Sexy Ida contains two stylistically different versions and was intended to be included on the album Sweet Rhode Island Red, but was only on the tracklist of the original release in some European countries to promote their tour in Europe. Ike & Tina performed the song live at several tv shows like „Soul Train“ and „The Midnight Special“. Ike Turner recorded also a solo version in 1996 with lead vocals by Patrick Gammon and Anita Davis, available on his album My Bluescountry.
Released in July 1974 in America and in September 1974 in Europe from United Artists Records on 7“ vinyl, Sexy Ida reached #29 (R&B) and #65 (Pop) in America and #51 in England.
