Ike & Tina Turner - Soul to Soul Festival

Soul To Soul was a concert festival for Ghanas 14th Independence Day, March 6, 1971 at the Black Star Square in Accra. An array of mostly American R&B, soul, rock, and jazz musicians like Wilson Picket, Santana, Roberta Flack, The Staple Singers and Ike & Tina Turner were invited to participate in this concert. A movie and soundtrack album with selected performances was released later the same year. In 2004 the movie was reissued on DVD, including additional bonus content as well as an extended soundtrack CD with three songs from Ike & Tina.
