Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce the release of Trini Lopez's The Rare Reprise Singles, a 24-track compilation that puts together all of the non-LP tracks that Lopez recorded for Reprise Records from 1962–1970.
Trinidad López III was born in Dallas, TX on May 15, 1937 and at the tender age of 15, he formed his first band, The Big Beats. Trini played guitar and his repertoire consisted of Mexican folk songs, rhythm and blues hits and rock ’n roll favorites.
Hear many of these songs for the first time on CD, including the studio version of “A-Me-Ri-Ca,” “The Bramble Bush” (from the MGM Production The Dirty Dozen which Trini starred in) and a cover of Randy Newman’s “Love Story,” produced by Bob Gaudio of The Four Seasons.
With liner notes from former Warner Bros. scribe Gene Sculatti, photos and ephemera from Trini’s career with Reprise, this is the ultimate Trini Lopez rarities collection!
