The Age of Aquarius – The 5th Dimension

The MARK’S VINTAGE VINYL page features something from Mark’s collection of recordings from over the years. Most of it is on vinyl – hence the name – though there will be a few entries from his CDs (remember those?).

The Age of Aquarius, by The 5th Dimension

  • Fourth album by The 5th Dimension, released in 1969.
  • I remember my sister Chris playing this album when I was 9 years old. Before this, the only music at our house was Mom and Dad’s – Christmas music, Glen Campbell, The Johnny Mann Singers, some Nat King Cole, and Classical Music.
  • The song Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In was used in the musical Hair in 1967. To me, it sounded so mystical, so intriguing. As usual (for me), I loved it for its great vocals and harmonies. It was the genesis of my love of music.
  • So…”Let The Sunshine In”…and enjoy this classic 60s hippie/pop song!
