GYPSY ROSE – Rosary Of Tears [1988-1991 Outtakes & Unreleased Recordings] (2018)
“Rosary Of Tears [1988-1991 Outtakes & Unreleased Recordings]” is a collection of Canadian melodic hard rockers GYPSY ROSE demos & outtakes most of them recorded in 1991, after their debut album ‘Prey’.
These unreleased songs were supposed to be on the second album from the band that never happened.
Finally they are available to the fans for the first time ever.
This cult Canadian band originally recorded their first album on RCA/Simmons records in 1990, produced by Gene Simmons itself. The record sold pretty well, but the label dropped Gypsy Rose soon after.
The first 10 tracks here are pre-production tapes – pretty good sound quality – recorded to shop a new deal for their second album.
The three last songs are demos from 1988 and 1989, a couple of them home-made, but a good listen to check what the band was doing at the time.
A very good, talented group, this is material for collectors and fans of classic late ’80s melodic hard rock.
