Billboard Review

August 02, 1969

Ike & Tina Turner, enjoying competitive sales from the many labels with rights to their recordings, add some Pompeii product to the sweepstakes and bid for a solid position on the charts. By far the best of the lot, Pompeii's contribution features the dynamic singing and instrumental soul duo in a committed r&b performance that sparkles with fine production from Ike Turner. Tina is powerful and persuasive in the title tune, plus „Poor Little Fool“ and „You Got What You Wanted“.
