Their new album Let Me Touch Your Mind finds Ike & Tina again doing standard songs, after a long period in which they recorded only originals. Hank Ballards „Annie Had A Baby“ meets Carole King's „Up On The Roof,“ and even „Born Free“ fits in when the Turner's exciting treatment is applied. Nobody else in the world knows how to make music like Ike & Tina. As unique as this cover design, it combines both the roughest and the smoothest qualities of rhythm & blues at it's best to produce the unforgettable sound that made classics of songs like „Proud Mary“ and „Honky Tonk Women“ after nobody thought the original versions could be taken any farther. But then it never pays to underestimate Ike & Tina Turner. They'll get you every time.
