Baby, Get It On is the last chart entry for Ike & Tina Turner before their separation.

CashBox - May 10, 1975

Ike and Tina strike out hard with their most powerful commercial AM cut in quite some time. Particularly important for Tina, riding high as she is currently following her „Acid Queen“ role in „Tommy“. This tune is a super rocker, with driving rhythm, screamin’ vocals by Tina and the man. Fine break with some funky piano, guitar and vocal interplay between this super duo. What a way to break out into the top ten for one of Americas fave ensembles. Six stars, must go top ten territory.

Blues & Soul - June 24, 1975

When it comes to simple, irresistable excitement and rhythm, Ike and Tina are simply untouchable and Tina's gutsy enthusiasm certainly puts this hunk of funk in the pocket. Their best since "Sexy Ida" and me thinks it'll be at least as successful.
