Gypsy signed with Metromedia records and released their first album in 1970.
It was a double album containing thirteen songs, with several of them running between six to eleven minutes in length. It was rare for groups to release a double album, especially as their first album, in the early seventies. (Only one group prior to them - Chicago - had released a double album as their first album.)
Also, with most of their songs longer than three to four minutes, Gypsy was not going to get a lot of airplay on Top 40 radio. But, according to James Walsh, there were two songs from this album released as singles - "Gypsy Queen (Part 1)" and "Dead and Gone". "Gypsy Queen" did make it into the Billboard Top 100 for a brief period of time. "Dead and Gone" was edited heavily from its eleven minute length on the album and received limited airplay on Top 40 stations.
The other songs on the album did receive some airplay on progressive "underground" FM radio stations like KSHE95. The songs were filled with great keyboard and guitar work. The vocals were also tight and in perfect harmony.
To this day, this album is a favorite among the group's fans.

Gypsy's second album titled "In the Garden" was released in 1971 also on Metromedia Records. This was a single album with only one long track on it - "As Far As You Can See (As Much As You Can Feel)" - which was over twelve minutes long. Again, the songs on this album all had the "Gypsy sound". No singles were released from this album.

Metromedia never did promote the band heavily. The first two Gypsy albums soon went out of print when Metromedia Records fell on hard times. After going out of print, Gypsy's first two albums became very collectable and commanded high prices for the remainder of the seventies.

In 1972, Gypsy signed with RCA Records and released the album "Antithesis". This was a single album and contained a number of songs that received airplay. There were no lengthy tracks on this album, most of the songs were between three to five minutes long. But there a
