5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational! December 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
No offense,but previous reviewer dont have a clue about rock history - how can anybody give 3 stars to one of the most influental albums of all time,I simply cannot understand!? OK lets see what do we got here: ORIGINAL (as a difference of countless complation albums with same name) LP recorded in 1966.and snubbed by audience in USA by the time of release.Seems that European listeners listened more carefully,as this album became huge hit in UK and it began a decades-long love affair between Tina and her European fans.Half "Wagnerian",undescribable symphonic sound of Phil Spector,half Ike's gutsy R&B,this album was monumental achievement of 1960's music and still sounds great today.As we all know,Ike was NOT close to studio on Spector's sessions,but still his name is one the cover of the album.At this stage of her life (27 years old) Tina was not a Goddes-in-making,but a wild Queen of Amazon woman warriors - her singing,passion and attitude are simply out of this world:numerous British rock stars were hugely impressed after hearing this album (Rod Stewart:"I wanted to BE Tina Turner") and Rolling Stones invited them on a UK tour immediately.Never mind commercial flop in USA,Brian Wilson from "Beach Boys" still list this album as one of his all-time favourites.One has also to remeber it was a girl-group age when girls sounded sweet,so Tina's wild vocals were completely different from the rest of the competition,she was obviously more inspired by screaming,hot soul male singers like James Brown than say,Motown girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina High, Spector Higher! December 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
George Harrison once called the single "River Deep, Mountain High" an absolutely perfect record ... and he wasn't far wrong. It was Phil Spector's pinnacle production -- and it remains a nearly overwhelming recording -- and reaching for the stars, he carried Tina to new heights. But music was changing in the mid '60s and America had tired of Spector's intricate productions and fabled Wall of Sound. The single barely dented the charts in the U.S., but became a smash in England and Europe and established Tina as a superstar there decades before she attained diva status here. The single's disappointing reception so embittered Spector that he stopped producing his own kind of music for a while (focusing on the Beatles' chaotic "Let It Be" tapes and, later, various solo Beatle projects) and was never again able fully to find his muse or the audience he'd once enjoyed. So enjoy this 'twilight of the gods' event; nothing remotely like it has come along since and likely ever will. Although Spector is credited as producer of the entire album, he appears to have been personally involved only in the production of about half the 12 tracks -- the ones with Tina performing with Spector's own orchestra, not Ike's group. You'll be to pick them out instantly. The A&M version of the LP was released in America about five years after the single was released and the British version of the LP (which has one different track). It was released in mono only in Britain, but the American version was in stereo. Mobile Fidelity put out the best-sounding CD of this I ever heard, but that disc has long been out of print (as MoFi is, sadly, itself these days). However, this is your best bet to catch this fabulous music in stereo. The versions of the songs from this album released on Spector's box set are in mono ... the way Spector seems to prefer everything. But mono just can't to full justice to the sweep and power of the stereo versions in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ike & Tina and Spector stereo classic November 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the most influential albums of all time and is a highlight of Phil Spector's career. A few of these songs: I Idolize You, A Fool In Love and It's Gonna Work Out Fine were hits when they were signed to the Sue label and the original versions are on the "Proud Mary: The Best of Ike & Tina Turner" compilation on EMI which is THE essential compilation of their hits spanning their entire career but with nothing from this album although that compilation does have an inferior remake of the title song from this album. The title track of course is the most essential track of the album but the rest of the album is as well produced as this album. I actually have another CD pressing of this album that features this album in stereo plus "Sonny Charles & The Checkmates, Ltd.'s "Love Is All We Have To Give" on CD in stereo, featuring "Black Pearl" as a Spanish import The Sonny Charles album is not available on CD otherwise. As mentioned in another review, all songs from this album that are on the Back To Mono boxed set are in mono, the stereo versions are great while I'll add that another mono copy of the title song is on Tina's "Simply The Best" compilation from 1989 on Capitol with her 1980's comeback hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered from Hip-O Select. April 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This disc has been gloriously remastered and is well worth the bit of money it'll cost for a disc without any extra tracks or even the expansive packaging that Hip-O is known for. But all the complaints fade once you hear River Deep - Mountain High the way you are supposed to hear it, with that choral "Wall of Sound" hitting and clearing your eardrums like a baseball bat upside the head! Every single track on this disc is a wonder; Spector's arrangements and Turner's monstrous vocals shine and fight for power/control until the disc comes to an unwanted end.
