"The Three Bells" - The Browns

OK, more 50's (a toughie): This sibling country/folk trio from Pine Bluff, Arkansas helped create and define the "Nashville Chrome" sound. Their biggest hit was an English adaptation of a '45 Gilles/Herrand French tune, "Les Trois Cloches" (hint, hint!), a '52-'53 hit for Edith Piaf. Grammy-nominated in '59 - #1 Billboard Hot 100 and Country and #10 R&B. Song? Alternate title(s)? Group?

Yesterday's answer: "Let's Go Trippin'" by Dick Dale and The Del-Tones. The title comes from Dick's fans' mantra on the way to seeing him live, "let's go trippin' to see Dick Dale!". Heard him on NPR on Sat.
