Background: Up, Up and Away, released in 1967, was the debut LP by the 5th Dimension. It reached #8 on the U.S. album chart, helped by the title track, which reached #7 on the U.S. singles chart.
Released in 1967, the first album release from the often maligned though talented and singular group the 5th Dimension was also a feature for Jimmy Webb, who contributed to one track and arranged and conducted the whole effort. The most well-known song remains one of the finer songs of the decade; “Up-Up and Away” matched the group’s gorgeous harmonies, with a great and ethereal yet full-bodied production. …Up, Up and Away was certainly commendable for the style forged here, but even better work was ahead for the group.
