Ike & Tina Turner in “The Hague Holland”, 1969

Ike Turner: PHIL SPECTOR?! I didn’t know you was a fan. Hey, look here. Anything you got to say to her, you can say to me.Phil Spector: All right, then. I’d like to record a song with her.Ike: Hey, y’all hear that? Phil Spector want to record with Ike and Tina.Phil: Actually, I’d like to record a song with Tina.Ike: …Oh.(1966)

Ike agreed via a payment of 25 G’s… then Tina went to the studio that fall in 1965 and recorded the song a record 63 times before Spector’s hard-headed ass was satisfied with Tina’s delivery. She got so hot from recording it over and over, she took off the wig AND the blouse and performed it with a bra on.

Uber soulful rendition of Come Together from the deluxe version of Get Yer Ya - Ya’s Out!   Tina is such a vocal powerhouse, holy gawd.  The band was quite tight as well…but it’s all about Tina’s vocal prowess.

"I Smell Trouble," Ike and Tina Turner LIVE in 1971.
That call and response between Tina and Ike’s guitar at 4:30 is the exact moment when I knew there was a God, and that she was Black. Oh my fuck!! Tina is a GODDESS!! And Ike’s guitar skills? Masterful!

This performance is a reason why Ike and Tina were magical together onstage despite all of their problems. They were both geniuses.
