Introducing Simtec & Wylie

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 24 September 1971

IF YOUR'E looking for an ultra-funky record, then Simtec & Wylie's 'Gotta Get Get Over The Hump' is perfect for you. The record is currently leaping up the American charts, although at one time it looked as though it could miss. Wylie explained: "The record was actually first issued back in May and for a few weeks it looked as though it was going to miss. But the radio stations stayed with us. You know, we were hovering on the fringe of the charts and just needed that final push."
