Gypsy were one of the great attractions at the Isle Of Wight 1969 Festival.
A couple of years later, they released their debut eponymous album which drew favourable comparisons with Buffalo Springfield and Moby Grape.
Gypsy's sound had a unique vocal and guitar style, and the tight arrangements of a band that not only played together but grew up together.
The Romany Collection brings together the long awaited reissue of Gypsy's first album, plus both sides of their debut single and six previously unreleased studio tracks.
This album was compiled with the full co-operation of the band, who provided photographs for the 8 page booklet and assisted with the extensive liner notes.
