Reviews of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.:
+ The New York Times: "Ms. McCoo and Mr. Davis, now both in their mid 60s, are the most famous alumni of The Fifth Dimension, the group that homogenized pop and rock strains into cheerful, polished lounge music that made grown-ups feel comfortably groovy... Both are still strong singers."
+ Cabaret Scenes: "After forty years in the music biz and thirty-nine years of married life together, these 2/5ths of the original "Fifth Dimension" are still struttin' their stuff. They look and sound great... Their act is squeaky clean and polished with lots of information about their career(s) and personal lives. Just what an audience loves to hear! McCoo's pure, smooth and supple sound is as good as it gets."
