IKE & TINA: Video (Documentation)

On The Road (2012)

Ike & Tina Turner - On The Road - Video

On The Road 1971-72 is a home video from the legendary American author and photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya.

Bob saw Ike & Tina for the first time at the TV-Show „Sam and Dave“ and was totally mesmerized. After that, he took the first photos from the duo at the Honka Monka Club in Queens. Several days later, he showed the pictures to his friends at another Ike & Tina concert, while Ike was behind him. Ike liked what he saw and showed them to Tina in the dressing room, which was the beginning of the relationship between Bob Gruen and Ike & Tina Turner. One year later, he took the first cover photo with Tina.

Bob bought a Sony Portapac video recorder, which filmed in black & white and with mono sound. Weekdays they were in Ike’s Bolic Sound studio or filming Tina and the kids in their home. Weekends they went on the road to various shows. Later, Ike bought a 16mm film camera, so they could make color footage.

This home video features very rare recordings from Ike & Tina Turner live on the road, in the studio, at home, in the dressing room and kidding at the airport. In 2014, it won the Living Blues Award in the category „Best Blues Video“. As an addon, a wonderful Picture Disc with live recordings was released the next year.
