IKE & TINA: Album (Studio)

Dance (1962)

Ike & Tina Turner - Dance - Album

Dance contains up-tempo, dance-oriented instrumental tracks from the Kings of Rhythm. Although this album shows Ike & Tina on the cover, Tina is not singing on any of the songs. Included is an instrumental version of their hit single It’s Gonna Work Out Fine from 1961, which is also the b-side track from the only single release with Prancing. The album was originally released in 1962 from Sue Records and was re-issued on compact disc several times, among others on the double CD Dynamite! / Dance in 2018. It was also issued in it’s original format on vinyl in 2014. Curiously, the order of the tracks on the original release differs between the back cover and the labels and the track ‚Steel Guitar Rag“ is named as „Square Dance“.

Billboard - March 10, 1962

Here’s a rousing, exuberant package of danceable instrumentals (the Turner's don't sing here) with strong teen-appeal. The line-up, featuring standout guitar work, includes „The Gulley,“ „Potato Mash,“ „Steel Guitar Rag“ and „Twistaroo“. Dual market appeal for pop and r&b buyers.
