Happy Love Day

In celebration of Valentine's Day, we have two "love album" selections for you and your sweetheart's listening pleasure.

First is the aptly-titled LP "The Love Album" by Trini Lopez, an American singer of Mexican descent who was very popular in the 1960s for his "Latinized" versions of American pop hits, and still performs today.


Second, we have selections from "Open Fire, Two Guitars" by Johnny Mathis, an icon in the realm of "romantic" music. I say "selections from" because this LP was not in the best condition; as a result, a few tracks were unplayable. The upside is that it's still a bit "crackly", so it's perfect if you have a fireplace to sit in front of with your sweetie, and let the album crackles complement the fireplace crackles.
