Alpert had already formed his own label, Carnival Records, with partner Jerry Moss, and had released a vocal solo single as Dore Alpert; he used this label, later renamed A&M, to release the new single.
Having released "Bull" with the name "Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass," he set about finding musicians for his fictional band.
