Kaleidoscope Discography

Kaleidoscope were formed sometime in 1965 or 1966, initially as the Baghdad Blues Brothers, in Los Angeles. The members of the group were from a diverse range of musical backgrounds and this was reflected in the music and the instruments that the group played. Two of the original members of the group left after the release of the first two LPs. The third album maintained the hit and miss, adventurous eclecticism of the first two but the fourth was a disappointment possibly due to intervention from their record company, and the group disbanded shortly after it's release in 1970. Two reunions have taken place involving at least three of the originally line-up; both led to the release of album, one in 1976 and one in 1991.
