Whole Lotta Love is a Led Zeppelin cover version and was released from the album Acid Queen in 1975. It was after Baby, Get It On the second single in Germany and America. The b-side contains an Ike Turner composition with „Rockin And Rollin“. The version on this single is much shorter than the album version, because the intro and outro instrumental part was edited. During the introduction of her band members at the final date of her „Twenty Four Seven Tour“ in 2000, Tina performed a very short version of „Whole Lotta Love“ live.

This characteristically high-voltage and raunchy interpretation of the Led Zeppelin heavy-metal standard is by far Tina's most commercial outing in quite a while. The blending of material and non-Ike production with Tina's great shouting soul chops is just full of winning hooks. Even those who are tired of Tina's seemingly endless reworkings of rock oldies would dig this much.
