CashBox Magazine - December 12, 1964: (Warner Bros. 5493) MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY (2:00) The vet pop-r&b duo have had hits in the past and they can score again with this top-notch Yuletide offering. Tune is a medium-paced, shufflin’ chorus-backed blues tear-jerker with a plaintive seasonal theme. Watch it closely. (B+) OOH POOP A DOO (3:17) Funky reworking of the old Jessie Hill triumph.
Billboard Magazine - May 08, 1971: (UA 50782) The dynamic duo add a new touch to the old favorite—new lyric and performance, loaded with Hot 100 and soul chart potency. Wild vocal workout. Flip: (No Information Available).
CashBox Magazine - May 08, 1971: (UA 50782) One of the regulars in LP’s by blues and some top forty acts, “Ooh Poo Pah Doo" is turned into a powerful sales single by the "Proud Mary" duo. Riding a new peak in their career, Ike & Tina should have no problems seeing this one break R&B and Top 40. Flip: no flip info.
