"Stoned Soul Picnic" is a 1968 song by Laura Nyro. The best-known version of the song was recorded by The 5th Dimension, and was the first single released from their album of the same title. It was the most successful single from that album, reaching #3 on the U.S. Pop chart and #2 on the Billboard R&B chart. I have always adored the late Laura Nyro's compositions throughout the 50's and 60's. The most challenging section to arrange here is the bridge that moves from Fm-Db major to G Major. I incorporated all 16 tracks to score this classic performed by the Fifth Dimension. Big Band + Strings BP=110 Key: F
