The Friendly Persuasion –Yours Truly Jack The Ripper

The Friendly Persuasion – Apathy /Yours Truly Jack The Ripper–Mac-A-Lynne PRSD 2230 (1974 US)

The Friendly Persuasion seem to have been a surburban Detroit act and this was possibly their only release. Although featuring organ and mellotron Yours Truly Jack The Ripper sits on the right side of Gothic Prog thanks to its reliance on the hook and the restraint shown. No schlock horror here, but a damn catchy novelty opus. The A side is pants though….
