LEGENDARY SUPERSTARS is an entertaining hodgepodge of an album, about half of it deriving from various demo sessions from the early '70s, apparently done at Ike's home studio. There are interesting covers of various hits of the day, including Elton John's "Philadelphia Freedom" and a surprisingly soulful version of Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed," performed with clavinet.
The rest of the album, save for a barn-burning live version of "Something's Got a Hold on Me," consists of some of the duo's best known studio work of the early '60s. It includes the often-covered "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" as well as one of the fiercest versions of "Twist and Shout" ever heard.
