Kaleidoscope - Faintly Blowing (1969)

The second album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

This is the final album from the original version of Kaleidoscope before their changed their name to Farfield Parlour who released one album. 

A third Kaleidoscope album was recorded in 1970 but not released before 1990, long after the demise of this band.

Faintly Blowing is pretty similar to the debut album.

We get forty minutes of psych pop from the 1960s.

The influences are The Moody Blues and The Beatles. That and the other beat bands from that time.

The music is pretty charming.

The vocals are good and the musicians does their best.

The quality is decent enough and I have heard worse albums from the beat genre than this album.

This band is well worth checking out.
