Editorial Reviews

In the early 70's, legendary rock photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya toured with Ike & Tina Turner and filmed them performing, on the road, and behind the scenes. Now for the first time ever this footage is unveiled. This is a look inside a hardworking band as well as an iconic couple.

This footage of Ike and Tina was shot during the peak of their career. Except for some hot performances by the Ikettes, particularly Esther Jones who was with the revue for many years, there isn't much new performance wise that isn't available elsewhere with far better quality. Almost all of the footage is black and white, the quality ranging from good to bad. The sound quality is not good at all.
It is mainly the non-muscial moments that are the best of this documentary and make it a must have for fans. Glimpses of the creative process, Ike at his studio Bolic Sound playing music, Tina talking about writing songs, singing and and rehearsing with the Ikettes, the entire troupe traveling by plane and car, waiting in airports and motels, you get the feel of the well oiled machine that was the Ike and Tina Turner Revue; a professional team of hard working entertainers, and in spite of being in a spot light at night, most of the life does not appear very glamorous. Of particular interest are two contrasting scenes of Tina that could have been shot on the same day; Tina at home as wife and mother, cooking dinner for and interacting with the Turner's sons, all of it appearing very much like a scene out of any typical American middle class family home video, except for the next scene where the conservatively dressed mother serving dinner to her children is now a rock and roll singer serving up a scorching version of "Feel Good" in a hot white dress on the Tonight Show.
Filmaker Bob Gruen says the movie Whats Love Got To Do With It showed why Ike and Tina broke up, while this documentary shows why they were together for 20 years. But look closely, evidence of the unhappiness of their marriage is here too: ever present just off camera and occasionally on is Ann Thomas, Ike's mistress.

IKE & TINA: ON THE ROAD 1971-72 is basically a home movie filmed with a portable video camera, which was high tech at the time -- but sub-par by today's standards, of the dynamic duo of Ike and Tina Turner, their band The Kings Of Rhythm, and their backing vocals and opening act, The Ikettes as they toured in 1971-72.

What makes this film different from your average everyday amateur home movie is that it was filmed by famed rock photojournalist Bob Gruen and his then wife, Nadya Beck. Gruen's pictures have captured everyone from the Turners to John Lennon and have become iconic in rock and roll history.

In this film, he and Nadya actually become part of the Turner's entourage filming them not only on and back stage, rehearsals and on the road, but also their home life and in the recording studio. The movie captures the excitement that the Ike & Tina Turner Revue had on stage, and it also shows the artistic process of them recording tracks. You also get to watch the band mates clowning around and you get to see the later incarnation of the Ikettes. Unfortunately, those people in the film aren't identified so you don't know who they are.

According to an interview in I, Tina: My Life Story (icon!t), Gruen says that they filmed about 50-hours of footage during this time. Here, that 50-hours is whittled down to 81-minutes of pure entertainment.

Interestingly enough, I'm reading the above book and in this DVD you get to see some of the players that were behind-the-scenes like Rhonda Grahm who was the business manager and Ann Thomas who was part of the Ikettes (although in non-singing form according to the book) and Ike's mistress.

Like other films by the husband/wife team of Bob Gruen and Nadya Beck – particularly their smashing look inside the lives of New York Dolls, ‘Lookin’ Fine On Television’ – the charm of this documentary lies in the fact that it isn’t really a documentary, or even – in the strictest terms – a film, as such. As they did with the Dolls, Gruen and Beck simply moved in with their subjects – both on the road and, literally, at home – capturing raw home movies, alternate views of live performances, over the shoulder and off the cuff interviews, and other voyeuristic visual and audio snippets that were later assembled into a loosely structured long-form film with no narrative voice, either literal or figurative. The end result is a gripping non-documentary that offers a fascinating look into the lives of what may very well be the most volatile couple in the history of rock ‘n’ roll: Ike & Tina Turner. The behind-the-scenes footage on display here, which has the almost-naughty feel of being captured without the subjects’ knowledge – though that is not the case, and actually speaks more to the level of regard that Gruen and Beck were held in than to anything else – offers glimpses into the lives and mindsets of both Ike and Tina that may shock, or at least surprise, most viewers. Footage of Tina cooking dinner, clowning around with her children, and ribbing Ike – with no sign of his infamous anger or aggression surfacing – pricelessly reveals the woman behind the glitz and glamor for which she’s become known, while footage of the duo onstage performing rip-roaring versions of ‘Proud Mary’, ‘Respect’, ‘I Want To Take You Higher’, ‘River Deep, Mountain High’, ‘Walking The Dog’, and over a dozen more songs makes it clear that Ike & Tina were damn near untouchable in their heyday.Read more ›
