The best of the blue thumb recordings is a compilation with the best tracks of Ike & Tina 's two blues albums which they made for Blue thumb records in the late sixties: "Outta Season" and "the hunter". If you listen to this album, you would want to see Tina Turner make another blues record again. Although the material she recorded since "Private Dancer" is of high quality, the music on this compilation shows a Tina which a lot of younger fans don't know and is really worth knowing ! Also we may not forget what a brilliant musician Ike Turner was and still is (Check out his new album "My blues Country"). If you like the blues...buy it, you won't regret it !

Although it may be hard to find, buy the cd on Blue Moon records, a Spanish record label, that features the complete The Hunter and Outta Season albums. They both fit onto one cd, so why they left out 8 tracks and called it The Best of the Blue Thumb recordings is beyond me. So the one star is not for the music itself (which is great!) but for the 8 tracks left out.

The song Bold Soul Sister popped up on my iPod today. Toward the end of it I realized," Holy Smokes, that's Albert Collins playing solo guitar fills". He's unmistakable. Even though he's not credited on the CD it makes sense because I believe Albert put something out on Blue Thumb too. True story: when I was a young lad (14 maybe) I helped move equipment for an Ike and Tina show. I sat right by the side of stage. This would have been about 1970. At one point during the show somebody handed me Ike's Strat....I couldn't resist strumming a chord or two on it. He had the action set low!

On a side note, in the new Wayne Shorter bio there is a crazy story about him walking into his house to find Tina, the greatest rock singer ever, scrubbing his floors. Read the book for the details.

PS Check out the non-Phil Spector River Deep, Mountain High on the EMI Best of Ike and Tina Turner..stunning vocal track!!

In 1969, after "A Fool in Love" and "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" and before "Proud Mary" and "Nutbush City Limits", Ike & Tina recorded two albums for the Blue Thumb label. The songs on this compilation are taken from those recordings.

BOLD SOUL SISTER consists of 16 songs recorded in 1969 in non-chronological order. Disc packaged in black jewel case; total running time: 50:10. Booklet includes a poorly written short essay by Amy Linden, a series b&w shots of Ike & Tina from a photo session, and songwriter credits; albums of origin, chart positions, musician personnel, and recording dates are not included. Sound quality is good.

What is most disappointing about this compilation is its brevity. It seems that at well under an hour of music, the CD could have included the remaining tracks from "Outta Season" and "The Hunter" not included here; it is very common for two LPs to be re-issued on a single disc. (In fact, those 2 LPs were released on a single disc in 2004.)

The 16 tracks included are some great Blues recordings by Tina Turner, seemingly with minimal instrumentation, sans the Ikettes and Kings of Rhythm. Songs include "Rock Me Baby", "Dust My Broom", and Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long".

The music is good, but with a little effort this COULD have been a GREAT compilation.

This album is amazing! It is by far the best album that Tina & Ike Turner ever made! You should buy it if you can get a copy of it!

Bought this for my wife as she has been a Tina fan from the beginning. Sound quality is good and crisp. My wife was very happy. Although she said they could have left out the photos of Ike.
