Marrakesh –The Prodigal Son Returns

Marrakesh –The Prodigal Son Returns/Let Me Down Easy –Bell 1325 (1973 UK)

The Prodigal Son Returns opens with an intro lifted from The Easybeats’ Good Time, the vocals in the verse are quite raspy and the chorus recalls T.Rex in much the same way as Chunky or Hobnail. It’s not Glam per se, but a memorable straightforward Pop Rocker that I often find myself returning to. Their previous single I Don’t Wanna Say Goodnight (Bell 1315) is also good, but more in a Pop vein with a slight Faces feel.
