Coming out of Acton in West London, The Kaleidoscope were initially signed to Fontana for 12 months in 1967. The story is that on listening to the band's first set of sessions, Leslie Gould (MD of Fontana's parent, Philips) was dismayed by the laxness of the label and demanded that The Kaleidoscope's contract be extended for a further four years.

The Kaleidoscope on being signed got to work on their debut album, staying long into the night perfecting the sound and at the same time earning the reputation for being the hardest working band at Fontana. Despite the shaky start with the label, it became very apparent that the entire company had become slightly obsessed with The Kaleidoscope, indeed championing them as the sound of tomorrow.

Despite a couple of initial singles doing nothing in the charts, the label pushed ahead and quite rightly released The Kaleidoscope's debut album in November 1967; Tangerine Dream was and still is nothing short of brilliant. The band was rightfully delighted with the record, the label was smitten with it and disc jockeys couldn't get enough of it. Yet like so many bands on The Cellar Tapes, the album is now largely forgotten and cast to the crates for the collectors.

So what does the sound of tomorrow sound like in 1967, a year which afterall gave us Piper at The Gates and Sgt Pepper? Well Tangerine Dream is certainly just as special and due to its whimsical and fairytale like nature, it does stand away from these two other seminal releases from that year.

When you listen to the truly beautiful Sky Children and the equally lovely Dear Nellie Goodrich, you cannot help but sit there in a cold sweat mulling over why this band is not held in the same esteem as some of their more illustrious peers.

Perhaps this came out just a little too late to catch the summer of love in 1967 - an August release might have seen this group up there with the best of them. Instead, it came out towards the year's end, and times were already changing (again).

Still. It's fabulous. A wonderful slice of 60s psych pop that could not have come from any other year. The single, the brilliantly ringing guitars of Flight from Ashiya, might be familiar, since it's been compiled many times. Equally great is Dive into Yesterday, with some wonderfully offbeat lyrics.

Not every track has worn well; Holidaymaker sounds a little ordinary, and the spoken A Lesson Perhaps doesn't bear too many repeated plays. But it runs into the album's best track, The Sky Children, a relentless musical fairy tale that recalls Donovan as his trippiest (think Legend of a Girl Child Linda).

This is a band that has gained fans through the years, and with very good reason. If you haven't discovered them yet, now is the time!

Other reviews talk about the album, so Im going to focus on the product. The vinyl I bought is heavyweight and flawless. It lies flat and the spindle hole is central. The inner bag is poly lined and the record comes with a nice booklet that gives some information about the history of the recording. Clearly Sunbeam have done a good job on the quality control front and this release is endorsed by the band. That much is clear from the booklet. Overall, the sound quality is good and almost matches the original pressing. The front cover is not as clearly printed as the original, though and the colours are a little more washed out with not as high a definition. This doesn't surprise me, as the original artwork must be lost, hence the cover is scanned. This shouldn't put anybody off though. This is a quality product and more than matches other recent releases including the high profile Beatles on vinyl. Highly recommended especially for fans of psychedelia.

Thanks to Repertoire for doing a wonderful job with the final documentation of England's most underrated psychedelic band. This is the first official release on CD of the group's first album, originally on Fontana, from 1967. Beatifully packaged, fully illustrated, with newly written liner notes by Chris Welch. The sound is probably as good as the master tapes allow. My personal favourite in the long The sky children - a real classic! And you get 6 bonus tracks taken from single releases. Three of them alternate versions of the album tracks (Flight from Ashiya, Holiday maker - A and B-sides of their first single, plus Please excuse my face, the B side of A dream for Julie)and the other three single releases (A dream for Julie (A-side), and Jenny Artichoke (A-side) plus Just how much you are (B-side). My only objection is that the Dutch single B mix of (Further reflections) In the room of percussion was not included. But then there is still room for future releases.The latter track (in its original album version) was included on Mojo's recent Psych out! compilation CD.
