Ike & Tina Turner - Baby, Get It On - Single

Baby, Get It On is the last chart entry for Ike & Tina Turner before their separation. It was taken as the first single from Tina’s second solo album Acid Queen and is one of the rare songs with lead vocals from Ike and Tina together. Ike produced many different versions of this song, among others an extended disco version, released on some single b-sides and on the 12“ maxi single. Ike & Tina promoted the song live at several tv shows in America and Europe, like the „Cher Show“ and on the German Musikladen.

Billboard Review

Ike and Tina Turner’s forthcoming single Baby, Get It On (UA) has all the excitement and sound of the Rolling Stones' funky Rock 'n' Roll. The duo could have a big disco winner on its hands with this one.

CashBox Review

May 10, 1975

Ike and Tina strike out hard with their most powerful commercial AM cut in quite some time. Particularly important for Tina, riding high as she is currently following her „Acid Queen“ role in „Tommy“. This tune is a super rocker, with driving rhythm, screamin’ vocals by Tina and the man. Fine break with some funky piano, guitar and vocal interplay between this super duo. What a way to break out into the top ten for one of Americas fave ensembles. Six stars, must go top ten territory.
