Album Faintly Blowing. Faintly Blowing Lyrics. Many's the time I've sat here alone with you Two flowers in a field could not be sweeter Nor breezes up high in the blue Higher than you, faintly blowing Higher than you, faintly blowing Higher than you, faintly blowing Time and again we have not said a word, just looked Two tumbling stones on a beach in the surf Living.

Faintly Blowing Tracklist. 1.

Faintly blowing" was Kaleidoscope's second, and last album before changing their name to Fairfeld Parlour. The album is certainly a slight development from their first release, but the music is still firmly rooted in the pop of the late 60's. The BEATLES, Pye era STATUS QUO, early MOODY BLUES et. are all clearly major influences on the music of the band, and indeed the lyrics. Interestingly, this album actually resembles GENESIS first album "From Genesis to revelation" in a number of places, most noticeably "(Love song) For Annie"

Features Song Lyrics for Kaleidoscope's Faintly Blowing album. Kaleidoscope - Faintly Blowing Album Lyrics.

For their second album, Kaleidoscope delivered something an awful lot like their debut, a body of pleasant, trippy, spacy raga-rock, with the main difference that they pushed the wattage a little harder on their instruments - they'd also been performing pretty extensively by the time of their second long-player, and a lot of the music here was material that. They'd worked out on-stage in very solid versions. The result is a record just as pretty as their debut but a little punchier and more exciting within each song than their first album

Redirected from Faintly Blowing (album)). Faintly Blowing is Kaleidoscope's second studio album released by Fontana Records in April 1969. Though not as popular as the . Kaleidoscope, this British band was also a band from the psychedelic movement with moderate domestic success, and just enough international exposure to have this album recognized in the genre's catalogue and regarded as one of the best in the same. All songs composed by Eddy Pumer (music) and Peter Daltrey (lyrics).

FYI, the 'watermark' appears on Side 1 track 1 and is clearly audible for about a minute into the track. I have seen 3 copies and all have had the watermark. I was assuming all pressings had this same defect but I don;t know for sure. If you want a great pressing of this lp without the watermark seek out the superb sounding reissue on 5 Hours Back

My copy has a watermark.. Not audible though. Id rather have the watermark to ensure it's an original :)

Exellent
There are plans for a box set and/or a repress of this as they did with Tangerine dream on orange vinyl (I hear it is a very quiet, well done pressing with mastering done by Pete Kember using the original master tapes). It just takes time as they want to do it properly.

For me Sunbeam don't live up to expectations. Priced at the top of the re-issue market, you would expect perfection, or close to it. On the outside all looks great, their packaging and presentation is always top notch, and there is often added information which is interesting to read. That said, it is all downhill from here. After all the main point of a re-issue is the music. The very least you would expect from any re-issue, is a true representation of the original, with sound quality to match. Indeed, in some cases re-issues can actually improve badly pressed original vinyl to some degree, using recent technology. However, with many Sunbeam re-issues, their sound, levels, and mixing is at best 'questionable', and vinyl quality is only 'so-so'. For example (as mentioned below) this re-issue was pressed with a skip on 'Bless The Executioner' - and it isn't the only Sunbeam re-issue to do this. Most people would think twice about buying an original copy of this LP from 1969 with a skip in it, but to produce a re-issue with a skip is unforgiveable. The label doesn't use a professional producer, so I think the sound quality could be improved if they employed someone who knows what they are doing. As I said, to give them their credit, their covers and packaging are always very well done. But as the vinyl is less than perfect, I do wonder if they are solely focusing on the 'I want to own it, but won't play it" brigade? I must also say, that for those who have never heard originals of Sunbeam re-issues, they will probably think they are reasonable. So in this way they serve a purpose. But if you do have an original issue and play it in comparison, then I'm afraid most Sunbeam re-issues fall far short of expectations. I would say 10/10 for packaging, and 5/10 for the vinyl. If they can improve the vinyl to the packaging levels, then they would be the best re-issue label out there. Until then, its really only worth conisdering for reference only.....

No the record just not jump or skip - the record SKIPS a few seconds of music! Clearly the original this was taken from had a fault.

