Topic: Fifth Dimension
A founding member of popular 1960's vocal group, the Fifth Dimension, Billy Davis, Jr. has continued to attract attention as a soloist and a duo partner with his wife, Marilyn McCoo. The hosts of a musical variety television program, the Marilyn McCoo And Billy Davis, Jr. Show, in 1977, they reunited for a 1990's revue, It Takes Two, that paid tribute to the great soul duets of the 60s, 70s, and 80's.
...complete BIOGRAPHYThe Fifth Dimension's unique sound lay somewhere between smooth, elegant soul and straightforward, adult-oriented pop, often with a distinct flower-power vibe. Although they appealed more to mainstream listeners than to a hip, hardcore R&B audience, they had a definite ear for contemporary trends; their selection of material helped kickstart the notable songwriting careers of Jimmy Webb and Laura Nyro, and their biggest hit was a medley from the hippie musical Hair, "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In."
