The Byrds- Fifth Dimension (1966)

The Byrds- Fifth Dimension (Columbia)

Released July 18, 1966. Recorded January 24-May 25, 1966 

Fifth Dimension marked a pivotal moment for The Byrds as they navigated Gene Clark's departure and embraced new musical directions. With Jim (Roger) McGuinn and David Crosby taking on more songwriting, the album experimented with folk rock, psychedelia, and raga rock. Tracks like "Eight Miles High" and "5D (Fifth Dimension)" showcased this shift despite facing controversy. Singles like "Mr. Spaceman" and "Eight Miles High" succeeded in becoming landmark psychedelic rock tracks. Despite mixed reviews initially, the album's diverse tracks reflect The Byrds' willingness to evolve.
