The Ikettes can be heard on many Ike & Tina singles as background singers, but the very first solo single was in 1962 with „I’m Blue“, which was also the most sucessful one. This led to numerous other singles during the sixties and early seventies - mostly without any sucess on the charts. Only the track „Peaches 'N' Cream“ from 1965 charted in the pop chart again. The last single under their original name was „I’m Just Not Ready For Love“ from 1972. After that, they changed their name to „The Mirettes“ and tried their luck under a new management without Ike Turner.
