Ike & Tina Turner - What You Hear Is What You Get (Live at Carnegie Hall) - Album

What You Hear Is What You Get (Live at Carnegie Hall) is together with the album Workin Together (which was Ike and Tin’s highest charting U.S. album) the most successful album of the duo, reaching #25 on the Billboard charts.

Ike and Tina performed a doubleheader at the Carnegie Hall in New York City on April 1, 1971. The 7:30 PM show was followed by an 11 o'clock concert that carried on into the early hours of April 2. Beside some Ike Turner penned songs, it includes also live interpretations of songs from Otis Redding, Sly Stone, The Rolling Stones and Proud Mary from Creedence Clearwater Revival. The album was originally released with a very nice tri-fold cover and was reissued on CD in 1999.

This 2 record set of the Ike & Tina Turner revue's recent Carnegie Hall concert only hints at the charge of excitement generated by the Ikettes, Ike, and, especially Tina Turner before the capacity crowd. "Proud Mary," "Honky Tonk Women," "Ooh Poo Pah Doo," and excitingly visual "I've Been Loving You Too Long," suggests the frenzied entertainment they provided.
