    5th Dimension-The Complete Singles 1966-1975 [repress ] [Real Gone] [2/4/2022]

    Description
    A 50th anniversary celebration calls for some champagne…champagne soul, that is! Back in 1966, Billy Davis, Jr., Florence LaRue, Marilyn McCoo, Lamonte McLemore, and Ron Townson first started making beautiful music together, and the world of pop music has never been the same. Now, in 2016, 50 years later, Real Gone Music is proud to present the most comprehensive 5th Dimension collection ever compiled, a 3-CD set containing their complete singles for the Soul City and Bell labels [plus their first single on the Bronco label as The Versatiles and their lone single release for Arista], 61 tracks of swinging, soulful harmonies, brilliant arrangements, groundbreaking production, and some of the best songwriting to come out of the ‘60s and ‘70s. This 3-CD set—which is housed inside a sumptuous, 8-panel digipak mini-album featuring rare photos—not only includes 30 Pop and 15 R&B hits, all in their hard-to-find, mono mixes [only the last four tracks on the set are in stereo], featuring such legendary recordings as “Up—Up and Away,” “Stoned Soul Picnic,” “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” “[Last Night] I Didn’t Get to Sleep at All,” and “If I Could Reach You,” but also some rare, non-LP single sides and single edits, nearly all making their CD debuts here! With production by the great Bones Howe, vocal arrangements by Bob Alcivar, and the instrumental accompaniment of the famed Wrecking Crew, the confluence of talent on these sides is simply staggering. And, of course, The 5th Dimension brought the songwriting genius of Laura Nyro and Jimmy Webb to the masses; their collaborations with Webb in particular remain among the pinnacles of ‘60s pop. Remastered by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios, and with notes by Paul Grein featuring quotes from Billy Davis, Jr. and Marilyn McCoo that trace the historic arc of the group, The Complete Soul City/Bell Singles 1966-1975 isn’t just the definitive look at The 5th Dimension; it’s a collection that defines the whole sunshine pop genre.

    Note: this is a repress of collection from 2016.

    Nice!! Thanks for sharing this great news, Motown Eddie! This one has been on my wishlist for a while, as I had missed out on the first run. The prices on the first out of print edition are 'up, up and away'. So glad that I will be able to get it!

    It's good news indeed; especially when the CD is a repress like The 5th Dimension's is! Shows that there's still demand for the music that we love.

    Don't know if the LPs that The 5th Dimension did for Motown are ever going to be reissued since they were only moderate sellers and didn't produce any major hits [their Earthbound LP on ABC & the In The House set on Columbia didn't do well either].

    Nice that they see fit to repress this. I bought it soon after its initial release and am very happy with it. I have two of their regular albums but this is the one I play the most.

    Too bad they couldn't license the ABC material.

    Don't know why that happened; even the Real Gone Music site doesn't have it listed as yet. Try Amazon [as well as other online vendors] again as the release date for the set gets nearer.

    I just checked the link on Amazon US and it's working now.
