For as long as there's been a fascination for the records of the 1960s, the Belfast Gypsies' Swedish-only 1967 LP has been a highly desirable addition to any respectable garage-beat record collection. The band was formed in December 1965 by ex-Them member John (Pat) McAuley with the intention of continuing on with the raw sound of the early Them. After establishing a serious line-up, the new group recorded
 
   
   
   
   
 
three tracks at their own expense in February 1966 at KPS Studios in North London. While one of these tracks seems to be lost forever, the other two have just now been rediscovered on a ancient acetate. These two unheard nuggets are released here for the first time. And at last the full story of the Belfast Gypsies emerges from the memoirs of former band member Ken McLeod.
 
         
 
"The sound is perfect and the music is fantastic! 
This is British Rhythm & Blues at its best - tough and uncompromising!"

Mike Stax, Ugly Things #23
