Their 1966 garage classic Goin' Too Far b/w Walkin' Away was a tremendous regional success, becoming the biggest selling seven-incher from Columbus, Ohio. Their second local hit, A Thousand Devils (Are Chasing) b/w Today I Got A Letter, was picked up by Laurie for national release. These two records have long been recognised as sterling examples of Ohio's vibrant mid- 60s garage rock scene. But the story of the Fifth Order has remained untold - until now. This collection presents those two 45s, in addition to their unheard third single and no less than six newly-discovered unreleased recordings and demos of exceptional quality. Revealed at last is the detailed history of the band, as told by former members Jim Hilditch and Billy Carroll, and embellished with stunning never-before-seen photos. The time has come to light the musical bonfire and celebrate the return of Ohio's finest '60s combo, the Fifth Order.  Read full Info! The Fifth Order (pdf)
