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.
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...
"a double-disc set of psychedelia that bristles with period charm, and generally manages to remain on the right side of indulgent". Music Week, 29/06/2012
"Bringing together Kaleidoscope's two Fontana albums, Tangerine Dream and Faintly Blowing, plus all five of the group's singles, this is the first time their entire output has come under one roof". Mick Houghton (Uncut - July 2012)
