Album: Ike Turner, Studio Productions, New Orleans & Los Angeles 1963-65 (Ace)
Sunday 20 May 2012
Out on tour for most of the year with Tina, Ike took to booking studio time wherever he lay his hat, cutting impromptu sessions with members of his soul revue for LA's Modern label, often using the legendary Cosimo's in New Orleans.
This 27-song digest of the period is hit and miss, but there are some killer tracks, including "I'm Tore Up", a classic Kings of Rhythm guitar-blues credited to Jackie Brenston, and Tina singing "Five Long Years". Great sleeve notes, too.
