Ike And Tina Turner River Deep Mountain High on LP
Originally released on A&M Records in 1966, legendary gut-bucket R&B/soul act Ike And Tina Turner's River Deep Mountain High celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016. The historic 12-song collection features tracks produced by both Phil Spector and Ike Turner, with the two impresarios incorporating very different techniques with riveting results. Of course, the thread that ties all of the material together here are the outstanding vocal acrobatics of the one and only Tina Turner, right at home on Ike's old catalog revampings and the perfect foil for Spector's Wall of Sound. The iconic title track and album anchor checks in at an impressive No. 33 on Rolling Stone's '500 Greatest Songs of All Time'.
