Kaleidoscope were an American psychedelic folk/rock band. Their second album, A Beacon From Mars, was originally released in 1968 and garnered positive reviews. However, commercially it was a flop and has since become one of those forgotten or lost classics. Luckily, it's now available on vinyl so you can buy it and bask in its brilliance.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 15th May 2016

Kaleidoscope was a Los Angeles-based band in the Sixties which, despite talent to burn and an eclectic mix of styles which should've clicked naturally in the Summer Of Love, never broke out of cult status. There's mid-eastern-inspired jamming ("Taxim"), a nod to the blues ("You Don't Love Me"), a great counterculture anthem ("Life Will Pass You By") and inspired playing on bouzuki, oud and mandolin in addition to the traditional guitar, bass and drums set-up. Worth a buy if you're looking for a bit of the diverse.
