I Luv Wight was a confusing twist to the already confusing discography of the British psychedelic band Kaleidoscope. In 1970, just after Kaleidoscope changed their name to Fairfield Parlour, they recorded a single for Philips, "Let the World Wash In"/"Medieval Masquerade," under the pseudonym of I Luv Wight. A typical hippie-ish folk psych-pop Kaleidoscope/Fairfield Parlour composition, the A-side was intended as the theme song for the Isle of Wight festival that year. Adding to its cumbersome details, although it was written by Peter Daltrey and Eddie Pumer of Fairfield Parlour, it was credited to the pseudonyms Newens and Baker. However, it was not used as the festival's theme after all. Both "Let the World Wash In" and the B-side, the instrumental "Medieval Masquerade," were reissued as bonus tracks on the double-CD set The Fairfield Parlour Years, which includes both Fairfield Parlour albums.
