Pick Of The Week: This Kent outing for Ike & Tina Turner is already stirring up a heap of attention. Tagged „I Can’t Believe What You Say,“ it’s a high-speed handclapping twister that sports a host of ultra-commercial vocal and instrumental sounds. Watch it. Backing’s a soul-filled shuflle-rock blueser that Tina wails with loads of feeling. (Kent 402)
