Fairfield Parlour - Bordeaux Rose (Vertigo 6059 003 - 1970)

Fairfield Parlour are one of those relatively obscure UK bands that emerged from the late 1960s having already had some success under the name of Kaleidoscope, a name already taken by a psychedelic band from California. Their style was pretty much in the same vein as early Pink Floyd and Traffic, with folk elements and their debut album FROM HOME TO HOME seemed to pop up in every record shop browser in 1970, the year of its release. Prior to the release of the album on the swirling Vertigo label, the band released this as their first single as Fairfield Parlour, though they had already released seven singles as Kaleidoscope, again on the Vertigo label.
