EVRYBODY KNOWS THAT JAMES BROWN WAS KNOWN AS THE HARDEST WORKING MAN IN SHOW BUSINESS. TINA TURNER COULD GIVE HIM A GOOD RUN FOR HIS MONEY (EVEN THO' SHE'S A WOMAN- JUST ASK MICK JAGGER, HE STOLE HER ACT!). THIS IS A CD OF A LIVE PERFORMANCE OF THE IKE AND TINA TURNER REVUE SOMETIME IN THE 1970'S. INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, ALTHOUGH THE CD HAS LINER NOTES, IT DOES NOT SAY WHERE OR WHEN THIS PERFORMANCE WAS RECORDED, JUST HAS A LOT OF GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT IKE AND TINA. THIS IS A GOOD PERFORMANCE, BUT THE RECORDING QUALITY IS NOT THE GREATEST, SO IT LOSES A STAR FOR THAT. BUT THE SONG SELECTIONS ARE GREAT AND IT IS A VERY GOOD CD NEVERTHELESS.

This is a collection of 12 of Ike and Tina's live performances. If you are not a fan, and you have ears-you will be. It is truly 'raw & Funky'. Now, if you really want to complete this collection, try and find 'Sweet Rhode Island Red'. Then you will be an Ike & Tina, 'Master'.

Great sounding live album. A lot of soul in these songs and the quality is really good. Some of the songs are covers but Ike & Tina style makes them quite different than the originals and they really are classic.

Live, Raw & Funky is a recording of a live concert by the Ike and Tina Turner Revue sometimes in the 1970s. That’s an almost automatic guarantee of listening pleasure. The only letdown is the recording quality. Compared to the 1971 live concert released on double long play discs by United Artist back in 1971, my first purchase of an Ike and Tina Turner album, it’s bearable, but not good. Maybe it’s a bootleg recording, recorded on the sly from the audience.

It’s a standard set –little new, if anything –“Proud Mary,” sung slow, then slow again, then at a blistering tempo, then out, “Honky Tonk Woman” and “Respect”, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “I Want to Take You Higher,” others. “Son of a Preacher Man” is good, as is “Nutbush City Limits,” which was their first big hit together. One of my favorite songs by this group, “Ooh Poo Pah Doo,” seems lame compared to the version on the United Artists disc but that may be just the effect of memory –I’m listening to the one and remembering the other. In general, I think Tina does a better job on the hot, up tunes than on the slower torchier songs, but that’s my personal preference. There’s no question that Tina’s a force of life. As to Ike’s contribution, he doesn’t play flashy solos but whatever he brought to the revue, it works.

In sum, this recording offers a good sampling of what Ike and Tina actually sounded like in concert but almost all the songs on it can be found on other recordings with much better sound fidelity.

Love this CD. It is music from my teenage years and just listening to it takes me back. Tina Turner is one fantastic musican. Has so much energy it comes out in their music. Would recommend this CD in a heartbeat.
