Living Blues - p.68
"[Tina] is at the vocal helm of the dozen tracks at hand, and she has seldom sounded as raw or as intense....Urgency oozes from every throaty word..."
Personnel: Ike Turner (vocals, guitar); Tina Turner (vocals); The Ikettes (background vocals).
Recording information: 1962; 1964.
A great album of early Ike & Tina Turner in concert, long before things became so formulaic that even the Turner dance routines and sexy costumes were predictable and tiring. They were still a hungry, eager, galvanizing band then, and even performed with energy and fire on mundane filler. If you ever spot this one, grab it immediately. ~ Ron Wynn
