The Gypsies (2) (Baltimore, Md)
1957 - Why / Young Girl To Calypso (Atlas/Angeltone 1073)
The Gypsies' "Why"/"Young Girl to Calypso" is another rather appealing Atlas pairing which receiveed airplay only in their native Baltimore. Atlas, one of the myriad small independent labels in New York, was owned by Tommy Robinson.
Originally from Detroit, Robinson was one of the few blacks in New York at that time who owned a record company (Lexy "Flap" Hanford and Bobby Robinson - no relation - were others). Atlas had been in business since 1951, but had only recently started recording vocal groups.
