On January 1st, 1968 the Black Diamonds became Tymepiece. In August 1968, the band appeared on two simultaneous singles. As Tymepiece, they issued "Bird In The Tree" and producer Pat Aulton also set them up to record a version of The Tokens’ old standard "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" but under the moniker of Love Machine. “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” was a national top 40 (#18) hit - and its “B” side, the eccentric “Lonely Hearts Club Christmas Club Party” has become something of a cult-track - a 12" extended Tom Mix of it is available at DOWNLOAD NO.131.
