Album of the Day
More Trini Lopez At PJ's (Live)
Trini Lopez first started making music in Dallas in the late 1950s; fast-forward a few years and he'd made his way to Los Angeles and a residency at the P.J.'s club (later known as the Starwood). After Frank Sinatra signed him to his Reprise label, Lopez recorded his 1963 debut at the popular West Hollywood night spot, and the album spawned a million-selling single. To capitalize on that success, MORE TRINI LOPEZ AT P.J.'S followed later that year and nearly reached the Top 10. Playing a great mix of material including folk-pop (“Go Into The Mountains”), Latin (“Corazon De Melon”) and rock 'n' roll (“Kansas City”), Trini had the audience in the palm of his hand and the excitement is audible in this well-recorded live set. The singer turns 80 today, and we'll wish him a very happy birthday with MORE TRINI LOPEZ AT P.J.'S.
