Gypsy Rose were a Canadian Hard Rock band formed in the late 80s that caught the attention of Gene Simmons on his newfound label Simmons Records that was operating through RCA. In 1990 the band had released their highly acclaimed debut album "Prey" (produced by Mr. Simmons himself) and they quickly became a strong name in the label so much that many would place high hopes in the band thinking they could become the next Danger Danger or even the next Skid Row. Eventually in 1991 things started to fall apart and the band didn't release the second album splitting up shortly after. The reason for a split up at this time in Rock history is a cliche but so real for the Hard Rock/Hair bands of the era: Band tension and lack of support from the label due to the change of the music climate (Grunge was in). You've heard this story a million times before and most probably lived it. But this melodic brand of Hard Rock survived crawling through the desolate mid to late 90's until it exploded again in the new millennium in a more underground and sectarian spirit that makes possible GYPSY ROSE to be back again touring and have released all these rare tracks on physical digital format (yes, good old CD)!
PROGAOR (in collaboration with Michael Ross and longtime fan Mikael Svensson) proudly presents a compilation of early Gypsy Rose demos plus the previous Michael Ross AOR projects Shattered Heart and Secret Affair. Presented in a 16-page booklet that includes band biography (part 1), lyrics, rare photos and song commentaries from Mr. Ross himself, these seminal recordings were carefully remastered from the old tapes. The wait is over, finally the vaults were open, an absolute delight to all the fans!
