The Ike and Tina Turner Show - Vestron Musicvideo $18.95. This 21-minute sampling of the sizzling Ike and Tina act of the late ’60s is a fascinating reminder of where the now-anointed Tina Turner once stood in relationship to her career and her husband. Captured during a Ceasars Palace gig, the pair are interviewed between snipets of performances of such songs as „Proud Mary,“ „Everyday People,” „Honky Tonk Woman,” and „Sweet Soul Music“. When asked what her plans are for the future, Tina replies, “I don’t have any plans. My plans are lke’s plans (to achieve success.)” Performance value is muddled by stylish photography and aging tape, still, the piece is a must-have for Turner fans.
