Once you get beyond the campfire kitsch of "If I Had A Hammer" you'll discover that Trini Lopez was one groovy folker. "Sinner Not A Saint" immediately comes to mind, but lately I've been spinning this uplifting breakup single from 1966.
All this godforsaken summer heat has started influencing what music goes on my turntable. Look for more calypso, reggae and other breezy island songs in posts to come. In the meantime enjoy these two groovier examples from Mr.Trinidad Lopez.
