IKE & TINA TURNER Live At Carnegie Hall (1971) + Live At Madison Square Garden (1969)

1305532571_ike_t.tWhat You Hear Is What You Get:
Live At Carnegie Hall (1971)

Fiery 1971 live set from Ike & Tina Turner & band. By this time, they’d been tearing up concert stages all over the world with this 50s-styled soul review, relying heavily on modern-day covers – CCR’s “Proud Mary” and the Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women,” among others. A number of the tunes get extended workouts, which lack the essential visuals of Tina and the girls shaking those short string skirts, but the band delivers the appropriate dynamics. The editing is weak, however. Ike’s compositional originals, “Doin’ The Tina Turner” and “Ike’s Tune,” each get only a half-minute on disc, but that’s enough to secure some songwriting royalties, something the Turners often missed out on during their reign. It’s at Amazon, HERE.

Madison Square Gardens, November 1969
From The 40th Anniversary Stones Box

A short set, not even 20 minutes, from Ike & Tina’s 1969 opening slot for the Rolling Stones. Well-recorded sound makes up for the brevity, but you just know that Ike was simmering over that ‘World’s Greatest Rock N Roll Band’ Brit/white boy crap. Get the entire box, with BB King & Mick & the boys at Amazon, HERE.

    If I read the liner notes rightly, at the Stones gig, BB King opened, before Ike & Tina. Ike probably thought that was righteous, but me I’m not so sure. For musical importance, you could argue the whole bill was upside down (Keith might even agree), but I suspect the Stones won the crowd. Sounds that way!

    The Ike and Tina stuff on the Get Yer Ya’s Ya’s stuff blows away the Stones stuff. And the Stones were ON IT that nite, too.

      Yeah… it takes some balls to follow Ike & Tina. Probably why they only got 20 minutes. Someone might be able to follow a 3 minute “Proud Mary.” But, when IT&T get those 10 minute marathons going, there’s no topping them.

    @pete – actually, Terry Reid opened, followed by BB, then Ike and Tina. If I recall correctly, Joplin came out and danced with them. Saying it was a great show is a huge understatement.


    P.S. – Willard: great site! Thanks for all your effort!

    Willard – thanks for the Ike & Tina. For an even starker contrast, just check out the T.A.M.I. show, where the Stones followed James Brown — embarrassing for Mick and the boys, but really fun to watch. Mr. Brown starts at about 1:17:20

    What a nice Christmas present – one of my favourite songs – A Love Like Yours (Don’t Come Knockin’ Every Day).

    Thanks Captain!
