Blues & Soul - August 25, 1972

Ike with no Tina as he steams into a rousing and bluesy recitation of the old Lloyd Price BIues classic „Lawdy Miss Clawdy.“ It might serve for a lightning taster for his solo „Blues Roots“ album and it's certainly a well made record but I can't really imagine too many people rushing out to buy it. The b-side features Ike on another cut from the album and their resident backing band, the Family Vibes, on one of the least distinctive tracks from their own excellent album, simple entitled „Family Vibes“.
