Talk about snakebit! This band has some tough luck. The original "born under a bad sign" band. How about great lyrics, fine balanced musicianship, and fabulous vocal harmonies for starters? With all that talent, yet let down by bad management and 70's shifting taste in music (disco), plus internal problems. But this band almost made it big. Check out a real gem. Best in their genre.
I saw Gypsy in concert, opening for the Guess Who in 1973 in Lincoln, NE. THey were every bit as good live as on record. I left when the Guess Who came on, they couldn't compare.
I was disappointed that the band didn't achieve widespread fame and recognition and disbanded so quickly ....and saddened to learn of Enrico Rosenbaum's death in 1979.
Gypsy quite simply was....is a work of genius.
If you are looking for an example of what great music came out of the late sixties and early seventies, you can't go wrong with Gypsy. Highly recommended.
I bought Gypsy's first album in 1971 after I heard it at a friend's house. I was nineteen years old then. It immediately became one of my favorite ablums. Truly wonderful music. One 28 year old reviewer here hit it right when he said they don't make music like this anymore. I still have it on vinyl, but unfortunately it's very scratchy. Guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and pay the $45 tag. It's well worth it!!!

Probably the single greatest double album that went under the radar in the history of rock. Extremely diverse music on one album and great harmony in their voices. Read morePublished on December 12, 2013 by widefoot
not only did I love this album when I first heard it in 1971, but I still do. I don't believe any band has had a better first album. Read morePublished on January 14, 2008 by James M. Coleman
I heard this album for the first time in the fall of 1973 and have been a fan ever since. Some of the best harmonies you'll ever hear and the arrangements are exceptional. Read morePublished on August 23, 2007 by T.Williams
I got this album the first time in 1972 (a school-friend of mine sold it). My brother destroyed it two years later, and I got it back 13 years later on my trip through the usa in a... Read morePublished on December 27, 2004 by Ramo Ujhelyi