Ndav
While new vinyl these days can be very imperfect, it doesn't skip; Perhaps you should check your setup or upgrade your turntable/cartridge before making such a critique. The fact that you claim this new record skips makes me unable to take your review seriously. Old records sometimes skip due to heavy groove damage (mostly because they were played with heavy-tracking cartridges that were often worn or misaligned) - this would not be a problem with new records.

Definitely NOT a top 5 Psych LP. Although half of it is. I'l explain. One side of the LP is a GEM. Really good. But it sounds to me like they ran out of ideas or came up with a few substandard tracks to 'fill' the LP. Oh and another myth people like to portray. This LP is FULLY Psychedelic and has ZERO to do with prog. For some reason people say this isn't as good, or as Psychedelic as their first LP. They are wrong. At least HALF the track are as good if not better than the first LP. Clearly at this point, they know far more about effects - and whereas on the first LP a few tracks sound a bit 'twee' and basic, here they have mastered the art of using psychdelic effects fully. Just a shame that a few weak tracks drop the LP below the first one. However, be sure of one thing - it is pure psych, and has as much to do with prog as my nan.

Mohn
1) I am not young. 2) Talking down to someone is extremely lame. 3) The Top 5 Psych detail was relating to another comment. 4) It is indisputable that one side of the LP is fairly poor compared to the other. 5) Psych and Prog are not measurable? OK so why do those terms exist? 6) You sound like the pompous fool - not me.

invasion
Oh no! I have upset someone. It is common consensus that one Side of the LP is average at best. Just because you are in love with them and want their babies isn't my problem. So you are saying if I dare to criticise them in any way - I should pick up a James Last LP? Thats pretty lame.....

Voodoosida
mate are you mad its a classic if you dont like the whole lp stick to easy listening junk

Ieregr
Well I consider it a Baroque Pop Pysch album. Psych is just a general term. theres many variations of psych. I've seen an album with steel drums and psych on it, Brown Rain by Victor Brady lol

Ranicengi
A word of advice young man: Whether it is considered a 'top 5' psych LP, or even 'pure' psych or 'prog' is not objectivelty measurable and therefore cannot be stated definitively as a matter of 'fact' one way or the other. You would do well to remember the difference between facts and opinions when posting your opinions and in this way you will avoid looking like a pompous fool.

Ice_One_Guys
I agree with the comment below. This is a great sounding reissue. Sunbeam are one of the best sounding repro labels in my opinion.

Kulabandis
Somebody could help me to recognize if my copy is original or counterfeit? I bought it in 1987 and it seems like the pictures that I see here.

Gosar
Seen this copy in a local record shop going for £1000. Absolutely insane.

Shak
Is "Minty" the same as Mint? $2 is an incredible price for any copy of this press, even Fair.

Fearlessdweller
Insane... but may go up higher eventually ! Rare and great ! I found my orig copy at a garage sale in 2016 here in Canada for $5 Minty :)

Charyoll
A quick look on Popsike will show that this release is worth a solid £750 in NM/NM.The sales history here shows one reissue (I wish there was an option to alert Discogs of NAI post-sale), and another VG+/VG+ which, if the real deal, has landed someone the bargain of a lifetime.Of course, that current Spanish seller here trying to get €2,575 for his VG+/VG+ is living in cloud cuckoo land.

Stoneshaper
Same here. I don't understand why it has to be so much.

Not only is this full of great music by the treasured British 60's band Kaleidoscope, but the vinyl itself is pressed quite well. Only a slight issue which I discovered while listening and doing research on the Sunbeam press of the LP...On "Bless the Executioner", great song, at 33 seconds it skips a few seconds of the lyric and music. To be honest that kinda disappointed me, yet knowing how rare originals are and how pricey they can be this is well worth it. It is pressed well on 180 gram vinyl, the packaging is superb, and the booklet is insightful. It was pressed in the UK and they do a very good job at it. Usually represses are done cheaply (Usually U.S. copies) and this is done right. Despite the hick-up on "Bless the Executioner" this repress is a must have for Kaleidoscope/Fairfield Parlour fans. I praise Sunbeam Records for the time they put into their reissues of old bands. They are a company I'd buy any record from.

My copy has some serious visual scratches on A1, straight out of the shrinkwrap.I had similar problems with my brand new (sealed) Sunbeam copy of Tangerine Dream too.
