The ‘In’ Crowd was first written in 1964 by Billy Page and arranged by his brother Gene Page, an influential composer and arranger, who had worked with artists such as Lionel Richie, The Jackson Five and Elton John. The song was originally performed by Dobie Gray on his album ‘Dobie Gray Sings for 'In' Crowders That 'Go Go'’ and reached No. 13 in the US and No. 25 in the UK charts. An instrumental version of the tune was recorded later that same year by The Ramsey Lewis Trio. Their jazzy take was even more successful, reaching No 5 in the US charts.
This arrangement for Piano, Voice and Guitar of the fun-loving ‘60s song is as much fun to perform as it is to listen to and will have audiences tapping their feet right from the first few notes.
