Les Gypsies de Pétion Ville – Patience
Macaya 1973

I’m still on the lookout for their first album, Les Gypsies
with the great Robert Martino was such a wonderful compas
group back in the seventies. This is album number II from 1973
called ‘Patience’. We had us a couple of the other records with
them from 1973, 1975 and 1976. ‘It took a whole lot of hard work
and patience, sparing no effort to reach the ultimate state of their
abilities’. Get it, spread it and listen with pleasure ..

Ik ben nog steeds op zoek naar hun eerste album, de Gypsies
met gitarist en bandleider Robert Martino was zo’n geweldige
groep in de jaren zeventig. Dit is hun tweede plaat uit 1973,
‘Patience’ genaamd. We hadden al een paar van hun andere
elpees uit 1973, 1975 en 1976. ‘Het kostte ze veel hard werk
en geduld om de ultieme staat van hun kunnen te bereiken’.
Slurp weer binnen, luister en deel met je vrienden ..
