Feel Good returned Ike & Tina to their R&B roots with a blistering mix of soul, R&B and early funk. It features only one cover version with the Beatles She Came In Through The Bathroom Window and nine songs written by Tina Turner. The special effects on the track „Chopper“ are from Rhonda Graam. For promotion, Ike & Tina performed the title track at some TV-Shows in America and Tina announced some tracks from the album in a radio show from The Veterans Administration. Originally released in 1972 with a wonderful gatefold cover, the album was re-issued on the double CD Nutbush City Limits / Feel Good in 2006. In Japan, it was released on red vinyl including a 12“ size booklet.
