Tra La La La La is the second single from the album Dynamite with success in the Billboard R&B and Pop charts. The non album track from the b-side is an edited version of the song „Changes Are“ from Ike & Tina’s debut album The Soul of Ike & Tina.

Released in March 1962 from Sue Records in America on 7“ vinyl, Tra La La La La reached #9 (R&B) and #50 (Pop).

Billboard Magazine - March 17, 1962: **** Tra La La La La — SUE 757 — Ike and Tina sell this wild side with enthusiasm over uninhibited backing by group and ork. Could get exposure, especially on r.&b. stations. **** Puppy Love — Tina shouts out the lyrics to this medium rocker brightly over driving ork support.

CashBox Magazine - March 17, 1962: (Sue 757) Ike & Tina Turner, riding a string of r&b-pop clicks that recently included “A Fool In Love,” should continue their winning ways with this one. It’s a bright rock-a-cha-cha, labeled “Tra La La La La,” that Tina & a chorus invitingly chant against a terrific Ike Turner instrumental backdrop. Backing’s a ripplying rhythmic blueser tabbed “Puppy Love.”
