The Tri-Disc label was related to the HiFi/Arvee labels owned by Richard Vaughn, although we know of
no direct ownership link. The one album on Tri-Disc, by the Olympics, was produced by Fred Smith, who
did A&R for Arvee, and featured songs written by Smith and Cliff Goldsmith, the other Arvee A&R man.
Tri-Disc may have been a Fred Smith-Cliff Goldsmith spinoff of Arvee. In any case, the relationship
between the two labels was apparently friendly, since the liner notes on the back of Tri-Disc 1001
essentially advertise the three Arvee Olympics albums! The address for Tri-Disc was 8831 Sunset Blvd.,
Suite 202, Los Angeles 69, California (Phone OL5-5140). According to the movable pasteover
mono/stereo cover on LP 1001, it was issued in both mono and stereo, but we've never come across a
stereo version (and precious few copies even in mono).
|The Tri-Disc label was red with black print, with "TRI DISC" in block letters curving around the top of the label, with a record with a triangle in it directly above the center hole between the "TRI" and the "DISC."|
