Cher was already a star when this album (originally titled simply Cher) was released in 1971, thanks to her work with husband Sonny and also on her own with a handful of folk pop solo hits in the '60s. But with Gypsys , Cher's mega-selling Vegas torch singer persona was launched. Highlighted by the sexually ambiguous "The Way of Love" and the racy title cut.
