The Byrds Fifth Dimension: 50th Anniversary Edition on Limited Edition Colored 180g LP from Friday Music

Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music & Capitol Mastering / Pressed at RTI

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.

"5 D" 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.

Limited edition colored 180g vinyl pressing housed in a gatefold cover. Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music/Capitol Mastering and pressed at RTI.
