Ike & Tina Turner - Nuff Said - Album

Nuff Said was recorded in Ike’s Bolic Sound studio in 1971 and features a two-part instrumental track as the title song, with the beginning on the a-side and the sequel as the last track on the b-side. The front cover was shot by Bob Gruen in a supermarket, while Tina bought some bread. It’s one of the rare pictures where she don’t wear a wig. The album produced internationally no singles, only in Brazil and Madagascar they released two tracks. In 2010, it was reissued on the double CD Come Together / Nuff Said.

Ike & Tina Turner - Nuff Said - Album

CashBox - November 13, 1971

The fact that Ike & Tina can drop „Turner“ from their act's name shows how popular they've gotten since touring with the Stones and starring in the „SouI To SouI“ movie. The husband-and-wife team aim to please their expanded audience with a new look on the record jacket and a new sound inside. Listen to „Moving Into Hip Style - A Trip Child“ and see what we mean, Ike plays organ instead of guitar this time out and his backup band has changed its name from the „Kings of Rhythm“ to „Family Vibes“ (shades of Sly!). „I Love What You Do To Me,“ „Can't You Hear Me Callin“ and the title tune are highlights.

Billboard - November 13, 1971

This husband and wife team has always provided one of the most exciting concert acts possible and it's about time they had a real album winner. This entry will do it. „I Love What You Do To Me“ has the feel of „Proud Mary“ with Ike's bass voice pouring heavy. Other standouts include „Sweet Flustrations,“ „Moving Into Hip Style-A Trip Child“ and „What You Don't See.“ Watch it Go!
