The Gospelfolk - Prodigal (1969)

 
A major ‘60s garage/psych rarity here. Even the embarrassingly inept Emblem production values cannot stifle the raw punk enthusiasm of these five young men from Scotland. Within the genre that includes the likes of Them, The Troggs, The Chocolate Watch Band, The Standells, and all those other bands that appear on Nuggets compilations, The Gospelfolk have provided a solid Christian response. A track by track analysis is in order here. The title cut uses a classic ‘60s punk Farfisa organ motif as it tells the story of the prodigal son’s return. The psychy raw fuzz and dissonant organ of ‘Emily’ follows, sounding like Velvet Underground playing in your closet with the door shut. The massive reverb of ‘No Sad Tomorrow’ makes it a garage rocker’s dream, while ‘Be In Time’s savage fuzz riff comes across as a sanctified electric ‘Wild Thing’. ‘Cosmopolitan World’ is swinging jangly pop, then on to the rudimentary basement jam of ‘Thank You Lord’. What remains are the album’s four ballads and oddly enough the strongest cuts on the lp, all vibrant with the warmth of raw electric guitars, solemn organ, and endearing harmonies. Exceedingly rare with a couple copies having sold for over $1200. Wonderful cover of the band playing in some cheesy hole-in-the ground.  (Ken Scott - Archivist)
