Further reflections, the complete recordsings 1967-69 - Kaleidoscope

Further reflections, the complete recordsings 1967-69
Now widely considered to have been one of the finest groups to emerge from the British psychedelic pop scene, Kaleidoscope signed to the Fontana label in the epochal year of 1967. Over the next couple of years, they issued two magnificent albums, Tangerine Dream and Faintly Blowing, as well as a quintet of vibrant, inventive, highly commercial singles.

Somehow, though, they failed to achieve the glittering prizes that everyone predicted would be theirs. Frustrated by their lack of success, and with a heavier musical climate taking hold, they ended the decade with a change of name to Fairfield Parlour and a new deal with progressive rock label Vertigo.

But, as singer and lyricist Peter Daltrey observed at the end of Kaleidoscope’s debut album, the children stayed children, and they lived in their dreams. Undoubtedly the definitive Kaleidoscope package, Further Reflections assembles the group’s entire recorded legacy for the Fontana label under one roof for the first time. Relax your eyes, for after all, we can but share these minutes...

Beat Boy
Released 16th February 2009. The first reissue of this seminal 1984 album 'Beat Boy', the third studio album recorded by the pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage.

This is the first time that the album has been available on CD in the UK. This album saw a change in musical direction with the introduction of new members to replace the departures of Midge Ure and Barry Adamson. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band's electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. Visage were formed as supergroup of their day, formed by Steve Strange and ex-Rich Kid Rusty Egan, they recruited Billy Currie and Midge Ure from Ultravox, Dave Formula and Barry Adamson from Magazine and John McGeogh from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Members came and went but the band's core remained as Strange and Egan.

This CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks not included on the original 8 track release. These include extended mixes of the two singles taken from the album, 'Beat Boy' and 'Love Glove.

Epic Garden Music
Sad Lovers and Giants originally formed in 1981 and produced ‘classy alternative pop music’, a psychedelic post punk sound. The guitars chimed above atmospheric keyboards held together by a rock solid rhythm section underpinning very accessible song writing and the strong haunting voice of singer Garce.

Think Chameleons, early Cure and latterly bands like Interpol. After their initial split in 1984 interest in the band grew at home and abroad prompting them into reforming in the late 80’s and producing several more great albums but ‘Epic Garden Music’ is the starting point.

Theodore And Friends
Released 20/07/2009. The Adventures were a rock band formed in Belfast in the1980s who moved to London where they had hits in the UK Singles Chart during the 1980s. Released back in 1985,'Theodore and Friends' is a rock album that proves The Adventures were one of the most underrated bands around at that time. The First single from the album Another Silent Day failed to chart, but it was followed later in 1984 by the superb Send My Heart - a top quality 80's single which made it into the UK top 40. This was then followed up by the Hit single Feel The Raindrops that was a massive radio and chart hit.

This timely reissue contains the original UK album re-mastered and also contains selected rare bonus tracks, which have never been on CD before. The booklet with an exclusive interview with guitarist contains rare memorabilia as well. Much sought after release on CD New sleeve-notes by Classic Rock s Malcolm Dome with original member Pat Cribben. Contains the top 20 hit Feel The Raindrops.
