The 5th Dimension

From: Los Angeles, CA, USA

The 5th Dimension is an American popular music vocal group, whose repertoire includes pop, R&B, soul, jazz, light opera and Broadway – something that became known as “Champagne Soul.”

Originally known as The Versatiles, the band formed in 1965, changing their name to The 5th Dimension by 1966. They became well-known during the late 1960s and early 1970s for hits like “Up, Up And Away”, “Stoned Soul Picnic”, Medley: Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In (The Flesh Failures)”, “Wedding Bell Blues”, “One Less Bell To Answer”, and “(Last Night) I Didn’t Get To Sleep At All.”

The five original members were Billy Davis Jr., Florence LaRue, Marilyn McCoo, Lamonte McLemore, and Ronald Townson. Over their career, The 5th Dimension recorded for several labels, starting out on Soul City, which was started by Imperial Records/United Artists Records recording artist Johnny Rivers.

The 5th Dimension would go on to have quite a successful career, recording a number of hits and making several television appearances. The original quintet reunited in 1990 and 1991 for a tour. The band recorded a new album, In The House, in 1995. As of April 2009, the group was actively touring as “The 5th Dimension featuring Florence LaRue”.
