Biography

2001 marked the Golden Anniversary of a GOLD Record from an Era when Fifty-thousand 45’s was a BIG Seller. That 500K-selling Single cut the edge of a new style before deejay Alan Freed named it: ROCK & ROLL. Sam Phillips, Sun Studios founder, tagged that Billboard #1 R&B Smash as the very first “Rock & Roll Recording”. Every hell-raiser, hip-shaker, and hit-maker ...

Editorial Reviews

Taken from a variety of sources, this collects 22 of Ike Turner's instrumentals from 1954-1965, none of them vocals, none of them recorded with Tina Turner, and all of them highlighting his guitar work. Turner's really wild and uninhibited for much of this set, especially in his ferocious string-bending and use of the whammy bar. While the tunes themselves are mostly generic R&B with a touch of rock & roll, it's also fair to say that generic instrumental rock rarely sounds this good, mostly because Turner's guitar work is so much more inventive and passionate than the nominal songs to which they're tethered. About half of this consists of the tracks on his 1962 Sue album, Dance With Ike & Tina Turner and Their Kings of Rhythm Band, a good showcase for his crackling axework on a batch of mostly self-imposed wordless workouts. There are also a couple of numbers he cut in the late '50s under the pseudonym Icky Renrut; a 1965 single with brass that has a more soul-oriented arrangement than anything else here, albeit soul of a gutbucket kind; and a smattering of items dating back to his mid-'50s R&B days with Flair. There's also an odd nine-minute medley of instrumental blues covers, "All the Blues All the Time," which wound up on a 1963 Crown LP, Rocks the Blues. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

4.0 out of 5 stars icky renrut August 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
this is a good overview of the instrumental work done by Ike Turner (and his Kings of Rhythm). Most of it is good, hard driving R&B stuff. All of the songs were recorded between 1954-65. I particularly like the cuts "The New Breed (Part 2)", and "The Gulley", really gets you moving.......BTW, Icky Renrut is a pseudonym (or anagram, take your pick) for Ike Turner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Ike March 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nice CD if you want to get a good idea of the various sounds Ike Turner could wrest from his guitar. Like many instrumental albums, this suffers from a certain sameness in the cuts, but all in all, a decent CD. Prancin' just about makes the CD worthwhile on its own.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Father of Rock October 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it, with the song Rocket 88, Ike Turner started a something that no-one could have predicted would be the giant genre it is today. That's right folks, Rock & Roll. This compilation of instrumental tracks showcases the talent that is Ike Turner (sans Tina). Listen to the skill with which he plays the guitar and piano and you can't help but notice where everyone from Elvis to Led Zepplin drew their inspiration. If you like in your face blues, rock and R&B, and want to journey back to the early days, pick up this great album.
