The Friends of Distinction were an American vocal group best known for their late 1960s hits, "Grazing in the Grass", "Love or Let Me Be Lonely", and "Going in Circles".

Complete your The Friends Of Distinction collection. After a little-known lackluster LP that really didn't jell, the Friends found their niche with a fantastic album that starts off with five memorable catchy songs that secured their place in musical history, including the classics "Goin' In Circles" and their vocal take on Hugh Masekela's "Grazing In The Grass. As stated, you will also love "Sweet Young Thing Like You" and "I Really Hope You Do" as well

The Friends of Distinction were formed in 1968, by Floyd Butler, Harry Elston, Jessica Cleaves, and Barbara Love. Their first major hit, 'Grazin' in the Grass', was a radical vocal reworking of the hit by Hugh Masekela with lyrics written by Elston. Released in June 1969, this gold record zoomed into the Top 5 on both the Pop and Soul charts in the US, peaking at The Friends were very prolific between 1969 and 1971, releasing five albums, and enjoying numerous Pop and Soul hits. Each "Grazin'" song was hand-picked and "majority rule" voted upon by the group, our talented arranger, Ray Cork, and me - just like the 5th Dimension selected their material. Even the choice of a lead singer for each tune was first individually auditioned and then voted on - an amazing, ego-free democracy.
