The Classiest Group from the 60's & 70's

This album has excellent renditions of their masterpieces - well known and more obscure. The Bacharach-like "The Girl's Song" is a particular standout. Not to mention Love's Lines, Angles & Rhymes, and the popular One Less Bell, Puppet Man, Stoned Soul and others. I forgot how much I missed this group!

The Ultimate 5th Dimension

Wonderful collection of hits and album favorites from one of the most overlooked groups of the groove/soft R&B era. If you grew up watching the Apollo missions and Viet Nam on TV every night, you know where I'm coming from. The 5th Dimension fits right in for lovers of the Jackson 5, Dionne Warwick - even the Carpenters - in delivering that late 60's / early 70's middle class, suburban sound with a modicum of groove.

Marilyn McCoo's voice is one of the greatest ever! Her smooth, pretty tones span the edges of emotional soul with gentle adult contemporary grace, and she always sings on-pitch (a rarity today without computer aid)! Billy Davis, Jr. balances her with his raw (but controlled) manpower to put the top layers on this quintet.

"Age Of Aquarius" is absolutely haunting and unforgettable. "Worst That Could Happen / Wedding Bell Blues" is the epitome of a he-said, she-said love "tragedy." "The Girl's Song" offers the obligatory Bacharach contribution (could we have had such great music without him?), while covers of "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" and "Never My Love" round out a complete sonic meal.

I'm just a grown-up, middle-class white kid, but the 5th Dimension sang an indelible part of the soundtrack to my life. And I love 'em for it!
