Kaleidoscope - White Faced Lady 1971 UK
This album was in fact made by the progressive encarnation of "Kaleidoscope", whose name was "Fairfield Parlour", recorded in 1971. At the early stages, the band had the help of Moody Blues' Mike Pinder, who was setting a studio at his home. Unfortunately, at that time, the band was not so popular and lost their deal at Vertigo shortly after the completion of the album. They tried to move to RCA, but the company didn't want to risk the release of a double album by a relatively unknown band. The band completed the album, but couldn't get another deal and the album was shelved till the 90s, when the interest in old psychedelic and progressive rock resurfaced.

The sound is different from psychedelic beginning, more folk and symphonic, though with some psychedelic influences still evident. The songs are mostly short, but their themes are connected, since the album was made to be a rock-opera, with lyrics and a history of the concept in the booklet, about the life of the White-Faced Lady, an innocent girl that becomes a movie star by accident and eventually has achieved the stardom, but lately only faced the downsides of life.
