Strange is one of the rarest Ike & Tina singles, released on Ike’s own label „Sonja". It features two very raw non album tracks, not available on any album until today. A reworked version of the title track is available on the album Airwaves from 1978. Strangely enough, „You’re A Jive Playboy“ from the b-side is the same song and same version as „Don’t Lie To Me“ from the single Betcha Can’t Kiss Me, „Poor Sam“ from the single I Better Get Ta Steppin’ and „Sad Sam“ from the sampler Souled From The Vaults. Strange was released in 1964 from Sonja Records in America on 7“ vinyl. The single was reissued in 2014 in it’s original format.
