TRINI LOPEZ - SINNER NOT A SAINT


This is one of those songs that for many years I would hear it and think "yeah, cool but I don't really need to own it". Right?

THEN, I heard my mate Dean spin it in London and I realized yes, I most certainly DO!

Somewhat unexpected from Trini, but then again perfectly reasonable. Trini has lots of uptempo gems in his ouvre (such as his versions of "Jailer Bring Me Water" and "Unchain My Heart" for instance), although with out a doubt this is the hottest and most soulful side ever cut by this ultra cool fella. I should also mention that this track was written by Shel Talmy shortly before he moved to the UK and began his brilliant production streak (Kinks, The Who, Creation, etc) who also allegedly had to do some arm twisting to convince Trini to cut this track.

from 1963...
