gypsy soul

Every now and then I come across a track in an unexpected place which goes straight into heavy rotation, quickly evolving into a classic which defines a period in my life. This track by Tommy Bolin off his 'Private Eyes' album sounds like something Batteux wrote and is an anomaly on the record, nothing else on 'Private' sounds like it, even if there are a few other tracks worth a look in. Two thirds of the way in 'Gypsy Soul' steps into double time transforming into a breezy Latin beauty, the first slab of the track is all dreamy, sweet, Balearic Folk, and slo mo beats. I have been sitting on this record for years and had not heard any of it until a few weeks back, now it lives in the Music for Life section of my collection. Anyone heard this before? Anyone out there playing it? Sooo good!!

Great track! Try "Savannah Women' from his album Teaser, similar in that it is a latin track albeit a wee bit more up-tempo but the nonetheless still chilled and beautiful.
