Billboard Review

March 10, 1962

Here’s a rousing, exuberant package of danceable instrumentals (the Turner's don't sing here) with strong teen-appeal. The line-up, featuring standout guitar work, includes „The Gulley,“ „Potato Mash,“ „Steel Guitar Rag“ and „Twistaroo“. Dual market appeal for pop and r&b buyers.

March 10, 1962

For their second Sue LP Ike and Tina Turner, who recently hit singles-wise with „Poor Fool,“ offer a variety of swinging items in a fast-moving dancing vein. Teamed up with their Kings of Rhythm, a real hot instrumental group, the two-some belt out with a down-to-earth sincerity on twelve terpsichorean excursions. Most of the tunes here were penned by Ike. including „The Gulley,” „Potato Mash,” and „Going Home”. The couple’s fans should really dig this one.
