''Trini Lopez at PJ's'' made it to #2 on the Billboard charts and stayed in the Top 40 for over a year. The album included the chart-topping ''If I Had a Hammer'' which reached number one in 36 countries and was a radio favorite for many years. The hit single sold more than 4 million copies and the album sold over a million and was awarded a gold record.
''TRINI AT PJ'S STANDS THE TEST OF TIME...Wonderful songs, brilliantly performed.''
