Look through any self respecting quality music publication or web site and peruse through a list of the most important and influential
psychedelic albums of all time and you can be pretty sure to see KALEIDOSCOPE'S 'Tangerine Dream" ranked high up there,
along with your 'Sgt Peppers', your 'Forever Changes' 'Satanic Majesties Request' 'Axis Bold As Love' 'Odyssey & Oracle' and 'The
Psychedelic Sounds of the 13 th Floor Elevators'....
This seminal album of quintessential English psychedelia is one of the most highly prized artifacts that define the psychedelic genre
and like some of the most highly collected and prized albums from that time, mint copies can now go for way in excess of £1000.
Thus given the record`s rarity & collectability, matched to the recent explosive interest in all things psyche, garage & underground,
you would be excused for thinking that this slice of perfect late 60's progressive underground pop would have been given the full
reissue and remastering treatment already. Surprisingly though, you would very much be mistaken. But to those of you who know
the checkered history of Kaleidoscope this will perhaps come as no surprise!?!!

Thankfully after 3 years of painstaking detective work, chance encounters with Universal archivists, heavy negotiations with major
label legal executives and some good fortune, we are delighted to announce that this record will finally not only get its first proper
official reissue in over 5 decades, but thanks to a lot of pure persistence it can now be presented to its listeners in the manner in
which it was supposed to have been heard, following the discovery of a batch of the original master tapes that were languishing in
the vaults of Universal that have laid largely unheard for 50 years!
Furthermore following a couple of shared festival billings at Austin and Copenhagen Psyche Festival, with another legend of the
scene, Mr Pete Kember aka SONIC BOOM of SPACEMEN 3 fame, Sonic has been holed up in his Lisbon studio, painstakingly
remastering the album from the original " tapes.
The remastering of these " tapes though is only part of the story, as along with the discovery of these a significant number of "
tapes and other material was also discovered which is penned for a future release when the band`s entire works will be presented in
a definitive boxset of all four of their studio albums (including all their Fairfield Parlour recordings) plus BBC Sessions, live
recordings, alternative takes, new mixes, unreleased tracks and material from the band`s own archive including pre-Kaleidoscope
demos when they were known as both The Sidekicks and The Key.
