CD Reviews

GYPSY-UNSUNG HEROES
Mister Q | BLAINE, Minnesota United States | 06/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To answer the other reviewer: Enrico is gone, passed away in 1979. This music will always get played on my stereo, no dust will collect on any Gypsy music! Unbelievable that national press has not picked up on this band. Sweetwater? A whole VH1 show on that? What we need is a VH1 special on this band. Talk about a band with SO much talent, yet no luck. The original born under a bad sign band. Band members: Bill Lordan (later with Robin Trower), James Walsh, Enrico Rosenbaum (RIP), Randy Cates, Doni Larson, Jim Johnson, and Jay Epstein. Sometimes sounds like Santana, but with wonderful vocal harmonies. The first three albums are priceless, stunning works of art. You can't go wrong purchasing Gypsy, In the Garden, or Antithesis. Worth every penny. More Gypsy details at: www.midwesttribute.com"
A classic, timeless album

"I first heard Gypsy in the fall of 1970......Gypsy Queen Part I. Being a young musician myself, I was impressed by the acapella harmony beginning...the hard rock sound with Santana-like percussion during James Walsh's great Hammond B-3 solo. A friend bought the 8 track four months later and I became entranced with it. It was the very first album to combine almost all elements....classical, rock, jazz and country with powerful, moving lyrics and beautiful harmonies. I thought the songs combined to tell a story but was told by a relative of one of the band members ( James Walsh's brother-in-law ) I was lucky enough to meet that wasn't the case.
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."
A great, overlooked band

"[...]
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."
