This compilation comprises all of Trini Lopez's "pre-fame" studio recordings between 1958-62, for the Volk, King and DRA labels. The first time that this entire body of work has been compiled together.

When Trini Lopez broke through internationally in 1963 with "If I Had a Hammer" and its parent LP 'Live at PJ's', he was hailed as an overnight success. However, he was already in his mid-20s, had been cutting R&R, Tex-Mex and Country records since 1958, and had already enjoyed regional hits with sides like "The Right to Rock", "Rock On", "Don't Let Your Sweet Love Die" and "Jeanie Marie".

Another of these early sides, "Sinner Not a Saint", bubbled under the Top 100 following its reissue in 1964. The King Records sides appear here exactly as they were originally released, without the fake audience applause, which was later overdubbed in an effort to cash in on his 'Live at PJ's' success.
