In this dogmatic view, the likes of Jefferson Airplane and The Doors mattered quite less than those they influenced. The psychedelic experience, went the argument, was stronger on the periphery, and the outsiders who populated the rim created quirky masterpieces that deserved space in an already overflowing canon.
Song of a Gypsy was quickly included, the scant original copies that Otis Blackwell Singin The Blues were suddenly very in demand, and, even then, in the days before eBay, exchanging hands for thousands of dollars.
But these were pontificating record collectors after all, conversing with each other. So Damon's Jorge Ben O Bidu Silencio No Brooklin on love, longing, questing and sorrow became spiritual fodder for a few; those fortunate enough to hear of Song of a Gypsy's existence but not quite fortunate enough to own a copy of the album had to imagine the music contained within the original Ankh Records' textured, gatefold sleeve.
Confounding descriptions such as "tranced out gypsy Arabian acid fuzz crooner psych with deep mysterious vocals, an amazing soundscape and excellent songwriting" from Acid Archives' - the Lonely Planet of psychedelic record collecting review of the album didn't help Damon Song Of The Gypsy.
And the shoddy bootlegs that came about in the early '90s only spread Damon's music - none of the backstory that afforded this singular album came into view. Features Interviews Lists.
