THE 5TH DIMENSION - TOO POOR TO DIE



I know what many of you are thinking..."The 5TH DIMENSION??? HAVE YOU GONE CRACKERS???"

And I truly understand why. While many of the 5th Dimension hits are (admitted) guilty pleasures of mine, the tracks are very fluffy and not of the usual quantity of grit and sweat that I feature. This anomaly track, however, is an out and out stomper and shouter that is quite different than anything else in there catalog. This was their first release, as the b-side of "Go Where You Wanna Go". Too bad they didn't cut a few more in this vein.

from 1966...
