Ike & Tina Turner - Workin Together - Album

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,“ which was the b-side of „Proud Mary“ and written by Tina’s sister Alline Bullock, was later covered by Nina Simone. Most of the songs were credited to Eki Renrut, which was Ike Turner’s name in backwards, except for „The Way You Love Me,“ a song the Turners recorded for their very first studio album, The Soul of Ike & Tina Turner, a decade earlier.

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.
