Fifth Dimension. The Fifth Dimension made it big by stealing all of Laura Nyro's songs. Laura's singing oldies with Patti and the Bluebelles, so there aren't any more songs to steal. The Dimension's been keeping a low profile, ever since "One Less Bell to Answer" but I figure the middle of the road is due for a boost. Besides, my mom likes them as much as she likes Sly.
Beach Boys. I just finished reading a long rap in Outlaw Blues between Paul Williams and David Anderle about what a genius Brian Wilson is was. I guess so. I liked the surfing and car music, but "Surf's Up" hit me like a three footer coming in to Virginia Beach. What ever happened to "Smile?"
