Trini Lopez recorded a "comeback" album of sorts, probably right around the time you talked to him, Phil.
It was produced by Ron Dante, the voice of The Archies and a long-time Friend of Forgotten Hits. (In fact, they even recut The Archies' #1 Hit "Sugar, Sugar" ... IN SPANISH!!!)
Trini seems like a genuinely nice guy. (I never had the opportunity to talk to him ... but he always seemed very appreciative of his success ... and loved his fans as much as they loved him.) kk
