I first got hipped to Kaleidoscope when I was working at Midnight Records. Mike played Tangerine Dream for me and I was totally blown away. I'm still blown away by it, to be honest.

We got this CD in when it came out and listened to it constantly. I particularly like "San Francisco".

Recently I was listening to them and realized that I didn't have a copy, digital or otherwise, of this record. I found it on Amazon for a few bucks and figured it was a worthwhile investment.

I know there were several Kaleidoscopes, but for my money this one was the best. Is there really any argument?

Some of the tracks are a bit rough as they are from acetates. Acetates they hadn't seen since the 60's. How does this happen? How do things like this go missing so easily? Don't people care about the past?

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, a CD by Kaleidoscope.
