About Sweet Blindness

"Sweet Blindness" is a song written by Laura Nyro and released in 1968. The best known version was recorded by The 5th Dimension later the same year. It reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, #15 in Canada, #19 in Australia, and #45 on the U. S. R&B chart in 1968. It was featured on their 1968 album, Stoned Soul Picnic. The song was a drinking song, that sounded old fashioned, and noted for its rhythm changes, as well as for its brass section. The song ends with the noted Count Basie piano riff before the brass holds a long jazzy cadenza. The song was produced by Bones Howe and arranged by Bill Holman, Bob Alcivar, Ray Pohlman, and Howe.
