ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Tridels are a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based Doo Wop group, originally consisting of Marc, Larry, and Mike. The trio was formed in 1962 when they were each 18 years of age. Their first recordings "Land of Love" and "The Image of My Love" were produced and written in 1964 by future radio and TV star Gene Arnold, under the name of Rick Roman,and recorded at San-Dee Worldwide Limited Records in Philadelphia. The group recorded over 35 original compositions during their nine year career , and wrote and recorded for commercials and two documentary films in the 1960s including one by Emmy-Award winning producer Martin Spinelli.
With the release of their first single, “Land of Love” in August of 1964, The Tridels began a whirlwind touring schedule of record hops, interviews, radio shows and appearances in the Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware tri-state area. Cashbox Magazine (August 15, 1964) liked both sides of the release rating “Land of Love” with a B+ calling it “an inviting lindy with old R&R sound”, and the flipside, “Image of My Love”, a B , calling it an “uptempo ditty”. As Robert Bosco stated in his December 2011 article about The Tridels for Echoes of the Past magazine, “ a B+ rating for an untested new act was nothing short of sensational”. Philadelphia area radio stations began playing “Land of Love” exclusively and The Tridels were appearing at Philadelphia’s AM giant, WIBG’s record hops throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania three to four times a week for popular WIBBAGE deejays, Hy Lit, Joe Niagara, Jerry Stevens, Larry Justice, and Don L. Brink. On the August 24, 1964 issue of the WIBG Top 99 Survey, The Tridels and “Land of Love” were listed as the WIBBAGE Sureshot of the Week. Bosco added “superstation WIBG, the AM giant in the area, juiced the cause by having stalwart jocks …pound their rising WIBBAGE Sureshot day after night”.
When the record broke in the Midwest, the group joined the "Caravan of Stars" tour in the summer of 1964 and toured four states and Canada promoting the release. The Beatles explosion in 1964 dampened prospects for most American releases that year, but the Tridels continued to perform until 1965, when Larry was drafted. Helene joined the Tridels in 1965 and they continued to entertain in clubs and events throughout the tri-state area for six more years concentrating on recording original material.
The Tridels disbanded in 1971. Today, "Land of Love" and "Image of My Love" are featured in several compilation albums and CDs being sold on the internet by British and German companies. The song became a cult classic in northern England and in Germany and several European Doo Wop sites on the internet, like Whitedoowopcollector.com and doowop.blogg.org feature The Tridels on their site.
In 2010, the original members re-united for the first time in 47 years. As a tribute to the group’s musical legacy, this double CD, Back to Life , an anthology of the Tridels’ music and memories, was released. All proceeds from the sale of the CD are donated to Pennies in Action, in support of cancer research.
