Live! The Ike & Tina Turner Show
Released: Jul 2005
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
Culled from the duo's mid-'60s live act, this disk is a monster. From the first note that Tina belts out on opening track "Finger Poppin'," the listener is catapulted into a wormhole of funk. Tina's voice is savage -- primal, mercurial and orgasmic. "Let the Good Times Roll" is raw power, while "Something's Got a Hold of Me" and "Twist and Shout" simply quake. If we could bottle this stuff, our energy problems would be solved tomorrow.
