Limited 180 gram colored vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. By 1966, The Byrds had powered up like a mammoth Atlas rocket boosting Astronauts into orbit around the Earth, with their third album, Fifth Dimension. This amped-up new sound immediately dubbed raga-rock, due to The Byrds newfound fascination with the music of Ravi Shankar and John Coltrane, is best exemplified by "Eight Miles High," yet another national pop smash, and "5D (Fifth Dimension)," both swirling, multi-hued masses of sonic energy on an interplanetary scale. "5 D" is tethered to a generation newly interested in LSD mind-trips, while "Eight Miles High" details The Byrds' first transcontinental flight to the United Kingdom. Folk-rock, always a Byrds staple, appears in the luscious form of "Wild Mountain Tyme" and "John Riley." "Hey Joe," soon to become a standard of shaggy-haired garage rock nation, is a standout, while "Mr. Spaceman," a brilliant, humorous blend of deep space and country-rock also scaled the national charts.
