Let Me Touch Your Mind was recorded at Ike’s Bolic Sound studio in July 1972 and features two tracks written by Tina Turner. The album was originally released with a very special deluxe foldout cover, designed and with many artistic pictures from Norman Seeff. He photographed Ike & Tina as well as Tina solo many times. The title track Let Me Touch Your Mind was the only worldwide single, while Annie Had A Baby was only released in Portugal. The song Early One Morning was only promoted in America, but was the b-side on the European single With A Little Help From My Friends. The track „Born Free“ was taken from the same named Columbia motion picture. The album was re-issued on the double CD Workin’ Together / Let Me Touch Your Mind in 2011.

Just about the same thing can be said about the latest Ike & Tina album as about their other recent-vintage successes on UA. It is burningly energetic soul with Tina's uniquely sexy showmanship way out front on display, in a well-conceived program of Turner originals and covers. Duos next hit could be the slow-cooking title tune or Tina's lecture on mating „Help Him“. Jacket packaging is a unique foldout poster with computer-processed abstractions.
