Editor's note: now this is the way a gypsy album should be compiled: from all around the world. Each geographic sector is given two examples and the wide spectrum of styles is obvious. Personally I prefer the more stripped down and festive songs -- which is not in my style -- but is how I picture most gypsies, whether that's right or wrong.
