3.0 out of 5 stars Hmm.... 12 Mar 2009
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not sure about this one. I am only familiar with one Ike and Tina Turner track, the excellent 'River Deep, Mountain High'. I am familiar enough with it to know that the version presented on this CD IS NOT the well know Phil Spector original (annoying, as it was for this song that I had purchased this set!), but a rather inferior rendition. Not knowing any of their other material I do not if any of the other tracks are also not original recordings.

Having said that, the music is quite good, and the new version of river deep is OK, just not as good as the spectacualr original. The covers of 'come together' and 'things are going to work out fine' are particularly good. I'm having to dock this a few stars though, as I have had to go and buy another CD to get hold of a copy of the original river Deep.

What a fantastic album. Their version of Proud Mary is really something and I wish I had bought this long ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Original 'Bold Soul Sister' 17 Oct 2002
By KonLi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For those wishing to become acquainted with material by Ike and Tina Turner (though they may be few and far between) this is in fact the best compilation of their work. It grabs material from the Turners' early days on the Sue record label; which produced some of the most galvanizing r&b records of the period, to their stint with the Liberty/ United Artists label on which they had much of their success.
The disc opens with Tina's marvelous and bombastic "Fool in Love" on which Tina's strangled singing and shouting heralds the advent of a rising r&b singer. It also started a string of 5 Top 10 r&b releases for the Turners making them soul superstars. The best of the Sue Recordings are in fact "Fool" and "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" which was the Turner's biggest hit of the 60's reaching #2 and #14 on the r&b and Pop charts respectively. Unfortunately for us, the producers of this compilation weren't able to secure the proper rights to include the original Phil Spector version of "River Deep, Mountain High". Truly one of the most remarkable singles ever produced, "RDMH" was virtually ignored by radio in America as it was considered "too black for the white stations and too white for the black stations." However, in spite of this, Tina truly is in rare form on this record.
The disc presses on skipping from 1962-1968, in the process ignoring some very important Ike and Tina Turner material. Songs from ATCO were excluded as well as from the Turner's stint with Blue Thumb records. Ike and Tina recorded two fine albums on Blue Thumb, "Outta Season" and "The Hunter" which included the hits "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and the stunner "Bold Soul Sister". The album joins Ike and Tina on the Liberty label where they scored hit singles with covers of the Beatles "Come Together" and Sly Stone's "I Want To Take You Higher". The albums liner notes also include commentary on how the Turners actualyl charted 'higher' with their version of "Higher" as they made the song their own. Yet the cover song to end all covers was their cover of the CCR classic 'Proud Mary'. Tina's spoken intro is now one of rock and souls most famous locutions. Then they launch into the bombastic finish which helped them secure a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. The disc also includes the ever funky "Funkier Than a Mosquita's Tweeter" penned by Tina's sister Alline, Tina's first attempt at writing "Up In Heah" which is indeed a fine record though it went ignored. Then it comes to Tina's classic "Nutbush City Limits" and "Sexy Ida Pt.1" Songs that should have been included from the Turners days on Liberty /UA are : "The Chopper", "Up On the Roof" "Help Him" and a few others. You can find these on the recently released "Funkier Than a Mosquitas Tweeter." Finally we come to Tina's "Acid Queen". This is not the one from the movie which is one of the few disappointments on this disc. The cd ends with funny vintage radio skits by soul station DJs promoting the Turners' 1969/70 album "Come Together".
In all, this is the best place to start for the Ike and Tina novice. A great primer, this album and the 1997 release of "Bold Soul Sister" are a great place to learn about the beginning of two of Rock 'N' Soul's most uplifting entertainers...more specifically Tina. Remember, before there was Aretha or Gladys...there was Tina.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best overview of their talent alongside River Deep 20 Nov 2001
By Bradley Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you would like a career retrospective of Ike & Tina Turner on a single disc, this is the best overview. BTW, Acid Queen is not on River Deep-Mountain High while the title song of "River Deep" is the only re-recording on the album so if they were to include half stars, I'd say 4 1/2 rather than 5. Other than that, the liner notes are great and it does span her entire career with the only omission being the tracks from the River Deep-Mountain High album (you can get that separate here at Amazon.com as an import) featuring their hits on the Sue label such as the original recordings of A Fool In Love, I Idolize You and It's Gonna Work Out Fine (they have re-recorded these 3 songs on "River Deep-Mountain High" with Phil Spector being the producer) plus their biggest hits for Liberty/UA such as their soulful and funky version of the CCR classic "Proud Mary," and "Nutbush City Limits," and many lesser known gems such as "Funkier Than a Mosquita's Tweeter," "Sweet Rhode Island Red," "Up In Heah," "Workin' Together," and many others plus 1 single (A Side and B Side) from their years on the Minit label, their covers of "Come Together" and "Honky Tonk Women" are included. While Ron Furmanek is renowned for his remixing on other volumes in the Legends of Rock & Roll Series and the Legendary Master Series, these are all the original mixes in wonderfully remastered sound. Unless you are a diehard fan, this compilation and the "River Deep-Mountain High" album are all you need from Ike & Tina.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina's Best Work 1 Oct 2000
By jekyllnhyde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've never been a Tina Turner fan, & was only vaguely familiar with Ike & Tina's reputation as a duo, so I didn't know quite what to expect. But this is one of the best collections I've ever heard. Actually, there are two distinctly different parts. The first six or seven tracks are reminiscent of the "girl groups" of the 50's & 60's. But the rest of the set contains some of the funkiest, most soulful R&B and rock you'll ever hear. Covers of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Sly & the Family Stone and Creedence Clearwater all hold up well to the originals. Every song is consistently great. Tina hasn't been this good since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ike and Tina rock! 20 Jun 2000
By Matt F - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was so pleasantly surprised to learn there was alot more to Tina Turner than "whats love got to do with it". This music really grabs you. Tina's vocal range is phenominal and no matter what problems Ike had in his personal life, he's a musical genius. I highly recommend this CD.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Ike & Tina Turner Review, 1960-1975 1 Feb 2007
By Truth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Finding a good Ike & Tina compilation is no easy task. Not only did they record for multiple record labels, there are a plethora of low-budget and low-quality compilations available. This is one of the decent ones.

