The Three Bells
Three Bells Swingin'

The Three Bells were twins Carol and Sue Bell, and their sister Joan Bell. This threesome recorded a few singles on Pye and Columbia, and then changed their name to the Satin Bells , releasing records on Pye, Decca, and CBS.

As the Three Bells, they took on Goffin and King's "Softly in the Night" (which the Cookies first recorded). As the Satin Bells, they covered France Gall's "Da di da da," but in a somewhat harsher manner. Though they were never quite as successful as they hoped to be, the three blonde sisters modelled for numerous British fashion magazines, and even appeared in a sixties film called "The Ghost Goes Gear."

The Three Bells Profile

"Jean Bell, and twins Carol and Sue Bell were a top girl group in Britain during the mid sixties, recording for Pye, Columbia, Decca, and CBS labels, and having a few hits a long the way. The group is best recalled for "Softly In The Night," a Goffin/King ditty orginally done by the Cookies, "Da Di Da Da," also a hit for France Gall, and "He Doesn't Love Me," also recorded by the Breakaways..." >>>presented by the Girl Group Chronicles
