Some folks consider the record a pivotal moment in the development of funk, but really it's close to what The MG's were putting out at this time, only less melodic and memorable "Thinking Black," which could have been a cop show theme.
King 's " Rock Me Baby. Otherwise, though, there's a lot of very ordinary, rote blues on tap "Please Love Me". The first of two albums Ike licensed to Blue Thumb, and coincidentally or not their two album covers making explicit racial statements: this one shows winking Turners in whiteface eating watermelon. Produced by Bob Krasnow and Tina. Ike plays the plentiful guitar leads, and they're competent though no revelation "Early In The Morning".
So as usual, the quality of the record comes down to Tina's vocal leads, I Smell Trouble - Tina Turner - Rock Me Baby (CD), and as usual, she's an effective interpreter on the rare occasions that she dials down below eleven "I Know".
This time, the album cover depicts the Turners posing in front of numerous strung-up Caucasian mannequins. But the band hits on a series of powerful deep pocket grooves, not too fast or I Smell Trouble - Tina Turner - Rock Me Baby (CD) slow, giving Tina something she can work with "Too Much Woman For A Henpecked Man "while her lyrics push boundaries of acceptable subject matter "Contact High"; "Young And Dumb". The Up With People number "Why Can't We Be Happy" features an extended wah-wah solo, but mostly the stinging guitars complement Tina's voice rather than attempting to outshine it.
Their famous take on Credence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary" became a hit, and the act's signature song. The show opens with two from the Ikettes " Piece Of My Heart " and " Everyday People " and two introductions before Tina I Smell Trouble - Tina Turner - Rock Me Baby (CD) the stage and the show starts to take off.
The relentless breathlessness doesn't leave Turner much room for subtlety in her interpretations "Sweet Soul Music"though the tempo comes down a couple of times the blues "I Smell Trouble"; "A Love Like Yours".
The endlessly extended version of "Proud Mary" is the key track, of course. The other cornerstone is an equally lengthy version of "I've Been Loving You Too Long" highlighted by crude oral sex playacting by the Turners - I'm not against smut for smut's sake, but here it wipes out the emotional power of Redding's tune.
DBW Nuff Said Another big concept shift, as these "songs" are mostly just a collection of unstructured vamps distinguished by Tina's repeated interjections the two-part title track; "Tell The Truth". Which may bring to mind James Brown 's early 70s output, but these tunes are organ-driven Stax soul "Sweet Flustrations" rather than Brown's syncopated funk.
DBW Live In '71 rec. DBW Feel Good Largely a continuation of the jam-heavy approach of Nuff Saidthough there are more memorable riffs the funk stew "Bolic" and a broader instrumental palette, with touches of synth and wah-wah guitar.
Also, apart from a slow, soulful " She Came In Through The Bathroom Window " almost everything is by Tina though recent reissues credit Ike on most tunes as well - I don't know if that was a publishing issue or what. Though most tunes are originals again, "River Deep" is remade as a rave-up, while "You Are My Sunshine" - transformed into simmering funk - and " Drift Away " are covered. After this release, the Turners' marriage broke up and so did the act. Or vice versa.
