Welcome to Trini Country

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Adams
Trini Lopez is one eclectic guy. Starting out as a would-be teen idol before becoming a purveyor of folk hits and oldies in the raucous, stripped-down style that brought him fame, Lopez further added to his melting pot of styles by cutting this country album in 1968.

Trini Lopez is one eclectic guy.

On Welcome to Trini Country, Lopez mostly covers recent country hits and classics like "Flowers on the Wall," "Crazy Arms," and "Devil Woman," sticking to a recognizably country sound that, on "Good Old Mountain Dew," could even pass for bluegrass. Kudos to Lopez for cutting "Shanghied," an excellent Webb Pierce B-side that never became a hit for anyone.
