DISCO DE VINILO LP 33RPM
MADE IN USA
Side Trips is the 1967 debut studio album by American band Kaleidoscope. It was released in June 1967, on Epic Records BN 26304, and re-released on vinyl by Sundazed Records (2007). The album has a raw, non-limited instrumental mentality, for each member played many instruments; for example, David Lindley played guitar, banjo, fiddle, and mandolin, and Solomon Feldthouse played saz, bouzouki, dobro, vina, oud, doumbek, dulcimer, fiddle, guitar, and vocals.
After forming in 1966, the group known then as The Kaleidoscope, won a recording contract with Epic Records. They first recorded a single "Please" backed by a non-album track "Elevator Man", that was released in December 1966. The album Side Trips was released in June 1967, and an additional single was released with album cut "Why Try" backed by non-album track "Little Orphan Nannie". The album combined rock & roll with roots and world music, and contained several traditional songs including Charlie Poole's "Hesitation Blues" and Cab Calloway's signature song "Minnie the Moocher". Among other cuts, bassist Chris Darrow contributed a couple of trippy songs, "If the Night" and "Keep Your Mind Open", while Solomon Feldthouse contributed an Eastern influenced "Egyptian Gardens". Soon after the release, they re-named themselves as simply Kaleidoscope.
