Sinner Not a Saint: Complete King Rec 1959 - 1961 [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
Digitally remastered collection of pre-fame recordings from the acclaimed singer and entertainer. In 1963, Trini Lopez scored one of the biggest and most played hits of the decade, with his version of 'If I Had a Hammer'. It turned him into a star almost overnight, and was the foundation for his lengthy and successful career as a singer and actor. Here's how Trini Lopez sounded before he had that hammer. He made his first record six years before in his home state of Texas. He'd recorded frequently, but with little chart success. Sinner Not a Saint collects up almost all of the tracks that he cut while on the road to stardom, between 1958 and 1962. Ace. 2011.
