The Ike and Tina Turner Revue was one of the highest energy ensembles on the soul circuit in the late 60s and early 70s.

Ike Turner had begun as a bandleader and talent scout in the 40s for blues and R&B performers. He recorded "Rocket 88," considered by many the first rock n' roll recording, under the name of his baritone sax player, Jackie Brenston, in 1951.

Turner and his band, the Kings of Rhythm, found a young singer named Annie Mae Bullock in 1956. Eventually, the singer was renamed Tina Turner and the two married.

Their first hit, "A Fool in Love," was recorded in 1961 when another singer failed to show up for a session. After several early 60s hit R&B singles, including "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" in 1961, they became major stars in England.

A 1971 cover version of John Fogerty's "Proud Mary" reached No. 4 on the pop chart. Ike and Tina divorced in 1976.
