Although known primarily for his trumpet playing as the leader of the Tijuana Brass, Alpert sang lead vocals on this solo recording, arranged by Bacharach. Alpert originally sang “This Guy’s in Love with You” on a 1968 television special (The Beat of the Brass). In response to numerous viewer telephone calls, the song was released as a single and reached #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in June of that year, remaining in the top position for four weeks. It was not only Alpert’s first #1 record, but it was also the first #1 record for his A&M record label. The song also spent an impressive ten weeks at #1 on the adult contemporary chart, which at the time was referred to as the “Easy Listening” chart.
