The 5th Dimension Age of Aquarius 1969

I'm posting this because it took me hours to find it. I remembered I had posted a video of a group of male and female black singers, but I could not remember the name of the group or the song. I did remember that the way the women were dancing was the sexiest thing I had ever seen. Anyway, I paged back through my blogs archives for months and could not find it. So I asked Google, which led me to African-American musical groups on Wikipedia. Nothing jumped out at me, so I copied the list into a spreadsheet and methodically went through and marked all the names I recognized (which was only about 10%), but still no cigar. Eventually though all this mulling brought the Age of Aquarius to mind and I was able to track down the YouTube video. My question now is why aren't The Fifth Dimension listed on that Wikipedia page?

You can file this under 'What? Me racist?'

Recording songs by the likes of John Phillips and Jimmy Webb for a label owned by Johnny Rivers means that people are going to forget all that blackness.
