John Morgan - Kaleidoscope (1971 uk, remarkable heavy blues folk psych with prog shades, 2007 japan remaster)



Formed from the ashes of psychedelic blues legends Spirit Of John Morgan, this talented yet arguably overlooked keyboard player continued his career with the underground indie label Carnaby Records. However, the arrival of Kaleidoscope in 1971 failed to achieve the applause it deserved, leaving Morgan in the midst of progressive rock's obscured past.
