This album (Tina's second solo, after Tina Turns The Country On) is stunning.
The album was, for the most part, made because of Tina's appearance in The Who's "Tommy", and the great recording in that film of Acid Queen by Tina. The version heard here is not the one from the film, but a recording made just by Tina (as opposed to under the direction of The Who). So in true "cash in album" tradition this should be crap...but its not.
Under My Thumb and Lets Spend The Night Together, both Rolling Stones songs penned by rocker songsmiths Jaggar/Richards are made completely new by Tina, in her own style. As are I Can See For Miles, a song originally by The Who released previously to their Tommy work.
Whole Lotta Love, a Led Zeppelin track (the original of which, goes without saying, is a classic) is turned into a sensual...almost "porn groove", but never-the-less, rocks in Tina's hands.
Some Ike Turner compositions appear here also: Baby Get It On, the last Ike & Tina hit, Bootsy Whitelaw, Rockin' & Rollin' Pick Me Tonight are as good as any of the duos work. Also features Tina's stellar performance of Otis Reddings brilliant I've Been Loving You Too Long.
Over all, this album did cash in...big time, proving Tina to be rocker, as well as a soul/funk belter, and paved the way to her later albums (Rough and Love Explosion, which should also be reissued for us die hard Tina fans) and the monster solo pieces Private Dancer and Break Every Rule.
A Must have for Tina fans, and classic rock fans alike.
