Up, Up and Away

The 5th Dimension 4/18/2000


Released in 1967, the first album release from the often maligned though talented and singular group the 5th Dimension was also a feature for Jimmy Webb, who contributed to one track and arranged and conducted the whole effort. The most well-known song remains one of the finer songs of the decade; "Up-Up and Away" matched the group's gorgeous harmonies, with a great and ethereal yet full-bodied production. Despite that groundbreaking song, Up, Up and Away is mostly the group finding their sound with mixed results. Their cover of the Mamas & the Papas' "Go Where You Want to Go" is such a carbon copy, Billy Davis, Jr. probably wore one of John Phillips' big hats for the session. Their cover of "Poor Side of Town" is pointless, and the Motown-inspired "I'll Be Loving You Forever" comes off forced and as phony as a sack of three dollar bills. Up, Up and Away was certainly commendable for the style forged here, but even better work was ahead for the group. ~ Jason Elias
