IKE & TINA TURNER: Kings of Rhythm Dance LP


In stock


Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm - The Gulley

It's Gonna Work Out Fine

In the late 1950s, Tina Turner (née Anna Mae Bullock) caught a performance of Ike Turner‘s Kings of Rhythm at a St. Louis nightclub and practically begged Ike to let her sing with the band. Ike refused, as only men were allowed to sing in his group at the time, but she persisted, and once he heard Tina sing he wouldn’t let her stop. Since that fateful meeting, the world of R&B has never been the same. Ike & Tina Turner’s Kings of Rhythm Dance is their second long player, originally released in 1961, and it is full of stompers, rippers, and all around rocking R&B magic. Ike’s guitar tone and style are the perfect complement to Tina’s unmistakable voice. Now nearly impossible to find on original LP at a reasonable price, Rumble once again saves the party by putting another rare R&B classic back in print. Features the original hit version of “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine.”
