The Edge contains the very last Ike & Tina recordings with lead vocals from Tina on the a-side and Ike Turner compositions without Tina on the b-side. The instrumental part was played by Home Grown Funk, a popular Memphis group in the '70s. In 1984, after Tina’s comback, all five songs with Tina have been also released on a Mini album. The song Party Vibes was released as a promo in 1980 and peaked at #27 (Dance) in America, while Shame, Shame, Shame was 1982 a single in Europe, featuring an extended and remixed version. Tina promoted the song on De Willem Ruis Lotto Show in The Netherlands, where it reached #47. The Edge was originally released in 1980 from Fantasy Records on vinyl and cassette and was reissued on compact disc as a limited edition vinyl replica in 2017.
