KALEIDOSCOPE: 'four born professionals'

Here's the rare press release that Fontana sent out in August 1967, to announce the imminent mega-stardom of Kaleidoscope. Enjoy!


  1. Thanks for posting this. I am stumped as to why Jenny Artichoke wasn't a huge hit. A more commercial-sounding, radio-friendly slice of brilliant pop you could not wish for. Perhaps if it had come out in advance of the LP things might have been different, although I'm not sure when it was recorded, early on or between the 2 albums?

  2. Jenny Artichoke was the third single and came out about a year after the 1st album...yep, so catchy you'd swear it was a huge hit and apparently it was played a lot on the radio but it certainly never became a hit...there are two Spanish versions too, one from Spain and the other from Argentina!
