Marcia Griffiths — Gypsy Man

Alright! This one is for us ladies, girls, women who still remember the time when the sparks were flying and ’em little devils were stirring inside us at the sight of a guy that caught our attention … I mean way, way back in the day, of course.

The queen of Reggae, Marcia Griffiths, is one of my all time favorite female singers. I just like her straightforward way of delivery; no over-singing, no over-dramatizing, no girly oohs and such — but all woman. Listen to her telling the story. She’s painting such a convincing picture of what is happening in front of her, you almost feel like watching the scene yourself.

Here’s Marcia’s take on the Curtis Mayfield classic Gypsy Woman, the song he  composed for the Impressions in 1964.
