Grazin is a beautiful album of pop soul tracks, recorded by a group that was once (along with the 5th Dimension) part of the legendary Rex Middleton’s Hi-Fi‘s from LA. The record sports their hit vocal version of Hugh Masekela’s Grazing In The Grass, with the great I can dig it line, plus an excellent reading of a lost cut by funky drummer Roy Porter, entitled Lonesome Mood. In January 1970 the group was chosen as the Best New R&B Group of 1969 by Record World magazine. This a [email protected] rip of my original RCA vinyl. Those who like 5th Dimension will adore them. Jessica Cleaves, Barbara Love, Harry Elston, and Floyd Butler were the Friends of Distinction, Southern California natives who sought to imitate the Fifth Dimension’s success.
