The Fifth Dimension may have been a black vocal group but many of their biggest hits came very close to pure pop.

Marilyn McCoo, Billy Davis Jr, Florence LaRue, Lamont McLemore, and Ron Towson came together in 1966 and during the next ten years had 30 singles chart on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Hot 100 Pop Singles Chart.

“Stoned Soul Picnic” was released during the late spring of 1968. It was a breezy pop number and peaked at number three on the Hot 100. It helped tp solidify their reputation as one of the leading pop groups of the second half of the 1960s.
