Kaleidoscope (Fairfield Parlour)

Kaleidoscope was a great English psychedelic rock/proto-prog band (not to be confused with the American band Kaleidoscope which existed at the same period and played basically psychedelic rock too) that was active between 1963 and 1972. The band was also known at various times as The Sidekicks, The Key, I Luv Wight and Fairfield Parlour. They had talent to be one of the major progressive rock acts of their age but they "died" prematurely due to bad luck in the crucial moments. Kaleidoscope were one of the first progressive rock bands that evoluted with the genre and made a fantastic work. Read more here.
