Ike & Tina Turner - So Fine - Single

So Fine is the title track from the album So Fine and was released as a single in 1968. It’s a cover version from „The Fiestas“. The lead vocals are from the Ikettes with Tina on the backing vocals. The original US release has two different labels - the first is credited to „Ike and Tina and The Ikettes“ and the other to „Iketts“, which is also misspelled. The song was a minor hit in the R&B charts. A different version with lead vocals from Ike Turner was released in the 90th on the rarities sampler „Good Old Times“ - again with backing vocals from Tina. The song „You’re So Fine“ on the album So Fine is very similar to this song, this time with lead vocals from Tina.
