Fifth Dimension - Voice Your Choice

The 5th Dimension scored many hits, initially on Johnny Rivers' record label, Soul City, then later on Bell/Arista Records. The members were Marilyn McCoo, Billy Davis Jr., Florence LaRue, Lamont McLemore, and Ron Townson. They originally recorded as the Versatiles in 1966.

Their first single for Soul City Records, Go Where You Wanna Go, made a sizable dent on the charts, peaking at number 16 in 1967. From their first appearance on the Billboard to their last single in 1980, they hit the charts a total of 30 times, including six Top Ten hits and astounding five Platinum selling records as well.
