Leafing through Ken Garner’s ‘In Session Tonight’ book, I noticed a UK act called Gypsy (i.e. not the US west coast one) who racked up no less than 10 BBC radio sessions between 1971-73, all but one for Peel and Bob Harris.
I’d never heard of them.
Discogs tells me they made two albums and a handful of singles for United Artists – records released in the US as ‘English Gypsy’. The members were David McCarthy, Robin Pizer, Rod Read, John Knapp and Moth Smith.
No, me neither…
Anyone else heard of these people? Did they live locally to Maida Vale or something?
