Cookin' On 3 Burners - This Girl feat. Kylie Auldist
Back in 2009, Freestyle released 'This Girl' by Cookin' On 3 Burners on a 45 single ahead of the full length album 'Soul Messin'.
This Girl featured renowned Aussie songstress Kylie Auldist (known for her work with The Bamboos, Polyester & Mega Bias) who joined forces with the boys and provided the focus for this mellow, beautiful and incredibly catchy song.
Shimmering horns ride over this laid back, deep soul classic, the super catchy melody found a home amongst fans of deep funk, classic 60s & Northern soul aficionados. Quickly selling out of its first, second and third vinyl pressing, the 45 went on to become one of those records that ended up going for quite 'silly money' on various rare record websites, which whilst flattering, did put the vinyl single somewhat out of reach of those not willing to part with a fat wad of cash in order to secure a copy!
So, now in 2013, Freestyle have bowed to public pressure and re-released this fantastic soul classic again on beautiful vinyl once more.
Upon its original release, everybody from Jazz FM's Peter Young through to BBC Radio 2's Mark Lamarr went just a little bit crazy about the song - and in 2013 this unforgettable touching song is getting even more people hot under the collar all over again!
For those of you whose vinyl & turntable days are a distant memory - of course - you can also grab this classic 45 from all the usual digital outlets.
