Trini Lopez: Rock On (LP)

(Volk Records) 18 tracks - Great compilation of his Rockers he did in the 1950s and 1960s

We have always felt that the only thing that matters is that the artists and performers have the ability to entertain you. We recorded Trini Lopez when no one else knew of him. We knew in our hearts that he had a feeling in his singing that would appeal to you. Unfortunately, after trying with him for twenty-four record sides, we were forced to tell him to look for greener pastures. knowing that the day would come when Trini would become a star. 'This day has arrived'. He is looked upon today as one of the outstanding young performers.

We are proud to bring this album to your attention. It consists of twelve teen-age love songs. We did not bring this out by just throwing it together. We analyzed each and every one of the twelve songs as to whether or not the present day buyers would like these songs. It was the unanimous opinion of everyone connected with King Records that these twelve sides were top drawer. To say it another way. these twelve sides are for the present day market.
I am sure that after you hear them. you will agree with me that Trini Lopez is destined to be one of the outstanding artists of this present day.

This is the young man who in the brief time of four years has skyrocketed from the leader of a Rock and Roll Combo in Dallas. Texas to become the hottest new recording find of the year. Trini Lopez's story reads like Horatio Alger. Born in Dallas. Texas. he went through high school there and got his start by forming a high school combo. playing dances in and around the area and upon graduation from high school in 1958 picked up jobs where and when he could find them. Wishing to get on records and unable to interest any of the large companies. he recorded in a Dallas studio himself and along with a friend issued his first record 'Rock On', which is included in this album. The record became an overnight sensation in Texas and came to the attention of the executives of King Records. King made arrangements to take over the record and proceeded to sign Trini to a long term recording contract. His hits on King and his tremendous personality and talent opened the door to stardom and Trini soon found himself appearing on the top Rock and Roll show's along with other top name recording artists. One of his tours took him to California.

Falling in love with Hollywood. Trini decided that this is where his future would be. His first appearance on a steady engagement in Los Angeles was at Ye Little Club where he appeared with Joanie Sommers. He went in on a brief two-week contract but public acceptance and demand extended this to over a year. His next big break came when he was signed as one of the leading acts to appear at Hollyv,,00d's world famous P.J.'s, which has become a show case for musicOorn.s best talent. It was while at P.J.'s that his big album broke and skyrocketed him into worldwide prominence.
Here are 18 songs recorded by Tnni Lopez in Cincinnati. Ohio. during his appearance in that city while making recordings for King Records and appearing at teen record hops sponsored by the city's top disc jockeys. Its a real swinging thing. The live performance aspect creates a tremendous amount of excitement and this enthusiasm is quite evident in Trini's performance. He responds with the vitality of his young years and puts on a superb performance.

Trini Lopez

Trini Lopez was born Trinidad López III on May 15, 1937 in Dallas, Texas. His father, Trinidad López II, worked as an actor and singer and taught him how to play the guitar while Trini was growing up in poverty with four sisters and a brother. He attended Dallas Elementary School and later N.R. Cro- zier Technical High School which he soon had to quit for work as his family needed financial support. After working as a busker on Dallas’ streets for a time, Lopez formed his own band and started to play clubs in Texas and New Mexico. At a gig in Wichita Falls, Trini met deejay Snuff Garrett, who introduced Trini to Buddy Holly. Through Holly, Trini met Hol- ly’s producer Norman Petty, which resulted only in a jam ses- sion at Petty’s Clovis studio (a dispute between Trini and his band at Petty’s studio resulted in Lopez not waxing any vo- cals; the band adopted the name of The Big Beats and cut several 45s for Columbia).

Trini started to write and perform his own songs, which came to the attention of John F. Sheffield, who was looking for artists he could record on his brand new label Volk Records, which he had established in June of ’58. He found Lopez and his band in a Dallas nightclub. Volk 101, The Right To Rock b/w Just Once More, was issued in August of 1958 and was the first release for both, artist and label. Sheffield worked hard to promote the record, managing to get a pop record review in the September 1, 1958 issue of ‘Billboard’ maga- zine. This attracted the interest of King Records in Cincinnati, Ohio; its owner Syd Nathan offered Lopez a three-year re- cording contract. Trini’s first King release came in January 1959.

Although Lopez made a slew of recordings for King, he didn’t score a hit and left when his contract ran out. Popular music was changing by then, and Trini Lopez started to concentrate on his folk music roots. Lopez signed a con- tract with Reprise Records in early 1963. It didn’t take long for Trini Lopez to sail up the charts with the help of producer Don Costa; his revival of Pete Seeger and Lee Hays’ If I Had A Hammer soared to #3 on ‘Billboard’s’ Hot 100 during the summer of 1963. Lopez placed thirteen Hot 100 hits in ‘Bill- board’ between 1963 and 1968. His LP ‘Trini Lopez at PJ’s’ went all the way to #2 on ‘Billboard’s’ pop album charts and became his best selling album. Lopez’s long stint with Re- prise Records lasted until 1970. Trini Lopez soon wanted a second string to his bow. He started acting in movie and TV roles, and his mentor was singer, actor, and founder of Reprise Records, Frank Sinatra. Lopez...
