Blues & Soul - February 04, 1972

Because Ike and Tina’s new American release is far from their strongest, UA decide to try this powerful, mid-tempo item from their Blue Thumb days instead. Certainly, there's a strong beat on this one and a definite tune with Tina surprisingly subdued on the vocal side of things. The musical side is also underplayed - all adding up to a moody performance that could see good sales since there is a definite demand for this one. The duo's moving and pathos loaded version of the Redding-Butler gem song is one of the best, with Tina quite obviously getting carried away.
