The Brass Ring was a short-lived, brassy instrumental pop group led by saxophonist-arranger Phil Bodner. The Brass Ring had two Top 40 hits, "The Phoenix Love Theme (Senza Fine)" (1966) and "The Dis-Advantages Of You" (1967), plus one minor hit in 1966 with "Lara's Theme (from Dr. Zhivago)." "The Dis-Advantages of You," in which a wordless female chorus can be heard throughout, was made famous by a series of funny Benson and Hedges commercials that aired in the late 1960s before cigarette advertising on TV was permanently banned.
