Workin Together is Ike & Tina’s most successful studio album which reached gold status in America. A total of four singles were released, including the most successful single of the duo with Proud Mary, a rock styled cover version originally from Creedence Clearwater Revival. The song „Funkier Than A Mosquita's Tweeter,“ was written by Tina’s sister Alline and was later covered by Nina Simone. Some of the songs were credited to Eki Renrut, which was Ike Turner’s name in backwards. 

Released December 1970 from Liberty Records on vinyl, cassette and 8-track cartridge, Workin’ Together reached #3 (R&B) and #25 (Pop) in America (1x Gold) and #12 in Germany. BGO Records reissued the album in 2011 on the double CD Workin’ Together / Let Me Touch Your Mind.

Nobody works harder than Ike & Tina Turner and workin’ together they take top material, rip it up, and resoul "Proud Mary," "Let It Be," "Get Back" and "Ooh Poo Pah Doo" their way. The duo gather a full head of funky, raucous steam, hitting only the heights of energy and excitement on the title romp, plus more of Ike's super rhythm workouts. Can't keep this kind of "up" music down.

"… John Fogerty hasn’t heard a thing until
he hears Tina do 'Proud Mary.' 
The spoken introduction done over
guitar and Ike singing the song
in the background is perfect.
The pick-up from the slow portion
of their arrangement
to the up-tempo one is done
with precision and flash."
