The Ike and Tina Turner Story features classic Ike & Tina Turner songs including their very first bona-fide hit "A Fool in Love," a concoction of soul and raw vulnerability that shook the music world when it was released in 1960. The 3-CD box set also includes top hits and fan favorites "Proud Mary," "Nutbush City Limits," "I've Been Loving You Too Long," "Come Together, "Honky Tonk Woman," "It's Gonna Work Out Fine," The Ikettes smash hit "I'm Blue (Gong Gong Song)" and a special live performance of "River Deep, Mountain High." And since nothing could match the electricity of their live performances, the third disc in the collection comes with the entire 1969 live album "Live.....In Person" (never available before on CD), which includes songs like "Respect" and "Son of A Preacher Man." During their musical reign, Ike and Tina dominated the R&B and pop charts. Ike is credited with being the brilliant architect that crafted their concerts' frenetic pace, feverish dance routines, impeccable musicianship and vigorous interplay between the band members and the singers. Even more appealing were their songs, which transcended all genres (particularly soul and rock), including classic interpretations of The Beatles' "Come Together" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary," which became Ike and Tina's biggest hit. T. Rex's Marc Bolan even played an uncredited guitar on "Sexy Ida" and on another of their biggest hits, "Nutbush City Limits." Their crossover success became official when The Rolling Stones brought Ike & Tina onto their 1969 US tour.
The box set highlights Ike's genius as a musician, songwriter, producer and guiding force in the evolution of African American music from juke joint blues to R&B and then to soul and funk while Tina's unparalleled vocals and explosive performances are evident throughout the set. 1, 2, 3, 4.
