Ike & Tina Turner - Bold Soul Sister

Album Hunter (Blue Thumb,1970)Chart Pos US#59 US R&B#22

Growing up the only things I remember about Tina Turner was the rather bland output she released in the 80's and Ike's wife beating, coke snorting antics. Even though the two of them had personal problems they still managed to release some impressive music together. Bold Soul Sister from 1970 took heavily from Sly & the Family Stone's 1968 hit Sing A Simple Song yeat still managed to top the song. Tina screams her way through through this raw funky cut, suprising when much of my earliest memories of hearing Tina Turner was hearing The Best being played on televised sporting events.

Here is the song that was the basis for this one, apparently Jimi Hendrix pilfered from it too.
