9/17/14–Today we honor the birthday of the founder of The 5th Dimension, Mr. LaMonte McLemore. This is a very special day as LaMonte and I have worked diligently on the story of his life for the past 4 years and we expect FROM HOBO FLATS TO THE 5th DIMENSION, A LIFE FULFILLED IN BASEBALL, PHOTOGRAPHY AND MUSIC to come your way between Christmas and New Year season…it is a memoir of heart, soul, history, humor and inspiration. There are awesome rare photos galore, but of course and even a recipe!
Last Mac and I told you about the many celebrities that will be spotlighted throughout FROM HOBO FLATS TO THE 5th DIMENSION’S pages, and today as a special “preview” birthday celebration treat, we wanted you to know about the songs from The 5th Dimension songbook that he gets to talk about in-depth, giving you the inside scoop from his “mellow bass” perspective. In his memoir, you’ll read about: “Go Where You Wanna Go,” “Up-Up and Away,” “Stoned Soul Picnic,” “Orange Air,” “Requium: 820 Latham,” “The Girls’ Song,” “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” “Workin’ on a Groovy Thing,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “The Declaration/A Change Is Gonna Come/People Gotta Be Free,” “A Love Like Ours,” “One Less Bell,” “Light Sings,” “The Singer,” …“MacArthur Park,” “Love Medley” “Ode to Billie Joe,” “Black Patch,” “Sky and Sea,” “Living Together, Growing Together,” “Day by Day,” “No Love in the Room,” “Walk Your Feet in the Sunshine,” “I Got a Feeling,” “Love Hangover,” more!
Leave it to “Mac” to give his fans a gift on his own special day…but his cherished Grandma always taught him to “give back,” you’ll learn of Grandma Gertrude’s special wisdom all through the book, too!
Now, please leave your birthday greetings for LaMonte!
