Release Info (UK)

This is, I believe, the most exciting disc by this famous duo ever to be issued here. Recorded live at one of their sensational stage appearances in St. Louis, it spotlights Tina at her wildest on this classic James Brown number. The quality of the recording is excellent, as is the backing. The flip is something of an answer disc to their earlier U.S, hit 'A Fool In Love', and rocks along in typical Ike & Tina fashion. Available Friday 21st May, 1965.
