We're not sure about the cussin and cryin, but Ike & Tina Tuner are definitely carryin on here – with a heavy funk sound that's very different than some of their bigger records of the time! The set is one of a few that Ike did for the Pompeii imprint of Atlantic Records – a label that gave him complete freedom to work on the harder, funkier side of his style – which he definitely does here, with an edge that's missing from some of the later albums on United artists. The album includes 2 killer instrumentals – "Thinking Black" and "Black Beauty" – both of which you'd be proud to own as funky 45s! Other tracks feature some hard soul vocals by Tina – and titles include "You Got What You Wanted", "So Blue Over You", "Cussin Cryin & Carryin On", "Make Em Wait", "I Better Get Ta Steppin", and "I'm Fed Up". LP, Vinyl record album
One of the coolest records ever from Ike and Tina Turner – and definitely one of their records with a very cool cover! The set was recorded for Ike's short-lived Pompeii subsidiary for Atlantic – a label where he did some of his heaviest, funkiest work of the 60s – serving up a mixture of the duo's raw Sue Records vocal material with some of Atlantic's southern soul from the same time – but with a badass funk current that really shows the way that Ike was evolving his groove since the start of the 60s! Titles include "Too Hot To Hold", "Bet'Cha Can't Kiss Me", "Ain't Nobody's Business", "I Better Get Ta Steppin", "So Fine", "We Need An Understanding", and "A Fool In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Maclaine/Sammy Davis Jr —
Sweet Charity ... LP Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ok, so this is a musical – not really our usual bag – but it does contain one of the greatest Sammy Davis Jr songs of all time: the sweetly swinging "Rhythm Of Life", which Sammy sings in character as "Big Daddy", a hip strutting street preacher who kicks it with a groovy punchy sound! Shirley's vocals aren't that great – kind of thin and wispy – but she does get some really great songs, including "I'm A Brass Band", "My Personal Property", and "Where Am I Going" – plus the over-tired "If My Friends Could See Me Now". Orchestrations are by Joseph Gershenson, and the album also has one nice groovy instrumental – "The Pompeii Club", a nice little frug number! LP, Vinyl record album
