Gypsy Eyes. " Gypsy Eyes " or " Gipsy Eyes " is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and performed by the Jimi Hendrix Experience for the album Electric Ladyland. Subsequently, it was released as the B-side of the " Crosstown Traffic " single, which reached number 52 on the US Billboard Hot and number 37 on the UK Official Singles Chart.
And it sold so well that a single-LP follow-up, The Essential Jimi Hendrix, Vol. 2, appeared from Reprise in , this one covering the few major studio bases left untouched by its predecessor, along with an acknowledgment of Hendrix's legacy of live recordings ("Wild Thing," "The Star Spangled Banner," etc.). As an addendum to the double set.
’Electric Ladyland’ is a very short () piece by Jimi to define the song’s rhythmic structure. ‘Gypsy Eyes’ is an earlier version of this song, though still good, whose long-winded recording caused Jimi and Chas Chandler to fall out. ‘Room Full of Mirrors’ is a very short demo () with just Jimi and a harmonica player/5().
The true story is that of a messed up woman who died young. While Jimi's mother was pregnant, his father was fighting in WWII. Jimi's mom had an affair with a guy named Johnny. Hence, when Jimi was born and his dad Al was fighting in the war, Jimi was named Johnny Allen Hendrix. Jimi's mother basically abandoned Jimi as a baby with relatives.
