Ike and Tina Turner: Hammersmith Odeon, London; Cockney Rebel: Rainbow Theatre, London
Philip Norman, The Times, 21 October 1974
THE IKE AND Tina Turner revue is the most constant reminder of what a debt we owe to Phil Spector. Had Specter not produced Tina Turner in 'River Deep, Mountain High' with such unrepeatable grandeur, she might never have applied herself to matching his studio effects by the sheer momentum of her torso. And we should never see what we saw again on Saturday night at Hammersmith.
