Workin' Together is the title track from Ike & Tina’s most successful album Workin’ Together and was released as a single at the end of 1970. 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 the single live at the tv show American Bandstand on January 16, 1971. For this song is a very rare video clip 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!

Title tune of their current LP, the dynamic duo hit hard with this driving rock item with strong lyric line. A sure-fire chart topper for their recent "I Want to Take You Higher." Flip: No Information Available. Liberty 56207
