Ike & Tina Turner - Shake A Tail Feather - Single

Shake A Tail Feather was taken from the album So Fine  and a European single in 1969 with lead vocals from Tina. It was originally released from The Five Du-Tones in 1963. The Ikettes usually performed the song in concerts, live versions are available on the album Live In Paris and Show Live (Vol. 2). Jimmy Thomas, a vocalist in the revue, performed the song with the Ikettes on the TV-Show Hollywood A Go-Go in 1965. Tina re-recorded the track in 1993 for the soundtrack album What’s Love Got To To With It. The b-side Cussin’, Cryin’ & Carryin’ On from the same named album, was also a single the same year.
