    very good old band……………………..

    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!

    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.

  7. Good Goat on June 23, 2021 at 1:33 am

    Gypsy & Mountain, two favs from teen age years.

  8. Skip George on June 23, 2021 at 1:34 am

    Great. Thanks

  9. Good Goat on June 23, 2021 at 1:34 am

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

    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!

    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.

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

  13. jeff white on June 23, 2021 at 1:39 am

    Excellent Unheralded Band from the 70’s. Love their albums.

  14. steve55 sogood on June 23, 2021 at 1:40 am

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

  15. William Colville on June 23, 2021 at 1:40 am

    great album.

  16. Mark Johnson on June 23, 2021 at 1:42 am

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

  17. Gear Hedd on June 23, 2021 at 1:44 am

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

  18. IOK Wasamatau on June 23, 2021 at 1:48 am

    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. 😉

  19. Lightmane on June 23, 2021 at 1:48 am

    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.

  20. Guitars and Stuff Too on June 23, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Jim Johnson is my Great Uncle, I just recently bought a book about the band and am learning a lot

  21. Michel Grimes on June 23, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Plus Tull plus B,S@T

  22. Michel Grimes on June 23, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Very good, Santanaesq.

  23. RODRIGO ST on June 23, 2021 at 1:51 am

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

  24. David Gibson on June 23, 2021 at 1:51 am

    First album I bought!

  25. jose luis martinez on June 23, 2021 at 1:51 am

    excelente!!

  26. Liliane Lilly on June 23, 2021 at 1:54 am

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

  27. Drifter Music Group on June 23, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Time Stamps:
    0:00 "Around You"
    5:34 "Reach Out Your Hand"
    8:20 "As Far As You Can See (As Much As You Can Feel)" (Rosenbaum with intro by Lordan/Walsh)

    27:14 "Here in the Garden II"
    30:23 "Blind Man"
    34:33 "Time Will Make It Better" (Walsh)

  28. nighttrainist on June 23, 2021 at 1:56 am

    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.

  29. just music on June 23, 2021 at 1:56 am

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

  30. halloweenmule on June 23, 2021 at 1:56 am

    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!

  31. Wally on June 23, 2021 at 1:56 am

    I was turned onto this group back in 73. I immediately fell in love with the "Hammond B3 Keyboard" sound…

  32. Shimmering Drums on June 23, 2021 at 2:00 am

    👍👍👍🔥🔥🔥👏👏👏

  33. Bernard Sparrow on June 23, 2021 at 2:00 am

    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.

  34. Doug Leisy on June 23, 2021 at 2:04 am

    almost quarterflashian!

  35. tom kohls on June 23, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Their music is …..Full on Masterpiece after masterpiece. Listening since HS in the 70’s

  36. Wayne Manna on June 23, 2021 at 2:05 am

    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.

  37. 寒蝉王 on June 23, 2021 at 2:08 am

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

  38. SKIVKISS on June 23, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Nice record TY

  39. johan on June 23, 2021 at 2:09 am

    Εξαιρετικό άλμπουμ!

  40. robert angelo on June 23, 2021 at 2:09 am

    wonderful……..truly superb !!!

  41. Tom Hutchens on June 23, 2021 at 2:13 am

    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.

  42. Elder Mountain Dreaming on June 23, 2021 at 2:15 am

    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

  45. Alex Ander on June 23, 2021 at 2:18 am

    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.

  46. Виктор Николаевцев on June 23, 2021 at 2:19 am

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

  47. Stéphane Genilloud on June 23, 2021 at 2:19 am

    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.

  48. James Hardy on June 23, 2021 at 2:20 am

    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!

  49. Ryan miller on June 23, 2021 at 2:21 am

    Love this album!

  50. Christine Rogers on June 23, 2021 at 2:22 am

    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.
