Album Review

This CD, in places, just cranks it up and spits out a wall of undiluted rock and roll. Straight ahead full speed ahead and tell everything to get out of our way. "Gypsy Blood," and "Dancin' on Top of the World," are two cuts that really stand out in this vein. A couple of the tracks just seem to be languishing in a daze as if they've suffered a concussion, and can't decide which way to go. This CD is produced by Dave Edmunds, and I like a lot of his work because when it hits, it hits hard. However, when it misses it leaves you scratching your head wondering. The band is tight, just sometimes lacking that guiding hand. The hard-charging "Courage" alone makes this a worthwhile disc, and there is more than just that track to pick the listener up.

Great Album!

Gypsey Blood is great start to finish. I bought it back in '87 and loved it. Recently I re-discovered Mason Ruffner and Gypsey Blood via I-Tunes it still holds up. This guy is a gifted guitarist...

Great Album and Artist!

My dad had this album when I was about 10 years old and I loved it then. Still love it now! Courage is one of my favorites on this album.

Gypsy Blood

The title track from the CD of the same name is just smoking hot..great lyric, incredible vocal performance, and guitar work that just kills. This is the perfect single. Don't know how big a hit it was when it first came out, but not big enough...Where is this guy now?

Mason Ruffner grew up in a Protestant household whose code of behavior was as strict as any in a Southern Baptist home, and one of the family's cardinal rules was to refrain from such "sinful" things as dancing. So at 17, he took off from his family's Fort Worth home and set out for Southern California to sample all the things that he'd been warned were sinful and bad for him -- girls, alcohol, drugs, and music. He eventually came to the conclusion that he wanted more than the freewheeling surfer...
