The 5th Dimension, Portrait (1970)
The 5th album by The 5th Dimension – I don’t have the four before it; prior to picking this up I’ve only had compilations and a live album – but I do love this band. Great players on the recordings and great vocalists; the blend of female and male voices, the blend of ballads and funkier tracks – killer cover of the Cocker-staple, Feelin’ Alright? right here. For example. I guess it all just came from hearing Aquarius – which is both novelty-song and masterpiece in my mind; it’s never far from my DJ bag. It always seems to work too…or if it doesn’t I don’t care. It works just fine for me. This album – a recent find – is packed with gems. I love it.
