Let Me Touch Your Mind was originally released in 1973 in a very special deluxe gatefold cover with many artistic pictures from Tina. The cover art was designed from Norman Seeff, who photographed Ike & Tina as well as Tina solo many times. Only the title track was released as a single the same year. The album was reissued on a double CD together with Workin Together in 2011.

Just about the same thing can be said about the latest Ike & Tina album as about their other recent-vintage successes on UA. It is burningly energetic soul with Tina's uniquely sexy showmanship way out front on display, in a well-conceived program of Turner originals and covers. Duos next hit could be the slow-cooking title tune or Tina's lecture on mating, "Help Him". Jacket packaging is a unique foldout poster with computer-processed abstractions.
Their new album, LET ME TOUCH YOUR MIND, finds Ike & Tina again doing standard songs, after a long period in which they recorded only originals. Hank Ballards "Annie Had A Baby" meets Carole King's "Up On The Roof", and even "Born Free" fits in when the Turner's exciting treatment is applied.
Nobody else in the world knows how to make music like Ike & Tina. As unique as this cover design, it combines both the roughest and the smoothest qualities of rhythm & blues at it's best to produce the unforgettable sound that made classics of songs like "Proud Mary" and "Honky Tonk Women" after nobody thought the original versions could be taken any farther. But then it never pays to underestimate Ike & Tina Turner. They'll get you every time.
