"The ‘In’ Crowd" is a 1964song written by Billy Page and arranged by his brother Gene that was originally performed by Dobie Gray on his album Dobie Gray Sings for 'In' Crowders That 'Go Go. Gray's powerful Motown-like version, complete with brass section, reached #13 in the US and #25 in the UK in 1965.
The Ramsey Lewis Trio recorded an instrumental version of the tune later that same year. Their jazzy take, recorded live at Bohemian Caverns, a Washington, D.C. night club, reached #5 in the U.S. and was used for many years as background music of Jimmy Savile's Savile's Travels and Jimmy Savile's Old Record Club on BBC Radio 1.
The Ramsey Lewis Trio also recorded a smooth jazz version of the song for the 2004 album, Time Flies, 39 years after recording their original instrumental version.
