Success comes sometimes easier to exiles than to those who stay at home. This the story of Sullivan's Gypsies. These four Irish boys emigrated to Canada in the last five years, and before arriving in Canada did not know each other. They met through attending Folk Clubs and suddenly realised that when they played together, the sound they produced was very commercial. In 1967 they formed Sullivan's Gypsies and in Toronto or in fact in any Irish Club in Canada, the name of Sullivan's Gypsies is sure to draw a full house. Some people have compared them with the other successful immigrant group The Irish Rovers, but there is no doubt when listening to this L.P. that they have a style entirely of their own. They play all the instruments on this L.P. and get a feeling of warmth and excitement doing so. From the start of side 1 with their charming little song "The Leprechaun", with its fairylike story to the rousing number "Whiskey in the Jar", they project this wonderful feeling of enjoyment.
This their first album and we are sure that the enjoyment they have had in making this will undoubtedly be projected over to you.
