The Five Americans

With their shouted harmonies and organ-pumping attack, the Oklahoma-by-way-of-Dallas Five Americans beamed their way into the Top 40 in 1966 with the hammering “I See the Light” and again in 1967 with the even bigger blockbuster “Western Union.” (The quintet’s second LP for Abnak, Western Union/Sound of Love, was produced by rockabilly great Dale Hawkins.)

But besides the impossibly infectious “Western Union” and its worthy, communication-themed follow-ups “Zip Code” and “Stop Light,” the Five Americans had much more to offer. By ably covering everything from tender folk rock to Baroque pop-psych—and even tough punk via ’67’s driving “See-Saw-Man”—it’s no wonder the Five Americans have earned the proud salutes of garage fans everywhere.
