Trini Lopez was HUGE in the ’60s

22 Jul

It’s hard for some of you to believe today, but Trini Lopez had a massive following in the 1960’s. He performed what most would call folk music. But Trini plugged in his guitar and made folk music swing. Peter, Paul and Mary’s “If I had a Hammer” (watch the clip above) was probably his biggest hit.

I have this LP at home — a good one!

The guy was cool and even made a brief splash in Hollywood in the classic wartime flick “The Dirty Dozen.” I have included the movie’s original trailer below. If you haven’t seen it by now … well, see it … and that’s an order!
