Product Description

Product Description

Two early 1970s albums from Ike and Tina. Whilst their live shows packed them in, the duo found it hard to rekindle the recorded success of River Deep, Mountain High. However, these two albums paved the way for 'Nutbush City Limits' in 1973. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with extensive new notes.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Between June 1969 and February 1973, Ike & Tina Turner released 10 albums worth of material - a staggeringly prolific amount. But outside of R'n'B and Soul circles - barely anyone noticed. Finally, when "Nutbush City Limits" did give them a bona-fide worldwide smash in November 1973, it cruelly turned out to be a virtual one-hit wonder. Tina then found the courage to leave that musical prison and famously abusive relationship in 1974 and blossomed into a global superstar who is revered to this day over 40 years later (with more than a little help from musical friends in the industry).

Since those heady 1970's days of recording and touring slog - their 'funky-as-a-gnat's-tweeter' albums have all but disappeared - resolutely ignored really. Hopefully this superb release will change all that. There is so much on here to savour - and in brand new sparkling sound quality too. Here are the details...

Released August 2010, Beat Goes On BGOCD942 breaks down as follows (68:09 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 12 are the album "Come Together", released May 1970 in the USA on Liberty LST-7637 and September 1970 in the UK on Liberty LBS 83350
Tracks 13 to 23 are the album "'Nuff Said", released November 1971 in the USA on United Artists UAS-5530 and March 1972 in the UK on United Artists UAG 29256

This CD comes in an outer card wrap that lends each of the Beat Goes On reissues a classy look and feel. The 12-page booklet has liner notes by DAVID WELLS and features black and white photos of the duo as well as a history of the two albums. But it's the sound that impresses most. Remastered by ANDREW THOMPSON at Sound Mastering in London - the audio is really clear and full of detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two great original albums on one CD! 4 April 2011
By Eva
For me it's always great to find original albums on CD, discovering great "older" and authentic material otherwise unrightfully forgotten and left somewhere on in a shelf full of vinyl. On this CD you'll get great soulful rock 'n' roll / R&B from the seventies. Album Come Together (1970) contains two great singles: "Come Together" and "I Want To Take You Higher"; the album 'Nuff Said (1971) contains the single "Pick Me Up (Take Me Where My Home Is)". Come Together had more hit potential, but 'Nuff Said is very enjoyable with songs like Pick Me Up and What You Don't See. Ike & Tina Turner weren't always the best in creating there own songs, but boy, were they masters in re-interpreting songs of others. Here you'll find super covers of Come Together (Beatles), Honky Tonk Women (Rolling Stones) and I Want To Take You Higher (Sly & The Family Stone). Discover and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally on CD 18 July 2010
By TT
Verified Purchase
Finally one of Ike & Tina's best albums is available on CD for the first time. The album "come together" recorded on the Liberty label in the late sixties is one of the duo's best. You also get their "workin' together" album from the early seventies on this package. This album contains the classic "proud mary" and was Ike & Tina's most succesful studio album. This is the period when they moved from soul - r&b to a more rock oriented public.
A must for every Tina Turner fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars "...But When They Got To Me...I Turned It Down..." 22 Aug 2011

Remastered by ANDREW THOMPSON at Sound Mastering in London - the audio is really clear and full of detail.
Each cut now has a power that gives the predominately funk tunes a real wallop as they exit your speakers.

The first single off the "Come Together" album in the UK was the title track released on Liberty LBF 15303 in March 1970 - a fairly workmanlike cover of The Beatles "Abbey Road" opener. Far better - and featured on cool CD compilations in the last few years - was the B-side "Honky Tonk Women" - a cover of The Rolling Stones gem. In the hands of Ike's guitar funk and Tina's rasping vocals - it's a very cool dancefloor filler. There then followed a second single in June 1970 on Liberty LBF 15367 where both sides absolutely rocked. "I Want To Take You Higher" on the A is a funky cover of the Sly & The Family Stone tune from the 1969 "Stand!" LP. But even better is the drugs and abuse song on the flip - "Contact High" (written by Ike from experience) spares no punches about cocaine and its effect on people - caustically commenting on the sheer amount of narcotics involved in the music business at the time (lyrics above). The spoken words of the naughty "Doin' It" end the album on a high note - it would also become a B-side in November 1971 on United Artists.

The "'Nuff Said" album relied a lot on brassy arrangements which gave the tunes an almost Blood, Sweat & Tears feel to them with Ike's trademark choppy guitar licks holding up the rhythm section. One such example is the excellent "What You Don't See (Is Better Yet)". The title track is a driving instrumental that sounds like a studio jam - Ike ripping through guitar flicks as the keyboards and brass punch in and out. "Tell The Truth" gets back to funky business - catchy as a rash in a Bangkok knocking shop - it's a highlight on here and is presented in pumping great sound too. "Part II" of the title track ends the record - bringing the rocking instrumental down to a slow grooving finish - very nice.

To sum up - I've enjoyed these albums a lot. And while not all of the tracks are undiluted Soul/Funk genius - when Ike & Tina hit that groove - man were they good.

Recommended like a gin-soaked Honky Tonk Woman...

PS:
Beat Goes On has also issued "Workin' Together" (1971) and "Let Me Touch Your Mind" (1974) on a single CD in August 2011
Raven of Australia reissued "Nutbush City Limits" (1973) and "Feel Good" (1972) on a single CD in 2006
Blue Moon reissued "The Hunter" (1970) and "Outta Season" (1969) on a single CD also in 2006

4.0 out of 5 stars never enough 29 Sep 2010
By kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
it's great to see Ike and Tina's actual albums getting remastered and re-released (you can never get enough of them) and I advise you to grab this one/two! I have tons of Ike and Tina stuff but had not heard many of these songs
"Come Together" contains some of their best known covers but the Ike penned tracks are great and probably his best ever! And Tina sounds superb , she is really given a chance to show off her "singing" voice on many of these tracks .Ike and Tina didn't make many great albums but this is great listening . ( I also recommend "Outta Season", "The Hunter" and "Working Together")
Great packaging and liner notes too.
if you are into any of their stuff , whatcha waitin' for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep These Oldies Rolling 21 Dec 2011
By JE Farrow - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Boy, Amazon is on a ROLL lately with new releases of vintage music. I had given up hope of ever finding COME TOGETHER...but here it is! This CD (and I'm just speaking about COME TOGETHER, not necessarily NUFF SAID) is packed with Ike Turner's hard drive rhythm propelling Tina Turner's Volcanic Voice. Their version of Come Together is--yes, I'll say it--as good as The Beatles original--maybe even better!. Tina even out does Mick Jagger on Honky Tonk Woman. Too Much Woman (for a Henpecked Man) says it all. Evil Man says it all too. TT's commanding delivery even fuel charges the downer lyrics of Unlucky Creature. This was the type of Ike Turner lyric Tina Turner would later say she didn't care for. A ton of coke up the nose will do that to the best lyricists in the end. Be that as it may, COME TOGETHER totally rocks!

NUFF SAID is fine, but it's just a little extra backup for the top billing COME TOGETHER.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Come Together 7 Dec 2010
By Eliminator Man - Published on Amazon.com
I am very excited to see this disc. I regularly look at Ike and Tina listings hoping to see this reissued. I thought it never would. Allmusic gives this album a different track listing because there was a later album by the same name. This was my first and favorite Ike and Tina. It came out just before Proud Mary made them stars on a much bigger scale. The songs are solid all the way through. The side with Contact High, Keep On Walkin', etc is just super: hard rocking all the way. I have bought several Ike and Tina discs just looking for the energy of this one and could never find. Have to stop writing now and order this asap!
