`TAMBOURINE DAYS: THE DEFINITIVE HISTORY OF KALEIDOSCOPE & FAIRFIELD PARLOUR`

With over a hundred photographs -- many never seen before -- and in two hundred pages, Kaleidoscope`s lead vocalist and song-writer tells the tale of Britain`s favourite `lost` band. From a grubby school hall in West London to the sunlit vistas of California this story has everything: dreams and corporate battles, success and failure, inspiration and despair.

Back then at the dog-eared final days of the Sixties no-one could have forseen the band`s final redemption decades later as they took their rightful place alongside the other luminaries of British music. Indeed, they now enjoy a glowing worldwide reputation among collectors and music-lovers alike.

`Tambourine Days` is the definitive history of this unique band.

`WHITE-FACED LADY`

When Fairfield Parlour (aka Kaleidoscope) began writing and recording their magnum opus, `White-Faced Lady` in 1971 little did they know that it would be two decades before the double concept album saw the light of day.

The band had been caught up in a classic Catch-22 situation: Olav Wyper, the Vertigo executive who had commissioned the album was leaving to join RCA. Because of this his old label refused to honour any deals that he had entered into -- and his new label refused to take on projects that he had commission on his old label! Effectively without a recording deal the band found themselves in a penurious limbo. The following year the band broke up and the recordings were shelved.

But unknown to the band their reputation began to grow, based on their earlier seminal albums as Kaleidoscope, `Tangerine Dream` and `Faintly Blowing` and on their respected Fairfield Parlour album, `From Home to Home.` In 1991 `White-Faced Lady` was released on vinyl -- and has been reissued successfully many times throughout the world on CD.

Peter Daltrey`s accompanying story was printed in the sleeve notes -- but here for the first time is the expanded text in book form, sumptuously illustrated throughout.

`NEVERGREEN`

As we entered the new millenium American songwriter and celebrated enfant terrible Damien Youth decided to write to
Peter Daltrey of British bands, Kaleidoscope and Fairfield Parlour.

A unique creative collaborative partnership was formed --
and the concept album, `Nevergreen` was the first result of that union.

Set in a timeless but distinctly medieval English period, the story was told of a mysterious young girl, a foundling, discovered in a crop circle of wheat -- and of her subsequent relationship with an equally enigmatic young boy.
But the villagers` rejoicing soon turned to fear as the rains began...

A tragic end was foretold...

.....

Here for the first time is the full Nevergreen story in book form, illustrated throughout its 160 pages.
