the byrds, the fifth dimension, lsd, and einstein — part 2

This is the second in a series of pieces on the Byrds’ sixth single, 5D (Fifth Dimension). In it, I discuss some background information on the Byrds and their chart-topping successes in 1965.

This entry on the Byrds’ 5D (Fifth Dimension) single from 1966 has been moved from this website to my new website, Rather Rare Records (ratherrarerecords.com). It has been combined with the six other parts here into one piece there: “the byrds’ 5D (fifth dimension) – is it the most underrated single of the psychedelic sixties?” Minor modifications were made on the seven parts so that it reads more fluently and less redundantly.

  1. P.F. Sloan first heard “Mr. Tambourine Man” live at a club where the Byrds were playing.

    “And the next thing I knew, they did Tambourine Man. I was out in the audience and it felt as if the world had shifted course…the audience reaction was…those who were ready to enter into a new dimension were excited, and those who weren’t, were completely like turned into cardboard cut-outs, and relics of American Graffiti…they just weren’t going to be there. It was a memorable moment!”

  2. BILL Apologies for the delay in responding here: I just realized that I have several “pending” comments! Wow! What a great way of putting it: the new dimension versus the reality of AMERICAN GRAFFITI. Some of us chose the former, but most the latter. Thanks for the input! NEAL
