–Finally!  EARTHBOUND (re-mastered) on Real Gone Music CD’s.  The “swan song” album by the original quintet, Jimmy Webb produces The 5th Dimension, once again. Marilyn & Billy weigh in via liners with their thoughts today on this emotional and harmoniously hip project of ‘75.

SOLID GOLD by Marilyn McCoo is an ‘80’s reissue on Real Gone.  It features fan faves “Heart Stop Beating In Time,” “One on One,” ‘Always on My Mind,” an unreleased tune gets un-vaulted and MarBill’s “I Believe in You and Me” is still so breathtaking.
