Workin' Together is the title track and the second single from Ike & Tina’s most successful album Workin’ Together. Both songs were written by Ike Turner, but the title song was credited to Eki Renrut, which is the backward spelling of Ike’s name. Ike & Tina promoted it live at the tv show „American Bandstand“ on January 16, 1971. For this song, a very rare video clip is available, showing Ike & Tina live and a very private side of them, plus many scenes about violence, racism and war. The songtext is also very unusual for Ike & Tina, because it’s very politically and describes the problems of the world. Unfortunately, the message of the song is still very present - more than ever!

Released October 1970 from Liberty Records on 7“ vinyl, Workin’ Together reached #41 (R&B) in America.
