Live - The Ike & Tina Turner Show (Vol. 1) was shortly released after the album Revue Live from Kent Records. Warner Bros. Records acquired the rights to this similar recording by the label-hopping duo and quickly countered with this album, which reached the top ten of the R&B charts in February 1965, making it the very first album for Ike & Tina on the American charts. The recording is very raw with vocal performances from Tina, The Ikettes and the Kings of Rhythm. It was recorded live at the Skyliner Ballroom (Fort Worth, Texas) and the Lovall's Ballroom (Dallas, Texas). The UK release contains the extra track Tell Her I’m Not Home, which was a single the same year. Some month later, Warner put out the sequel with Volume 2 on it’s Loma subsidiary.
