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 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.

Looks like they’re doing “Goodbye So Long”…
This performance is a reason why Ike and Tina were magical together onstage despite all of their problems. They were both geniuses.
