Gypsy - Gypsy 1970

Formed in 1964, this quintet began as a Minneapolis-based pop band called The UNDERBEATS. They eventually relocated to Los Angeles and, changing their name to GYPSY, began pursuing a heavier, more complex sound, blending SANTANA-like guitar and organ riffs with vocals and arrangements reminiscent of early CHICAGO. They released two excellent albums on a small label in the early 70’s then switched to RCA who (it is said) pushed the band in a more commercial direction. Consequently, they lost their progressive edge and the subsequent two releases are no more than a collection of average, mid-70’s radio-friendly pop.

Gypsy's debut is just a double LP of radio-friendly commercial rock, which not quite popular indeed. Not particularly hard rock, not significantly prog rock, not also a blues rock, and not even close to heavy rock fiesta. Just an average polished pop rock.

Gypsy's second In The Garden (1971) is another polished ear-friendly rock with Latin and funk touch. Musically, their sophomore is better than debut, but still inessential nor interesting.

Both albums contents 20 songs in 1 hour 44 minutes.
