The hits kept on coming from heroic Dallas fivesome The Five Americans with their third longplayer, 1967’s Progressions. Both “Zip Code” and “Evol-Not Love” careened up the charts as The Five Americans squared off on live stages throughout the Deep South with artists such as the Doors and Jefferson Airplane – and more than held their own against the best American rock ‘n’ roll had to offer!
An exciting combination of sunshine pop, bubblegum and folk rock with psychedelic undertones makes Progressions by The Five Americans a true time capsule of those special 60s sunshine days. Similar in style to their previous two albums, but with noticeably more psych influences. The Five Americans' third release, is their most well crafted album reminding us on the Monkees. Fans of sunshine pop interested in something more “matured” by this groovy Dallas garage combo should definitely start with Progressions.
