photo shoot, was actually covered in shaving cream, since whipped cream would melt under the heat of the photography lights.
