Liner Notes

The Real Earthy, Dynamic Soulful, Bluesy Ike & Tina Turner Playing And Singing Their Greatest Hits

When the names of IKE and TINA TURNER are mentioned, soul music immediately comes to mind. For this talented couple have turned out one soul hit after another during recent seasons and they are all here in IKE & TINAS GREATEST HITS.

IKE TURNER was born some twenty odd years ago in Clarksdale, Mississippi, on the banks of the Mississippi River, just east of Arkansas. He’s been an avid music buff since the time he could talk and as a lad worked around the fringes of the music industry. In his teens, he taught himself how to play piano and guitar, then formed a band which became well-known in the mid-southwestern area.

TINA TURNER is in her very early twenties. Her career began when she attended a dance where Ike was playing. She walked up to him at intermission and asked for a chance to sing with the band, but Ike turned her down because of her lack of professional experience. Undaunted, Tina continued to badger Ike for a vocal opportunity. It finally come when another singer failed to show for a record date. The result was a smash hit called "A Fool In Love". The career of IKE and TINA TURNER was born.

Ike and Tina are now married. They are a great team domestically and musically. They’ve had soul hits by the carload and you'll hear the best of them in IKE & TINAS GREATEST HITS.
