Fifth Dimension is the third album by the American folk rock band the Byrds and was released in July 1966 on Columbia Records see 1966 in music. Most of the album was recorded following the February 1966 departure of the band's principal songwriter Gene Clark. In an attempt to compensate for Clark's absence, guitarists Jim McGuinn and David Crosby stepped into the breach and increased their songwriting output. In spite of this, the loss of Clark resulted in an uneven album that included a total of. Fifth Dimension - The Byrds.

Immaculate folk-rock was still present in their superb arrangements of the traditional songs Wild Mountain Thyme and John Riley. For the originals, they devised some of the first and best psychedelic rock, often drawing from the influence of Indian raga in the guitar arrangements. The Byrds - Fifth Dimension 1966.

Laced with pop melodies that were catchy and extremely well written, Fifth Dimension with it’s paisley psychedelic lettering and magic carpet imagery, that while as good as it was, most people were expecting something a bit more edgy, a bit more druggie, and though inspirationally dark, was just too much of a struggle for fans in 1966, smack dab in the middle of the Summer of Love, competing with Dylan’s masterpiece Blonde on Blonde, Sounds of Silence from Simon & Garfunkel, or of course Revolver, where The Beatles bathed themselves and then the world in the brilliant softer colours of dreamy psychedelia.The Byrds where now competing with themselves, competing with their super cover of Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man,” the single that had put them on the musical map, and of course now with “Eight Miles High” … and therein lies the the ultimate dilemma and folly for The Byrds, as their renditions of both of these magical moments didn’t belong to them, those moments belonged to a group of studio musicians known as The Wrecking Crew. So in essence, The Byrds were standing toe to toe with a group of people who were musically lightyears ahead of The Byrds, meaning that in effect, yet again, the sound Firth Dimension was built around didn’t require that the band stand on their own two feet. That being said, the album was delightful in that it was a complete dichotomy, one filled with a great jangle and harmonic presence, creating an atmosphere that could be gentle and loving, while thunderous in the same breath, an album that was extremely well balanced with a mixture of jazz and rock influences. Yet still, while Fifth Dimension floated into nearly everyone’s home, it was darker and shrouded mystery, difficult to grasp and eluded nearly everyone (yes, even me), getting tucked away, save for the two songs that instantly hooked and resonated with listeners.It must have been difficult of the remaining members who came from such talented previous bands to find themselves yet again within a group that was falling apart rather quickly, with their songwriter Gene Clark taking his leave. And of course their were the band members themselves who’d probably taken a bit too much acid, with David Crosby and Roger McGuinn deadly serious about communicating with alternative life forms through radio waves (though the AM radio signals of the time would not reach very far), hence the song “Mr. Spaceman,” along with “5D (Fifth Dimension)” which actually wasn’t about LSD anymore than “Eight Miles High” was, but rather an abstract musical attempt to explain Einstein’s theory on relativity, with “Eight Miles High” having been penned on the flight home from their UK tour, about actually flying eight miles high, about being on one side of the world a few hours earlier and on the other side almost instantly, all while trying to make sense of that reality in the midst the over experimentalized aspects of the times and new ways of thinking. Without a doubt, the single “Eight Miles Hight” was as influential to the counterculture movement of the 60’s as was “White Rabbit” by The Jefferson Airplane, both amazing anthems that rose out of rather softer folk-rock albums. What listeners were not ready for, and if you think about it, were the mechanical aspects of the song “2-4-2 Fox Trot (The Lear Jet Song),” with most of those who drifted across the country to settle into San Francisco, was an aspect off life they were attempting to rid themselves of. In all honesty, the song was instantly edited by those who were recoding albums to cassettes.Yet still, there’s a charm to Fifth Dimension that can not be denied, an album that contains hidden treasures that have stood the test of time and are worthy of re-exploration, though exploration today comes without the essence and magic of the times from which this album came into being. We were all much younger then and the Byrds like all of us were attempting to find our way without a map in uncharted territory, so it’s easy to forgive their missteps, especially since several of the members of this band would go on to create some of the best music the world would ever hear.*** The Fun Facts: The Byrds were not making reference to the scientific fifth dimension of energy and light, but were referring to ascension teachings, where the earth and all beings living on the earth are in the process of shifting into a whole new level of reality in which a consciousness of love, compassion, peace and spiritual wisdom prevails. This has been called the Fifth Dimension.As to the song "Mr. Spaceman": The single release of the song was accompanied by a spoof press announcement from the Byrds' co-manager, Eddie Tickner, stating that he had taken out a $1,000,000 insurance policy with Lloyd's of London against his clients being kidnapped by extraterrestrial visitors. Band member David Crosby felt hopeful about communicating with alien life forms through the medium of AM radio broadcast. In a later interview with Pete Frame for ZigZag magazine, McGuinn explained how he believed that this would have been possible: "I was interested in astronomy and the possibility of connecting with extraterrestrial life and I thought that it might work the other way round, if we tried to contact them. I thought that the song being played on the air might be a way of getting through to them. But even if there had been anybody up there listening, they wouldn't have heard because I found out later that AM airwaves diffuse in space too rapidly."Review by Jenell Kesler
Yes, he writes a lot of bollocks doesn't he ! And a very inflated idea of his own opinions.
I cannot find any reference to The Wrecking Crew performing on any of The Byrds material except their Mr. Tambourine Man single (not the album, except that track). I have no idea where you got the idea that they performed on 'Eight Miles High.'
