5.0 out of 5 stars Badass music by a bad man, 8 Aug 2010
This review is from: A Black Man's Soul (MP3 Download)
Isaac Wister Turner was not what you might call a temperate man. (You can find all the gory details on Wikipedia and for Tina's point of view watch "What's Love Got to Do With It").
But you've got to listen to the music he created. Ike was R&B - Throughout the sixties The Ike & Tina Turner Revue set the standard for live music, a real achievement when you look at their contemporaries.
A Black Man's Soul came out in 1969 and is the sound of a band honed through years on the chitlin circuit. It's got to be one of the most under-valued soul albums ever recorded. Listen to the opening drum solo by Mack Johnson on "Funky Mule" - a timeless breakbeat standard. Billy Preston playing a wicked piano on "Getting Nasty" - (if it sounds familiar, it was sampled by Jurassic 5 on Concrete Schoolyard.)
All in all, A Black Man's Soul is stone-cold funk classic - a must for any soul fan.
