Album of the Day

The Fifth Avenue Band

The Fifth Avenue Band only made one album, but virtually anyone who's heard it wishes the Greenwich Village-based group had been more prolific. Produced by Zal Yanovsky and Jerry Yester of the Lovin' Spoonful, the 1969 Reprise collection has an irresistibly sunny vibe to it, though it's hardly sunshine pop; highlights including “Angel,” “Country Time Rhymes,” “Fast Freight” and “Nice Folks” range from folk to rock to jazz and beyond. With strong originals, tasteful arrangements and expert singing and playing throughout, THE FIFTH AVENUE BAND has broad appeal while never getting flashy - it's a true grower.
