Description
By 1966, the Byrds had powered up like a mammoth Atlas rocket boosting Astronauts into orbit around the Earth, with their third album, Fifth Dimension. This amped-up new sound--immediately dubbed raga-rock due to the Byrds newfound fascination with the music of Ravi Shankar and John Coltrane--is best exemplified by "Eight Miles High," yet another national pop smash, and "5D (Fifth Dimension)," both swirling, multi-hued masses of sonic energy on an interplanetary scale. "5D" is tethered to a generation newly interested in LSD mind-trips, while "Eight Miles High" details the Byrds' first transcontinental flight to the United Kingdom. Folk-rock, always a Byrds staple, appears in the luscious form of "Wild Mountain Tyme" and "John Riley." "Hey Joe," soon to become a standard of shaggy-haired garage rock nation, is a standout, while "Mr. Spaceman," a brilliant, humorous blend of deep space and country-rock also scaled the national charts. Unavailable for over 40 years, we're proud to present the first ever reissue of this monumental recording in its original, highly-sought-after mono incarnation, cut directly from the original Columbia Recordings analog mono masters, with perfect artwork restoration and meticulously faithful mastering. --sundazed.com
