(G)Old & New is the second and last studio album from The Ikettes, recorded due to popular demand, because numerous requests received in recent years by United Artists for a new album. It features some previously released tracks in different versions and some new songs like two tracks from the Supremes as well as high energy funk rock covers of Billy Preston, the Doobie Brothers, Joe Tex and The Crystals. The Ikettes on the cover picture are Linda Shuford-Williams, Debbie Wilson and Linda Sims, although at the time of the release Linda Shuford-Williams was not an Ikette but Charlotte Lewis. The album is unfortunately still waiting for a release on compact disc.

Returning to the recording spotlight after a trio of big 1962-65 hits, the Ikettes deliver a strong uptempo soul collection for their first album as UA's first female group. Lots of characteristic Ikette energy, in a set of oldies combined with new material

One of the reasons why Ike and Tina Turner’s stage act is so dynamic is the presence of the gorgeous Ikettes, who shine like gold on this collection of material spanning a range of hits from Billy Preston's „Will It Go Round In Circles“ to Joe Tex's „I Gotcha.“ Each cut has the fresh, bouncy rhythm that become an Ikette trademark, especially „Listen To The Music,“ „Camel Walk,“ and „Peaches and Cream.“ The girls have done a marvelous job with the Supreme's hit, „Come See about Me“ and are amazing doing „Da Doo Ron Ron,“ the classic Ronette hit.