PROUD MARY: THE BEST OF IKE & TINA TURNER (from the "Legends of Rock n' Roll Series") consists of 23 songs recorded 1960-1975, in chronological order. Also included are two uncredited ("bonus") tracks; they are two commercials/radio ads for Ike & Tina. Disc packaged in black jewel case; total running time: 73:07. Booklet (in the form of a 6-pannel map-style fold-out sheet) includes a substantial small-font essay by Al Quaaglieri, one b&w photo of Ike & Tina, a photo of an assortment of original Ike & Tina album covers, and track information (including release dates and chart positions). Sound quality ranges from poor (on earlier recordings) to good; volume is low on all tracks.

This compilation seems to cover, with the exception of their Blue Thumb recordings, most of their career. Ike & Tina's labels included Sue, Modern/Kent, Warner Bros./Loma, Minit, Atlantic/Pompeii, Liberty, and United Artists. I do wish it included "Shake a Tail Feather".

The vocals of this Tina Turner are closer to that of LaVern Baker, Etta James, Lyn Collins, or Janis Joplin than to the pop/rock singer she would later become. She shouts and screams, often singing in a strained, almost forced-sounding, voice.

Notes: The version of "River Deep, Mountain High" is not the Phil Spector version; the version included is from the "Nutbush City Limits" LP. The voice heard on "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" and addressed as "Ikey" is not Ike Turner; it is Mickey of studio team Mickey & Sylvia. Ike's voice is heard on "Baby-Get It On", where he sings co-lead vocals. It is also interesting that the essayist mentions several times that the Ike & Tina story "would make a great movie" - this was a couple years before the 1993 bio-pic "What's Love Got to Do With It" was released.
