All I know about Hackamore Brick is all it says on the sleeve notes of the Nuggets LP this track is from...
While Hackamore Brick's 'Got A Gal Named Wilma' dates from 1971, it easily could pass as a 1960s artifact. Among the more obscure groups present, their only LP aroused some attention from Richard Meltzer's rave review in 'Rolling Stone', when he likened their sound to that of the Zombies. Says Richard, "Live, they were more guitar heavy, and had a sound that was like an early 60s psychedelic band. The fact that they couldn't find a regular drummer probably prevented them from playing much outside of Brooklyn".
I like this song very much; it has a special place in my heart because I put it on the mix tape I gave to Mrs H when we first got together. Everything else on the cassette was contemporary stuff, but this is what she liked best.
