Studio Productions: New Orleans & L.A.1963-1965 [Import][CD]
UK collection. When the Ike & Tina Turner Revue was on tour constantly in the 1960s, Ike would use any free time to book a local studio to cut tracks using all the Revue's members. This a collection of those great recordings, cut by Ike in the time period of 1963-1965, at various studios in the USA, made for Modern (Kent) Records of Los Angeles. Some of the tracks come from previously unissued studio sessions and all are in great sound quality. And, yes, Tina herself is here, but as if to prove Ike was no one-trick pony, the Acid Queen sings only two leads here, while she is in evidence as a back-up singer elsewhere in the collection. Other women featured are Jessie Smith, Venetta Fields and Dee Dee Johnson. The male leads featured are Stacy Johnson, Jimmy Thomas, Ernest Lane, Bobby John, Jackie Brenston and Vernon Guy, every one a Soul and Blues "King" in his own right. Ace Records.
