Cussin', Cryin', Gettin' It On: Ike and Tina Turner/The Jeff Beck Group/Blind Faith

Ellen Sander, Saturday Review, 30 August 1969

BONNIE BRAMLETT (of Delaney and Bonnie) may have honed her pipes in small Southern towns where Ike and Tina Turner were the local band, and Janis Joplin may draw from the rich black roots of her Gospel blues and rave about Tina Turner on the Dick Cavett Show, but experiencing Tina Turner on stage, on television, or on records is breaking out the good stuff. While rhythm and blues are the spine of rock, and Gospel music spikes the latest excitement in pop, Tina Turner is still the genuine original article.
