Fairfield Parlour

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Fairfield Parlour was a short-lived 70s British prog-rock group formed after Kaleidoscope (the British '60s band) was dropped by their record label, Fontana, due to a lack of chart success.

After recording two albums as Kaleidoscope (the British '60s band), Peter Daltrey (vocals, piano, mellotron, harpsichord, organ, tambourine), Eddy Pumer (vocals, classical, acoustic twelve string and electric guitars, mellotron, organ, harpsichord), Dan Bridgman (vocals, drums, pedal tympany, tubular bells, tambourine, bongos) and Steve Clark (bass guitar, flutes) changed the band's name to Fairfield Parlour and signed to Vertigo, releasing the 1970s LP From Home To Home. Along with this name change came also a change in sound; their psychedelic '60s sound from their first two albums developing into a more folky sound with the introduction of flutes and harpsichords. Later releases of the album contain bonus tracks.

The band did record a subsequent album "White Faced Lady", which they financed independently. Attempts at finding a record company failed and the album was shelved until 1991 when it was released under the name Kaleidoscope on an independent label. The band member's last appearance in the early days was at a concert in Bremen, Germany, in 1972.
