Like a London Bus, before you know it, there's three 'Gotta Get Over You's all at once!

So it's been a little while since we had the original release of 'Gotta Get Over You' (see review HERE) that was followed by what we thought were the definitive North Street West collective remixes: but just as the fireworks are warming up, here's the double joy of a Wade Teo double version?

The excellence of the Beedle/Morris/Wallace trio give us vocal, dub and instrumental versions (see review HERE) have been surpassed by Wade Teo as he imaginatively disco-funks up this track, that was heavily pure Leee in the first place, as a vocal and instrumental.

And we know who Robb and Leee versons, so what about Wade Teo?  He's got some big housey names on a palmar├Ęs having worked with Byron Stingly, Steve 'Silk' Hurley, Joe Smooth and more recently Kenny Dope has remixed a track that's featured Kameelah Waheed (taking a break from Colour & Pitch - see review HERE and sister label's 'Proxima Ebony' (Joseph Malik's massive summer album on Ramrock Red Records - see review HERE)

It's hard to believe that it's been 40 years since Lee and Imagination burst upon us (both on radio and Top Of The Pops) or that Robb has been working himself as a singer/songwriter, musician, composer, arranger for nearly as long and has worked with some of the very best in soul/jazz on both sides of the pond.
