Ike & Tina Turner - I'm Jealous - Single

Billboard - January 30, 1961

Two solid sides. On top, the gal half of the duo goes it alone on a wonderfully effective gospel-inspired performance. Much excitement here. The flip features the duo on a good blues-based ballad. Either side here with an edge to the first. Sides also have pop potential. (SUE 740)

CashBox - February 04, 1961

Pick of the week: Twosome, having clicked with „A Fool In Love“ and „I Idolize You,“ seem to have their third-in-a-row dual mart’er in „I’m Jealous.“ It’s a shufflin’ blueser featuring Tina at her wailing best. Ike’s instrumentalists and the gal chorus lend a solid backdrop. The coupler, „You’re My Baby,“ is another rhythmic shuffler with loads of appeal. (SUE 740)
