I discovered this kind of title while I was surfing the internet - the band's name is a typeface from New York's typesetting service Photo-Lettrering, Inc., on the album cover designed by Herry Epstein and William Duvell.

 

Conceivably, it could be a variant of Glaser's Baby Teeth from 1966, with some details in glyphs including the N, like in the NBC logo from 1974 to 1979.

Chances are it’s lettering based on Bosco Silhouette. This design by Alfred R. Bosco was added to Photo-Lettering’s library sometime before 1965 (and likely considerably earlier). C, E, L, N are a match. The H is probably custom, as Silhouette’s H looks much like an X. With some stretching and adding counters/notches to D, R, S, you’d get there.

Bosco was born in Naples, Italy. The design echoes elements found in Italian Art Deco lettering.

Sorry, not finding a match. I suspect it is custom lettering.
