The Fifth Dimension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (185 words)
The Fifth Dimension is also the native dimension of Superman villain Mr.
The 5th Dimension is an American popular music vocal group, whose repertoire also includes RandB, Soul, and Jazz, best-known during the late 1960s and 1970s for popularizing hits of songwriters like Jimmy Webb, Laura Nyro, Ashford and Simpson, and others, and helping to popularize "flower power" music with both white and fl middle-class Americans.
Some of the songwriters popularised by The 5th Dimension later went on to careers of their own, especially Ashford and Simpson, and McCoo and Davis gained later fame under their own names.
The Byrds (6897 words)
This album is very innovative because it blended the melodies and harmonies of the Beatles, and the folkiness of Bob Dylan into one style, and kind of brought a new maturity to rock n' roll.
Fifth Dimension saw David Crosby emerging as a songwriter for the band, but by the time of the recording sessions for this album bass player Chris Hillman was contributing a good deal of the material as well.
The album is given a home-blown dusty feature as well, as the bands' growing use and apparent love of the sound of the steel guitar make heavy country influences creep in through-out this 'free-flowing' journey.
