One of the many half-decent bands that got lost in the shuffle in Britain during the mid-'60s, Five Steps Beyond only managed to record one single, in 1966. For that matter, that one 45 featured only their vocals, with session men playing all of the instrumental parts. In the mid-'90s, quite a few unreleased demos of original material surfaced that showed the group to be a capable, straightforward pop/rock combo. With their close harmonies and Paul Quinton's Colin Blunstone-like vocals, their sound fell somewhere between vintage Zombies and Hollies, though they weren't as distinguished as either of those bands.
