This recording is also available in Hybrid SACD Multichannel (AKD 279).

Award winning British Jazz Singer of the Year Claire Martin, International Cabaret award winner Barb Jungr and Neasden Queen of Soul Mari Wilson, solo and in harmony, bring the songs you love to hate to life again in this glamorous celebration of all things girlie.

"Take three of the UK's finest female vocalists, add a bunch of songs at the oh-so-cheesy end of the spectrum and sprinkle liberally with postmodern irony and that, in a nutshell, is Girl Talk. As camp as Christmas and huge fun, this brassy, sassy and supremely arch review takes a deliciously tongue-in-cheek look at love, marriage and make-up in the 21st century via the hallowed classics of yesteryear. Heard solo and in glorious three-part harmony, Mari Wilson, Barb Jungr and Claire Martin are all fabulous singers in their own right, and by some strange work of alchemy their respective worlds of pop, cabaret and jazz combine seamlessly in this common cause. Of course one can't ignore the fact that some of these songs are in fact completely brilliant. It's great to hear Bacharach and David's "Wives and Lovers", Sondheim's "Ladies Who Lunch" and the evergreen Motown number "It Should've Been Me". Also included are such epics of stereotyping as "A Woman's Touch" ("A touch of paint, one magic nail, can turn a kitchen chair into a Chippendale"), complete with its comedic music hall style arrangement. In the role of MD, accompanist and producer Adrian York performs heroically." (Jazzwise, Peter Quinn, 2006)

"Post-feminism made flesh. The ever-inventive Jungr has recruited sometime associate and the formerly bee-hived Neasden Queen of Soul alongside her labelmate (and neighbour of Wilson) Martin for an ever-so-tongue-in-cheek cruise through some of the least politically correct songs in the popular song repertoire. Bacharach and David's 1960s shockers Wishin' and Hopin' and Wives and Lovers, the rather more ambiguous late-seventies sentiments of Messrs Costello and Jackson (Girls Talk and Different for Girls), showtunes and Motown classics - all are slickly performed in close harmony with fine piano accompaniment from Adrian York. No offence girls, but you have to be old enough to know better to be this damned smart." (The Herald, Keith Bruce, 2006)
