Billboard - March 06, 1975
Collection of hits from the earliest days to more recent material makes up set that should pull in pop, soul and disco play. Good indication of the role the pair have played in the evolution of rock. Early hits were often recut by English groups, and later hits were often covers of white versions of the same songs. Interesting thing was the way Ike & Tina rearranged material to suit themselves and often became identified with the rearranged versions.
