CD Reviews

4.5 star lost classic psyche folk prog band!!!
Elan Bodwick | las vegas | 04/06/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Fairfield formed from the ashes of Kaliedoscope- a pink floyd influenced psyche band from england whose two cds are excellent and also rare british Psychedelia. After splitting they simply changed their name and became more folky and "progish" with mellotrons and orchestration. Essentially this really sounds like Syd Barrett joining the Moody Blues- singer songwriter Peter Daltry seems to have taken Syds quirky lyrics and arrangement style and perhaps even improved upon them after Barrett disappeared into obscurity. This is right on par with early floyd but especially early Moody Blues- acoustic guitars- a mix nonsensical and reflective endearing lyrics- odd strings and found sounds- trippy percussion and plenty of mellotron and flutes. Really a time period piece that still sounds unique if not a bit dated. I happen to love it and recommend it alongside the aforementioned groups. Its only recently been available and qualifies as a lost classic for sure. My out of print jewel case version has only four bonus tracks which all seam into the original material very well. Quite a rare find and fans include David Bowie- and a young Elton John played on their also rare White Faced Lady followup which is also very good. This will suprise even your most knowledgable music friends. It never rocks out though it has moments of surging buildups and though it is generally mellow it is never boring. I feel honored to be the first reviewer of this near perfect recording."
Very good

"The always-great quality of the Vertigo cannon never fails to amaze me, and this album is no exception.

At times this band sounds like the late-60s Kinks, at other times, a less jazzy Fairport Convention, or a more jazzy Zombies. It has a warm, folky sound throughout and the singing is excellent all around. The songs range from very well composed to astoundingly beautiful.

Great for Vertigo collectors and music fans alike. Well worth having.
