“We went to Caesar’s Palace to catch the Tom Jones supper show. Another funny man, Pat Henry opened the show, followed by a trio of singers, two white girls and a pretty black one. I believe they were called ‘The Rock Flowers.’ Whatever their names, the girls were good. As for Tom Jones, he lived up to expectations.” – Hazel Garland, Pittsburgh Courier, May 20, 1972
