Today's 45 is a hot slab of soul from Ike & Tina Turner. What can really be said about the Queen of Rock and Roll that hasn't been said? This woman born to a family of modest means in Tennessee was occasionally performing with Ike by the time she was 18.
A lucky break allowed her to sing on 1960's "A Fool In Love" which became huge hit. Anna Mae Bullock married Ike in Tijuana and "Tina Turner" was born. Ike Turner was involved in the music business forever. He was helping the DJ at WROX in Clarksdale Mississippi at the tender age of 8. The first recording he was ever involved in, "Rocket 88" by Jackie Brenston, is considered by many to be one of the first "Rock" songs ever. Through the 60s and into the mid-70's, Ike and Tina were untouchable.
