"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 on the Billboard Hot 100 on 20 February 1965 and #25 in the UK in 1965. Gray's Shindig! performance of the song aired on 10 March 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 on the Hot 100 on 9 October 1965 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.
