Gypsy, a progressive rock band from the midwest, rather obscure but charted on Billboard at a peak of #64 with this hit off their 1970 self-titled debut double album. Gypsy Queen - Part 1 & Part 2.

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Richard Foss wrote of the album "Though nothing else on Gypsy's debut album came quite up to the standard of the opening number, the whole album is enjoyable for connoisseurs of jazzy progressive rock... In retrospect, it's hard to believe that this debut didn't make a bigger splash when it was first released. Gypsy's work has held up very well compared to most albums from this era, and is still a delightful listen."





The comment "jazzy progressive rock" reminded me of Haley's attempt to merge many different genres into a "retro sound with a modern twist". Gypsy Queen still has a relevant sound today and I am confident Haley will make the same kind of music...a sound that stands the test of time.

No Roger Waters in this, but there is no denying Gilmour's vocal and guitar playing brilliance. Very under rated for his guitar skills. His style is instantly recognisable.

Thanks for posting that Buzz, I wasn't familiar with the band. I hear various elements of the bands from that era. The organ kicks in at 2:20 and sounds a lot like Santana (e.g. Evil Ways). I imagine that album ended up in the bargain bins along with Blue Cheer and others. Nowadays things like YouTube give a clear indication of the power of promotion to get a song heard (I'm thinking of Free and how TPTB can throttle referrals to the video up and down with potent effects).

______ Somewhat related to that. . .

I remember Bob Seger was kicking around Michigan and the midwest in the 60s and early 70s with some moderate successes (e.g. Ramblin' Gamblin' Man went to 17). He didn't make it big until 1976 with "Night Moves." Seger wrote the song "Turn the Page" in 1972 while in a diner in South Dakota where he and the band had gotten hassled, but it got little attention until he had made it big.

Early on he also wrote a song called "Rosalie" about the program director at CKLW, a big wattage am top 40 station located in Windsor Canada that could be heard in much of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and points beyond. The song is about the power she had to give you a shot --or not.


Regarding Rosalie Trombley:
Quote:Trombley served as Music Director from 1968 through 1984, at which time the station changed formats.

The term "crossover hit" owes much of its definition to Rosalie's uncanny ability to pick artists from urban & rock playlists and cross them over to CKLW and their CHR Top 40 format, which in that era of radio, was the most listened-to format as defined by cumulative audience listenership and reach.[citation needed]

Trombley is legendary in the history of AM Top 40 radio and was known for her amazing ability to predict and pick future hits.[1] Artists that have publicly acknowledged her pivotal role in their success through early belief and airplay include, but are not limited to: Alice Cooper, Elton John, Bob Seger, Earth, Wind & Fire, Tony Orlando and Dawn, The Guess Who, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Chicago, Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, Gordon Lightfoot, The Stylistics, Anne Murray, Parliament/Funkadelic, Aerosmith and many, many others.[citation needed] A 1973 Billboard article specifically notes her role in promoting the Skylark song "Wildflower", playing it for over three months as an album cut before its release as a single.[2]

Seger immortalized her in his 1972 song "Rosalie" from his Back in '72 album. "She's got the tower, She's got the power / Rosalie, Rosalie Trombley" are two lines from the lyrics of that song. The song has been covered by the band Thin Lizzy, on their 1975 album Fighting. Trombley reportedly refused to allow the station to air the song, threatening to quit if the station added it to its playlist; thus, CKLW never played it, although the song did receive airplay on other Detroit stations.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosalie_Trombley

Tony Orlando on Rosalie (1st two minutes) gives a little insight into the relationship between key radio stations and records sales back in the day:


In 1964 CKLW had changed it's format.."the object was to fit 18 songs into each hour." Later: "MTV was CKLW...."

I still remember those jingles (and extremely obnoxious brief newscasts.)

Quote:By 1973, with twelve million listeners, it was the third-largest station in North America. “The culture, when I got there, was, ‘if you’ve made it this far, you can pretty much walk on water,’ ” recalls deejay Pat Holiday, who arrived as a green twenty-two year old from Hartford in 1970. “No one was going to hold you back on shore.”

...From the 100 to 150 records she received each week, Trombley chose no more than six to add to the playlist. “If there was a record I wasn’t that interested in but they [the reps] believed in, I’d say, ‘Show me,’ ” says Trombley. “I’d tell them, ‘Take it out to Grand Rapids or Flint or Lansing. See if you can get some airplay out there. Get the thing started, if it’s gonna start.’ ”

I knew the beginning of Hit the Ground Running reminded me of something.




RE: Music Videos - john - 05-08-2012

Here's an ancestor to "Oh My" that was famously covered by the Blues Brothers. (Hat tip to Thom0065 at IDF).




RE: Music Videos - john - 05-08-2012

I think Keep Coming Back and maybe some other songs on t Haley's album have a Hall and Oates vibe.
