Ike & Tina TurnerKent Years ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Hard-hitting early work from Ike & Tina Turner – raw, unbridled, and surprisingly tight – yet without any of the cliches or overdone righteousness that marred their later years! Tina's still singing here often as part of the backing group, stepping out for a soulful lead at times, but also very much in touch with her supporting sisters – and there's a number of tunes that have a really nice focus on Ike's raw and raspy guitar work, which we always like a lot! Most tunes are Ike Turner originals – freshly voiced tracks, and none of the crossover covers that the pair later included in their work – and titles include "Hard Times", "I Don't Need", "Chicken Shack", "Gonna Have Fun", "It's Crazy Baby", "Don't You Blame It On Me", "Hurt Is All You Gave Me", "Flee Flee Fla", "My Baby Now", "You Can't Miss Nothing", "All I Could Do Was Cry", "Over You", "Baby Don't Do It", "I Need A Man", "Five Long Years", "Shake It Baby", "He's The One", "You Can't Have Your Cake & Eat It Too", and "Makin Plans Together".

Ike & Tina TurnerRiver Deep – Mountain High ... LP
A&M, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A legendary pairing of two key 60s pop talents – the soulful sounds of Ike & Tina Turner, and the soaring production styles of Phil Spector! The album's quite different than some of the grittier Turner projects of the time – lots of full orchestrations and strings, mixed with the rougher rhythms you'd usually hear from Ike – a blend that's surprisingly great, and helps push Tina's vocals into wonderfully mature territory – a bit like the mix of deep soul and class that you'd get from Etta James on mid-60s Chess Records! The album's a feather in the cap of both Spector and Turner – and titles include "River Deep Mountain High", "I Idolize You", "A Love Like Yours", "Such A Fool For You", "I'll Never Need More Than This", "A Fool In Love", and "Hold On Baby". Weird cover, too – with photography by Dennis Hopper! LP, Vinyl record album

Ike & Tina TurnerWorkin' Together ... LP
Liberty, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A nicely pivotal album by Ike & Tina Turner – one that has them still retaining some of the earthiness of earlier years, yet also honing their groove for the crossover audience that was digging them big at the end of the 60s! The best results of this shift is the increasing funk component in their music – a move away from R&B into a tighter 60s groove, one that often featured very strong guitar parts in its best incarnation. The set includes the classic "Funkier Than A Mosquito's Tweeter", plus "Ooh Poo Pah Doo", "Let It Be", "Goodbye So Long", "You Can Have It", "The Way You Love Me", "Get Back", and "Workin Together".

✨✧ Ike & Tina TurnerToo Hot To Hold (Springboard pressing) ... LP
Springboard, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hmmm. . . When's this stuff from? It appears to be the late 60s – at least from the sound, which is hard and funky in the best parts. The two best tracks are instrumentals – "Thinking Black", which has a muddled up drum and horn sound that's very nice, and "Funky Mule", which riffs along at high speed, sounding like the kind of a track that you'd prize if you found it as a funky 45! Other tracks are vocals by Tina, sounding a bit rough and ready – and titles include "Ain't Nobody's Business", "Too Hot To Hold", "Poor Little Fool", "I'm Fed Up", and "Make 'Em Wait".

Ike Turner & His Kings Of RhythmIke's Instrumentals ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The heaviest side of the great Ike Turner – early instrumental singles cut for Sue Records – all of them super-searing, super-heavy, and usually featuring some great guitar from Ike himself! Ike's best known as a soulful partner with Tina Turner – but before he hooked up with her as a singer, he was already leading a tight combo of his own – the super-sharp Kings Of Rhythm, who are really hitting their stride here – and work to support Ike in this wonderful pre-funk blend of soul, blues, and R&B – all with a razor-sharp edge. The titles alone should give you an idea of the nature of the tracks – with names like "Prancin", "The New Breed (parts 1 & 2)", "Katanga", "The Groove", "The Gully", "Trackdown Twist", "Cubano Jump", "Go To It", and "The Wild One" – and the package features 22 tracks in all – including a long "All The Blues All The Time" medley from a Crown Records album, two recorded under the name Icky Renrut, and a few more singles for the Flair label.

✨✧ Family VibesConfined To Soul ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Ike Turner's solo projects after the departure of Tina – and a pretty nice batch of funky instrumentals with a good mix of styles. The groove isn't as raw as in the Tina days – as there's more horns than guitar – but that doesn't stop the tracks from coming together well, in a mode that's half jazz funk, half instrumental soul. Titles include "LA Vamp", "Garbage Man", "Scratch", "The Shakes", "El Burritto", and "Beauty Is In The Eye Of the Beholder". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ike Turner, Fontella Bass, & OthersAbreast Of Soul ... LP
Pompeii, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic compilation of funky soul tracks released on Ike Turner's short-lived Pompeii label with Atlantic – and featuring a cover model exposing her chest in the "a breast" gag in the title! The set features a number of tracks that we've never seen in any other format – and we're not sure any of them ever came out as singles, or if they only ever appeared on this set for Pompeii. The record features some Ike & Tina cuts like "Nothing You Can Do Boy" and "We Need An Understanding" – but the best stuff is the more obscure material, like "Soulful Train" by Roger Collins, "Don't Come Back" by Leroy Horne, "Thinking Black" by Ike Turner & The Kings Of Rhythm, "No Peace No Rest" by Les Watson, and "Poor Little Fool", a sweet duet between Fontella Bass and Tina Turner!

✨✧ Gene & EuniceGo On Ko Ko Mo ... CD
Combo/Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully-done collection of work from Gene & Eunice – a 50s duo who had just a handful of hits, but cut some wonderful work for both the Aladdin and Combo Records label at the time! Gene & Eunice have a male/female style that's a key precursor to the bigger soul duet modes of the 60s – sometimes singing together at once with a nicely-harmonized sound, sometimes answering back and forth in a way that really gives their songs a lot of personality – and which makes them a likely inspiration for later folks like Ike & Tina Turner or Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell! And while this set's titled after their biggest hit – "Ko Ko Mo" – it's also got a range of work that finally shows the full late 50s scope of the pair – early singles for the Combo label, a number of which were never issued back in the day – and another dozen or so tracks recorded for the Aladdin label too – a total of 28 titles that include "You & Me", "This Is My Story", "Hi Diddle Diddle", "I'm So In Love With You", "Ko Ko Mo", "Flim Flam", "I Know A Girl", "Tell Me That You Love Me", "Poco Loco", "I'll Never Forget You", "Send Me Someone", "Only Lovers", "Can We Forget It", and "Move Over Baby".

✨✧ PP ArnoldKafunta (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Immediate/JVC (Japan), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic set of British soul by PP Arnold – LA native, and a onetime member of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue who ended up staying behind in the UK after a mid 60s tour! The album's got a very interesting approach that's quite a bit more sophisticated than the sound of the Ike Turner group – with production by Andrew Loog Oldham, and rich arrangements by Tony Meehan that float in bits of Brit easy, and full-styled 60s pop orchestrations, alongside more righteous straighter soul backings. Titles include "Kafunta One & Two", "Letter To Bill", "Dreamin", "To Love Somebody", and a great version of "God Only Knows". CD
(Out of print. Includes obi!)
