THE SOUL OF IKE & TINA TURNER is a camp meeting', down home, revival time in the town you were born in, and the sanctified warmth and feeling of a New York or Chicago storefront church.

Soul in the past few years had become a very successful commercial term; more often than not, it is just a commercial term. Not so with Ike & Tina Turner. This is evident with the first few bars of "I'm Jealous," (the first cut on the LP) you know you are hearing the gospel, the truth, as Tina sings it and as Ike plays it. When you hear "A Fool in Love" you get to know the misery of having your 'nose-open' for a closed heart. Tina transmits the joy she feels when she sings 'I Idolize You'. This is soul, the means of expressing yourself with unrestrained freedom. If you desire the gospel of popular music, Tina Turner is your prophet. Be excitingly and rhythmically baptized again by Ike & Tina Turner.
