“Sign Of A Gypsy Queen” lyrics
Lorence William Hud was born in 1947 in Saskatchewan. He signed with A&M Records in 1972 and released a self-titled album that year. The single from his debut album, “Sign of the Gypsy Queen”, was his most successful charting single at #16 on the RPM charts and #9 on CKLG. He would release seven more singles between 1973 and 1982. However, none of them cracked the Top 30. The Canadian band, April Wine, had a Top 40 hit in Canada with “Sign of the Gypsy Queen” in 1981.
