Cold Case

A 2 track soul blues single (7m 14s) — released November 14th 2011 on Freestyle Records

The Fantastics! have established a reputation for their wide ranging musical influences and genre defying recordings and live performances. The recent album All The People won plaudits from all and sundry for its musical open-mindedness, and especially for the vocal contributions from Sulene Fleming. The a side of this juicy 45, Cold Case features Sulenes outstanding, wonderful and quirky vocal performance, as the band display a distinct blues influence with a swampy, southern soul feel. The track builds to an incredible crescendo as Ms Fleming shows just what she can do, with style personality and substance! The flipside, Fat Hector is a hard grooving soul-jazz instrumental with tough R&B overtones and features a classic organ & tenor sax workout extraordinaire. A favourite of The Fantastics! live shows, this recording sees the light of day for the first time, and is totally exclusive to this brand new 45!
