Ike & Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits - Album

Nutbush City Limits is because of it's title track, which was a hit single the same year, one of the best known album from Ike & Tina. But in contrast to the single, the album did not very well on the charts in America. The version of „River Deep - Mountain High“ is a re-recording from Ike and was also released as a single in 1974. A total of five songs were written by Tina.

Simply the best thought-out Ike & Tina album in many moons, featuring far more good original material and less filler than is Ike's wont. New development here is the playful use of synthesizers, such as the "Funky Worm" arpeggios in the freaky novelty hit title cut. Another TNT single shot is "Thats My Purpose," if cut to bring in Tina’s wailing chorus hook sooner.
