IT'S GONNA WORK OUT FINE * IKE & TINA TURNER * SUE 749 * USA

Ike Turner first surfaces on record as far back as 1951 with his band The Kings Of Rhythm: he writes, manages, produces, arranges, plays, on his own records,  backs others on theirs, and nurtures new acts; truly a talented individual. Tina Turner first appears with Ike on Sue 731 A Fool In Love, this was their fifth 45 release on Sue. The voice accompanying Tina on the above, who I assumed all these years was Ike, is in fact Mickey 'Guitar' Baker, which just goes to show, assume nothing.
