is a soul music ballad written and released from Otis Redding in 1965. Ike & Tina Turner covered it in 1969 for their album Outta Season and performed it live in their concerts, available on many live albums. It was also released twice as a single, first in 1969 and once again in 1971. The version from their live shows differs from the original, because they added an additional section with an explicit conversation between them. Tina handled the microphone in a raunchy way, while Ike made suggestive slurping noises. In Gimme Shelter, a concert film from The Rolling Stones, Ike & Tina performed this song at Madison Square Garden in New York, available on the album Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! from 2009. Tina Turner performed the song also live in her early solo concerts, available on the Wild Lady of Rock home video.
