Fairfield Parlour - From Home To Home (1970)

Fairfield Parlour - From Home To Home (1970)

The Fairfield Parlour From Home to Home album is a continuation of the Kaleidoscope career, with the same lineup. The major difference is that the sound is less psychedelic and more folk-progressive oriented, with great use of acoustic guitar, flute and keyboards (especially the mellotron strings). There are some mellancholic songs and some more upbeat, but the overall song is lightweight

Aries, By Your Bedside, Soldier of The Flesh, I Will Always Feel The Same, Chalk on the Wall and Monkey are mellancholic songs, all of them are beautiful and Daltrey's voice fits perfectly the mellancholic songs, being one of the best voices of the progressive rock for mellow songs. The keyboards and occasional flutes are superb, mainly the mellotron strings.In My Box, Free, Glorious House of Arthur are more upbeat and rock, with good guitar work. There are mellotron strings too in most of the songs.
