The Beat of the Brass was the tenth album release by the popular 1960s instrumental group Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. The album was released on the heels of a television special by the same title (telecast April 22, 1968 over CBS). Tom Mankiewicz, who wrote the special, also provided liner notes for the album as well.

It includes Alpert's only major vocal hit, "This Guy's In Love With You", which became an overnight success due to its inclusion during the special, in a sequence featuring Herb and his (first) wife, Sharon.

The album was reissued by Shout! Factory on August 16, 2005. - Wikipedia
