    I would like to know the Portuguese translation of the last song from this GIPSY album, I can not find it to translate anywhere.

    Masterpiece

    First album I bought!

    Εξαιρετικό άλμπουμ!

    I was exposed to Gypsy’s first albumn as a teen, and despite hundred more favorites (including the Moody Blues, Yes, & Heart), "GYPSY" 1970 is my all-time favorite rock & roll albumn! I never heard this one til a few years ago! (Heard of it). GYPSY was such a unique band, characteristic of their time, yet stand-out from them all! Now I’m referring them to newer artists such as Russian rock band GRAI and 19-year-old songwriter sensation Anna Graceman. I’m not a nostalgia buff, living in the past, but Gypsy’s solid-but-imaginative sound and thoughtful lyrics comprise true rock music that should be kept in people’s awareness!

    THAT BAND DESERVED TO BE THE NEXT BEATLES!!!!
    Fantastic !!!!

    They have an upcoming gig in St. Paul, MN in August 2019, I believe. Although only 2-3 (?) of the originals are in the band, the harmonies are spot on. Check the entertainment calendar for Mancini’s for details.

    So glad I found this site. I played Gypsy on an FM radio station in the midwest in the early ’70s and wore the album out.
    Kind of angry I can’t bring them up on Spotify. But happy for the chance to hear this fabulous band again.
    Thank you for posting this!

    This was one of the best in the year of release. Still very, very, easy to listen to.

  12. Michel Grimes on December 8, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Very good, Santanaesq.

  13. TSM on December 8, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    This channel takes me right back to my days of lsd and herb so many years ago.

  14. steve55 sogood on December 8, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    Great when you come across something like this, 47 years late, but good music is just that, timeless! Agree with the Santana comparison.

  15. jose luis martinez on December 8, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    excelente!!

  16. Grant Bickerton on December 8, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    I have to agree with Bob Mauss (two years ago. 🙂 )I have played this LP ever since it came out. I was a Floyd, Sabbath, Purple fan, and didn’t actually know this band. I bought it for the cover, and boy was I canny! On my list as one of the best albums to listen to time and time again 45 plus years, and still as fresh as any music. A masterpiece. Thanks, ‘Vinyl" for posting. Cheers from Australia.

  17. RODRIGO ST on December 8, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Fantastic band! Very unique sound!!! i loved the first one (GYPSY- 1970 ) And this awesome album too!!! tks!

  18. Bernard Sparrow on December 8, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    The 1970 and 1971 albums are a real treat. Just makes you wonder how albums like The Piper at the Gates of Dawn get press when things like this are around. I like that album too, but in my my opinion, Gypsy is one of the better acts from the period and is really memorable.

  19. SKIVKISS on December 8, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Nice record TY

  20. Mark Johnson on December 8, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Man, I can hear some influence in later bands. Can’t believe I just discovered them! They were the precursors to ’70’s rock.

  21. Stéphane Genilloud on December 8, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I come to believe that this is one of the two best prog lp’s coming out of the US (where the genre oddly never really caught), the other one being Maypole.

  22. Shimmering Drums on December 8, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    👍👍👍🔥🔥🔥👏👏👏

  23. oldnukexxx on December 8, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    I tried Shazam on a Gypsy song I have on a cassette recorded off of WOWI-FM, Norfolk, in 1971. Shazam didn’t know what it was ("Around You"). These are great uploads!

  24. jeff white on December 8, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    It was 1971. So it had to have a drum solo. Mandated by law back then…

  27. Tom Hutchens on December 8, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    This album is one of 3 or 4, that when I got back to my bunk I could put on headphones and crank it up to escape the madness which was everywhere. The music combined with the lyrics made for some fine, fine music. I’ve been with them since this album, which I saw and bought 1st, then came their 1st album, then somewhere along the way I got Antithesis.

  28. colin rogers on December 8, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Any chance of a track list.

  29. Tom W on December 8, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Great record this one. Bought the Japan promo press LP some years ago in excellent condition.

  30. Christine Rogers on December 8, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    My dad, Doni Larson, is the original bass player and he told me he wrote the bass parts for this album and that Willie Weeks told him that he played the parts as he had written. However, because of all the emotion that was wrapped up in his departure from the band, I never listened to this album until recently, after the guitar player, Jim Johnson, passed away back in September. As a way to honor Jim, I have gone back and listened to all the Gypsy albums, not just the first one. I am so glad I did. I absolutely love this album.

  31. VidMag Media on December 8, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    I originally found this album at a thrift store for a dime (!!!!!!!!) and it was one of the best investments I’ve ever made in recorded
    music.

  32. Elder Mountain Dreaming on December 8, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Back in 1971 I was in 8th grade and listening to this album, but i always did have good taste in music, it comes from my grandfather and his friend who played traditional peasant slavic music, it gives you an ear for good aesthetics in music

  33. Виктор Николаевцев on December 8, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    What the assholes gave the dislikes!!! Mother fuckers. Какие же сфинктеры поставили дизлайки!!! Явный эдипов комплекс

    brilliance on every level

  35. Doug Leisy on December 8, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    almost quarterflashian!

  36. halloweenmule on December 8, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    My first copy (second hand, because the album cover would not agree to be ignored) of this album had a junk broken out near the edge, so I never heard the the whole thing until today!

  37. Michel Grimes on December 8, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Plus Tull plus B,S@T

  38. Peter Utphall on December 8, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    They are doing a show at Shaws bar on 16th and University Sept 22 3pm. They will have souvenier t-shirts for sale

  39. Skip George on December 8, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Great. Thanks

  40. Wayne Manna on December 8, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    There were so many bands recording albums in this era – a lot of bland and unoriginal sound (I might have liked it when I was 14 in 1970), some good and then some like Gypsy – top of the heap and a definite find – a bold band releasing a double album as their debut, but they pulled it off and this follow up was equally good. I never understood why this band didn’t achieve greater success. I understand that the guitar player, an excellent player and great songwriter passed away and that may have ended their shot at the big time. Still, we are left with two albums of great music and that they are still going with this material indicates how good the songs really are and that, for me, is what makes this stand apart – the quality of the songs.

  41. nighttrainist on December 8, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Gypsy has played the soundtrack in so many stages of my long life! Rosenbaum’s guitar and lyrics speak to me much and often, long after his unfortunate demise. The band is "now playing" in my mind quite frequently.

  42. 寒蝉王 on December 8, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    No wonder the bass playing is so astonishing, Willie weeks on bass

  43. Good Goat on December 8, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Gypsy & Mountain, two favs from teen age years.

  44. Lightmane on December 8, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    My friend just introduced me to Gypsy. I can’t believe they weren’t more popular back in the day. They’re SO GOOD! Gonna listen to this album now, for the first time.

  45. IOK Wasamatau on December 8, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    First two albums are GOOD STUFF! These guys went and got religious two years after this 2nd album and that was it! Funny thing is I have never found either of their first two albums in many, many thrift stores for many, many years, but I found their "Unlock the Gates" religious album several times. Wish I hadn’t. 😉

  46. James Hardy on December 8, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    I remember them well. They were from Minnesota, as was one of my Navy shipmates in 1971. He told me that they were going to be BIG!

  47. Fay Ellis on December 8, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    This

    This is not In The Garden

  48. Ryan miller on December 8, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Love this album!

  49. just music on December 8, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Been so long since l heard this ,it was nice hearing it again

  50. Alex Ander on December 8, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Amazing band. All the best, most creative music was from this period during the early 70s. Nothing these days even remotely compares to that era.
