Ike & Tina Turner, enjoying competitive sales from the many labels with rights to their recordings, add some Pompeii product to the sweepstakes and bid for a solid position on the charts. By far the best of the lot, Pompeii's contribution features the dynamic singing and instrumental soul duo in a committed r&b performance that sparkles with fine production from Ike Turner. Tina is powerful and persuasive in the title tune, plus "Poor Little Poor" and "You Got What You Wanted."
