THE NEW PHOENIX - 'Give To Me Your Love'/'Thanks' (World Pacific 77884) 1967
The Hard Times either changed their name to the more psychedelic The New Phoenix or by the time of recording this song in October 1967 only singer Rudy Romero remained.
'Give To Me Your Love' is a stunning flower pop assault on the senses with some lovely harmonies and a memorable melody. Mama Cass Elliot produced and it's quite clear that she brought along some of the Mamas & The Papas magic dust to the sessions.
The group did not have another song ready to record so an instrumental version named 'Thanks' was tagged on the B-Side.
