The In Crowd is a live album by the Ramsey Lewis Trio which was recorded in 1965 at the Bohemian Caverns nightclub in Washington . and released on the Argo label. The album provided Lewis with his biggest hit reaching the top position on the Billboard R&B Chart and No. 2 on their top 200 albums chart in 1965 and the single, "The 'In' Crowd" reaching No. 2 on the R&B Chart and No. 5 on the Hot 100 singles chart in the same year.

Golden Hits re-recorded by Ramsey Lewis is a true period piece with some of his famous songs re-recorded with an 80s electric vibe. There are many Ramsey Lewis "greatest hits" type collections which makes it difficult to distinguish one from another. This album is Ramsey "electrified" and that is in part what makes it so great coupled with a more mature/experienced Ramsey (the original LP was released in 1973 and I've been playing it ever since!). So while this album has the familiar titles, this is Ramsey re-imagined with his "new" trio of that era sidekicks, Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton, each stupendous in their own right.
